Tottenham transfer news: Paratici makes move for Conte's dream signing

Tottenham Hotspur have now made a proposal for Nicolo Zaniolo, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Fabio Paratici wants to take him on loan with an option to buy.

Zaniolo could well move on from Roma in the last couple of weeks of the January transfer window. Di Marzio reports that he has got the green light to leave the Italian capital.

And there is no shortage of potential admirers. The report claims that Spurs are rivalling Borussia Dortmund and West Ham for the 23-year-old.

It is suggested that the Giallorossi are yet to receive any permanent bids for Zaniolo. However, it seems that Tottenham have confirmed their interest by making a proposal.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Paratici has registered an intention to take the attacking midfielder on loan which would become permanent if certain conditions were met.

It is not clear whether Roma would be willing to accept such a bid. But it is intriguing that they are open to letting him go.

Zaniolo has not had the best season so far, scoring just once in Serie A. And he is someone who has had to deal with a couple of serious injuries in the past.

However, he is definitely a player Antonio Conte would be delighted to have in the ranks. In fact, previous reports from Sky Italia claimed that he dreamed of using him alongside Harry Kane.

He has also been labelled an ‘incredible‘ talent. And Tottenham have a pretty good record of late when it comes to signing Serie A players on loan with a view to a permanent move.
