Tottenham, Manchester United linked with AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo

According to Italian publication Leggo (h/t Daily Star), Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United could be set to go head-to-head for the signing of AS Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo this summer. The Italian outfit have been cash-strapped due to the coronavirus crisis and as a result, could be forced to offload their star player this summer.

Zaniolo, who spent time at the youth setups of Genoa, Fiorentina, Entella and Inter Milan, joined AS Roma in 2018. In a short time at the club, the 20-year-old has grown into a key player for the Giallorossi and has been earmarked as one of the best talents to have come out of Italy in recent years.

In his debut season with Roma, Zaniolo produced a return of six goals and three assists from 36 appearances in all competitions. He was on course to better that tally in 2019/20 before a knee injury cut his season short. So far this term, the versatile attacking midfielder has scored six times and set up two more in 24 games.

Zaniolo signed a new contract with Roma in August last year, extending his stay at the club till 2024. However, given the circumstances, the Serie A giants could be forced to sell their rising star in the summer, putting Tottenham on high alert. (h/t Daily Star)

Having allowed Christian Eriksen to leave in the January transfer window, we could definitely use another quality attacking midfielder in the ranks.

Moreover, Zaniolo is more than capable of playing on the right flank as well. He would be adding quality depth to the attacking contingent that was found lacking in bench strength this season. Given his age, Zaniolo would prove to be a long-term investment for the club as well.

However, Roma value their prized asset at €60m, which is a problem for Tottenham. Our club will be operating on a tight transfer budget due to the coronavirus crisis. And, splashing that much money on a single player, when multiple positions need strengthening seems doubtful.
