It was believed that the Italian capital club would be willing to sell Zaniolo this summer, in order to fund a squad rebuild. And, Tottenham had planned to approach the representatives of the 21-year-old in order to explore the possibility of a transfer. (h/t Football.london)

Apart from Tottenham, Serie A champions Juventus and Inter Milan had also been linked with a move for the Italian international. (h/t Football.london)

Zaniolo, who can play as a No. 10 or on the flanks, would certainly have been a quality addition to our ranks. Considering how Dele Alli underperformed last season, having the Italian would not only have added depth to the side, but would also have served with added motivation for Alli to step up his game.

However, it seems like the Italian international will be staying put in Rome for the foreseeable future.
