Nicolo Zaniolo’s agent makes Tottenham Hotspur transfer revelation, claims Jose Mourinho isn’t right coach for him

Former Serie A defender and current Italian agent Massimo Brambati has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur came very close to signing Nicolo Zaniolo this summer.

He gave an interview to Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb where he spoke about the AS Roma playmaker. Football.London cover the gist of the interview, but Brambati’s comments mentioned below are a roughly translated version of what he told TMW.

“Not for me [when asked if Jose Mourinho is the right coach for Zaniolo]. Tottenham were close to signing Zaniolo in the last transfer market, there was a meeting in August where the player, together with his father, met with Tottenham managers to go there. Conte probably would have pulled something more out of him.”

The Lilywhites’ supposed interest in Zaniolo would be no news for their fans. The 23-year-old midfielder has been one of Roma’s best players recently and was a key figure in their UEFA Europa Conference League win last season.

It was a shame we couldn’t sign him this summer. He could have been a great addition, especially at the time when Richarlison, Kulusevski, and Lucas Moura were having injury issues.

Spurs must rekindle Zaniolo interest

Some would have felt that Paulo Dybala’s arrival on a free transfer from Juventus could subdue his importance in the team. Despite a red card suspension and shoulder injury, he has still featured in 14 games across competitions for manager Jose Mourinho this campaign.

This shows that he is one of the Portuguese manager’s most trusted players. Brambati’s opinion that manager Antonio Conte could get more out of Zaniolo is subjective and should be treated as that.

Signing the former Inter Milan star would be a brilliant piece of business if done in the near future but it remains to be seen if we rekindle our interest in him. His contract expires in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt).

This means that Spurs should not stop tracking him and be there to pounce if several months pass and he is yet to renew his deal. Zaniolo can play as a right winger and as an attacking midfielder – a profile our team seriously lacks.
