Tottenham handed transfer boost as Nicolo Zaniolo talks with AS Roma are off
According to popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a boost in their pursuit of talented Italian forward Nicolo Zaniolo with his contract talks with AS Roma completely breaking down.
Roma are now set to find a formula to sell Zaniolo in the current January transfer window. It is being claimed that Tottenham have been made aware of the situation with the Italian club wanting a €40m transfer fee.
Zaniolo is a very talented forward who has had a great time at Roma. His impressive displays have caught the eye of many clubs in the past. The Italian continues to dazzle and could be set to showcase his talents in the Premier League.
The 23-year-old Italian is just the kind of player that we should be looking to sign. He is versatile and can play in multiple positions. He would suit an Antonio Conte system really well if brought in..
Zaniolo has scored two goals and provided three assists in 17 games across competitions this season. The Italian creative forward is a much better player than those numbers suggest and Jose Mourinho would agree with this.
The Italian international has been in contract talks with the Italian club for quite some time now but the two parties have been unable to reach an agreement. He has less than 18 months left on his current deal at Roma (Transfermarkt) and is now set to leave.
Tottenham’s bench this season has been depleted of attackers due to injuries. Against Man City last night, there was only one forward on the bench apart from the three who started the game.
This is not ideal for a club of Tottenham’s stature. Investing in Zaniolo seems to make a lot of sense from many facets. He is still very young, has the quality and can add a lot of depth in our attacking areas.
