AC Milan make approach for Tottenham Hotspur target Nicolo Zaniolo
In what will come as an obvious blow for Tottenham Hotspur, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that AC Milan have made an approach for AS Roma playmaker Nicolo Zaniolo.
Spurs are in danger of missing out on the Italy international by being stingy once again. That was the reason we lost to Arsenal in the race for Belgium international Leandro Trossard.
And it seems that we are doing it again with Zaniolo. Roma value Zaniolo at £35million (Sky Sports) but Spurs are seemingly not able to meet his asking price. They want him on loan.
According to Romano, AC Milan’s offer for the Roma playmaker is also not going to meet the club’s valuation. He also adds that Spurs want the player with an option, rather than an obligation to buy.
What are we waiting for?
I Giallorossi understandably want any clause to buy the player to be obligatory. Otherwise, if a club backs out in the summer, they will have then to find a new buyer for him with six months shaved off his current contract- given he doesn’t renew his deal at the Stadio Olimpico.
Milan offer Zaniolo that Spurs can’t, and that is the chance to stay in Italy – his homeland – and in a league he is comfortable playing in. At Spurs, there will be new surroundings.
A new city, new language, new culture, and new tactics can be overwhelming for some players, which is why every foreign import isn’t always a success here. Hopefully, Spurs come to their senses and get this deal ahead of Milan.

The 23-year-old is one of the finest Italian forwards in his age bracket and has the potential to be something special. He can also play behind the striker and will surely add something exciting to this Spurs side which has been rather drab in recent weeks.
