Conte’s Tottenham pushing to sign Roma star Zaniolo – report

Tottenham are reportedly preparing to open serious talks with Roma in a bid to find a deal for Nicolo Zaniolo.

La Gazzetta dello Sport details how several Spurs players invited the Italian forward to join them in North London after the friendly match between the two clubs in Israel last week. Antonio Conte is a big fan of the 23-year-old and is pushing to see him brought to North London.

Roma would likely accept a €50m offer for Zaniolo and Tottenham are hoping to include a player in the deal, with possible options including Japhet Tanganga, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilón and Giovanni Lo Celso.

Whilst the first two of these players would be useful to Roma on a tactical level, especially Ndombele, the club are hoping to cash in on the sale of Zaniolo. They’re also wary of the high wages received by Spurs’ offerings.

Concrete negotiations could kick off between the two clubs as early as next week and things will be split into two separate elements: the first focused solely on the sale of Zaniolo and the second regarding possible loans for Tottenham’s unneeded players.

  1. I particularly don’t like the PL big clubs doing their shopping in Serie A, and in the process, taking away big names from the league

  2. @ace – whats wrong with it, why would a player stay at roma – no offence wont challenge for anything worthy – most pundicts are predicting tottenham to finish 3rd this season in epl – behind man city / liverpool only.

    He has to develop.

    Only italian team who can afford him are juventus – but we have the anti christ managing us

  3. @mohammed what will spurs be fighting for? the ‘prestigious’ league cup.

    Plus Zaniolo wouldn’t be guaranteed to get in Spurs starting 11 so he would be better staying put for guaranteed minutes. Forza Roma.

  4. Come on…. Tottenham? for real?
    please save your energy

    talking from a neutral perspective, why would he want to go to tottenham LOL

  5. Mohammed: “Roma will not challenge for anything worthy.”
    Also Mohammed: “Zaniolo should go to Spurs who will fight for third place.”
