Galatasaray set €15m price tag for Nicolo Zaniolo amid Interest from Fiorentina


Nicolo Zaniolo’s future remains uncertain as the 24-year-old Italian midfielder prepares to return to Galatasaray after a disappointing loan spell at Aston Villa. The Turkish club has set a reasonable asking price of €15 million for the former Roma player, a figure that could attract potential suitors seeking to reignite Zaniolo’s promising talent.

Calciomercato report that while Zaniolo’s agent, Claudio Vigorelli, has received a significant offer from Villarreal that meets Galatasaray’s demands, the player himself has requested time to carefully evaluate all options for the upcoming season. Zaniolo’s priority is to return to Serie A, aiming to secure a place in the Italian national team setup.

Fiorentina have already registered their interest in acquiring Zaniolo’s services, but a surprise contender has emerged in the form of Atalanta. Gian Piero Gasperini, the Atalanta manager, is said to be keen on the prospect of Zaniolo joining the Bergamo-based club, making this an intriguing option for the Italian midfielder.

Luciano Spalletti, the former Napoli coach, has never hidden his admiration for Zaniolo, who was forced to miss the European Championships with Italy due to a microfracture in his left foot. This could potentially open the door for a return to Serie A, where Zaniolo hopes to rediscover his form and cement his place in the national team setup.

For now, Zaniolo is taking his time to evaluate all the options on the table, with the Fiorentina and Atalanta trails remaining open in the coming weeks. The €15 million price tag set by Galatasaray appears reasonable for a player of Zaniolo’s potential, and it remains to be seen which club will ultimately secure his services for the upcoming season.
