Spurs in talks for Nicolo Zaniolo

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in Roma winger Nicolo Zaniolo but they still face opposition from Juventus. The future of the 23-year-old remains in the air this summer with some suggestion that he may remain in Rome to work with Jose Mourinho.

Tuttosport report that Spurs have added the youngster to their list of targets for this transfer window and suggest that the arrival of Paulo Dybala in the capital could limit Zaniolo’s playing time next season, prompting a sale.

New contract negotiations between Roma and the Italy international have stalled, and Juventus are reportedly keen to sign him but are a way off from Roma’s €45m valuation.

Former Juve director Fabio Paratici, now at Spurs, is a long-time admirer of Zaniolo and has been in contact with Roma over a potential move, although an official offer is yet to made.
