Tottenham Hotspur are the latest team to show strong interest in AS Roma starlet, Nicolo Zaniolo. The Champions League finalist reportedly sent scouts during Roma’s latest Serie A match against Juventus at Olympico.
Tottenham are keen on seeing more about the Italian international before making their decision. However, rumors claiming that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are hoping to beat other competitors and sign him.
Spurs haven’t been making much investments in their last two seasons and reportedly ready to finally splash their cash next summer. Zaniolo could be one of their main targets to give more options in that midfield area.
Roma themselves actually want to keep their prize asset, but they must finish in the top four to do it. Reports claiming that Il Giallorossi are not having the best financial situation at the moment to keep their stars.
Zaniolo himself is still waiting for further development with his current team. The young midfielder doesn’t mind staying, but is keen on having a meeting first with the Capital side before making any decision.
Tottenham won’t have it easy though as they must compete with many other teams if they’re keen on Zaniolo. There’s plenty of interest on the talented attacking midfielder, not only from Italy but also abroad.
