Spurs fans are surely excited to see what talent Daniel Levy can attract in the summer. Hopefully, they’re finally about to spend some money, and their strategy of targeting young players can bring them real success. Signing Nicolo Zaniolo would be a great first step.
The Roma attacking midfielder has played 24 times in Serie A this season, scoring four goals and making two assists at just 19-years-old. The Daily Mail claimed late last week that Spurs are keen on bringing him to London and that’s no surprise considering his potential.
If he came to North London, the competition would be fierce, with him fighting for the Christian Eriksen’s place in the side. However, it’s not an instant impact that Pochettino would be signing him for. He’s certainly one for the future and that suits the club’s project.
The Italian signed for Roma from Inter for £4.05m in the summer, but now he’s rated at £34m on Transfermarkt. That’s one way to measure how much the youngster has developed in just one season. Imagine what he could do learning his trade from Eriksen.
His signature would signal Spurs’ intent to build a team to be successful over the next 10 years and not just next season. Eriksen’s future is uncertain, but if they bring in an understudy like Zaniolo, fans should have nothing to worry about in the future.
The 19-year-old certainly has bags of potential, and that’s true throughout this upcoming Spurs side. Capturing Zaniolo would be one of their smartest signings in years and it could finally bring them some silverware.
