Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has made a transfer demand to sporting director Fabio Paratici behind the scenes, and it involves Roma starlet Nicola Zalewski.
The Lowdown: Spurs set for Serie A raid?
Paratici has already sealed deals for six major signings this summer, bringing in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet (loan) and Djed Spence. Despite that movement, though, Spurs supporters could still see more incomings this summer.
The Latest: Conte makes Zalewski demand…
Now. as per reports from Italy, Conte has made a behind-the-scenes transfer demand as he sets his sights on a swoop for Roma starlet Zalewski.
Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain are also interested in Zalewski, making an offer which has been rejected by Jose Mourinho’s side.
The Verdict: Get it done?
This move could be difficult to pull off given that Roma are apparently determined to keep the Poland international.
However, if Spurs could make the transfer a reality, he could be an exciting addition given his apparent potential and the fact that he has already amassed five senior caps at just 20 years of age.
Who should Tottenham sign after Spence?
Some in the Italian media even lavished Zalewski as the ‘discovery of the season‘ over 2021/22, perhaps explaining Conte’s huge personal interest in landing the Polish gem.
