Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

After sealing a top-four Premier League finish, the pressure is on Paratici to deliver in the summer market and appease Conte – but it’s safe to say he’s made a brilliant start.

The signings of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma are tipped to be followed by yet more additions with Sky Italy journalist Mangiante now giving an update on Zaniolo.

The Latest: Spurs make move…

Indeed, according to his information, Tottenham’s scattergun approach to the market appears to have taken another turn.

The reporter claims ‘first contact’ has now been made for Zaniolo as Paratici and Roma sporting director Tiago Pinto hold discussions.

In terms of advancements or an official bid, nothing has been disclosed as of yet, but it appears the north Londoners are now weighing a move.

The Verdict: Ambitious move…

The 22-year-old, tipped for stardom in Serie A over the last few seasons, has recently re-discovered his undoubted talent under Jose Mourinho.

Finishing 21/22 as one of Roma’s most threatening players, Zaniolo completed more successful take-ons per 90 than any of his teammates whilst attracting the most fouls – proving to be a real nightmare for opponents (WhoScored).

On top of this, the 6 foot 2 midfielder averaged their third-highest rate of attempts at goal last season – potentially motivating his side to slap an €80 million (£69m) price tag on his head.

It’s also little wonder members of the Italian media have deemed Zaniolo a ‘star’ across the continent (Kaustubh Pandey, GIFN).

Paratici, however, may have to pull out all the stops going by his reputation and value.
