Sport Italia TV journalist Gianluigi Longari has shared a teasing Tottenham Hotspur transfer update after a meeting ‘in London’ over Nicolo Zaniolo.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye Zaniolo move…
The Lilywhites have been repeatedly mentioned alongside the AS Roma star this summer as sporting director Fabio Paratici keeps chasing more new addition for the Premier League club.
Spurs head coach Antonio Conte has been well and truly backed already in the transfer market, with a host of new signings in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence all putting pen to paper.
As per reports, Zaniolo has been widely tipped to potentially follow them and become yet another Paratici capture.
The Latest: Longari shares teasing update…
Transfer reporter Longari has now shared his own news on Spurs’ chances of signing the Italy international.
Indeed, taking to social meda, the journalist claims that talks are well and truly ‘on’ after a meeting ‘in London’ between the Lilywhites and Roma director Tiago Pinto.
When asked for a Spurs update on Zaniolo, Longari explained: “Talks on with Tiago Pinto, he was in London on Thursday”
Who should Tottenham bring in next for Conte?
A world class centre-back
The Verdict: Get it done…
Reports have suggested that Roma will demand around £50m to sanction the 23-year-old’s exit to Spurs.
Given the 23-year-old’s ability, we believe that Paratici and co should at least consider an offer in and around that mark.
The numbers are an indicator of his obvious ability, and the Serie A starlet would surely be a welcome addition at N17.
