Tottenham Hotspur: Transfer target Nicolo Zaniolo unhappy at Roma

Tottenham Hotspur: Transfer target Nicolo Zaniolo unhappy at Roma -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report from Football Italia, Tottenham Hotspur could be among the possible destinations for AS Roma attacking midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo. 

The lowdown: Mercurial talent

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence in Italy and is already a fully-fledged senior international.

Back when he was a teenager, Zaniolo was lauded for ‘incredible’ physical attributes following a 2-1 victory over FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League by none other than club legend Daniele De Rossi.

On that night, the cultured midfielder put on a masterclass in the Stadio Olimpico, earning an 8.98 rating for a display containing two goals, two tackles and one interception (Whoscored).

The latest: Zaniolo ‘unhappy’

As per various Italian sources (via Football Italia) Zaniolo is believed to have been left ‘unhappy’ having been excluded from the recent Rome derby clash with Lazio. That snub has led the eight-cap star to ‘consider his future’ at the Serie A club.

This is apparently not the only time this month he has been left ’embittered’ by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, who also chose not to start the youngster when Roma played in his hometown against Spezia.

The report claims that either Spurs or Juventus could be the benefactors of any falling out as both remain attentive to the talented forward.

In fact, it’s stated that Fabio Paratici is a ‘huge admirer’ of the former Inter Milan youngster having attempted to take the starlet to Turin previously.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

The latest: An expensive luxury?

Despite struggling with regular injury woes, this season the Italian youngster has scored four times and provided eight assists in 33 appearances across all competitions.

Predominantly a right-winger but capable of interchanging with various roles in the attack, the young dynamo has even been compared to Spurs favourite Paul Gascoigne by agent Claudio Vigorelli for his similar ‘physical qualities’, and would likely act as direct competition to January signing Dejan Kulusevski.

Valued at £29.70million and under contract in Italy until 2024 (Transfermarkt), signing Zaniolo would be an expensive venture for the summer transfer window, but he would add a brilliant fourth option behind Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Kulusevski.
