Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly interested in landing Roma midfielder and Manchester United target Nicolo Zaniolo ahead of the January transfer market.
Manager Antonio Conte has been tipped to set their sights on the Serie A market for new players in the new year, and the Italian is said to be monitoring the Italian ace’s situation under head coach Jose Mourinho.
According to an Italian media outlet Calciomercato, the 22-year-old star is unhappy to have started on the bench in I Giallorossi’s last two league matches versus Venezia and Genoa and the player recently had a small ‘quarrel’ with ex-Spurs and Red Devils manager Mourinho in training.
The report goes on to say that the talented youngster is valued by the club at around €40 million (£33.6 million), a figure which the English giants would be ready to pay for him.
Spurs may, however, face stiff competition from the Old Trafford side, who Zaniolo would be keen on joining, while Roma’s league rivals Juventus have also been touted with an interest.
Nicolo who has just over two years remaining on his current deal at the Stadio Olimpico has made 84 appearances in all competitions for the Rome-based giants, scoring 15 goals and picking up eight assists.
