Tottenham Hotspur ‘accelerate’ to sign AS Roma star Nicolò Zaniolo in the current window, according to ASRomaLive.

At the start of this summer, the winger was expected to make a switch to Juventus, but the Turin club haven’t been able to advance.


Antonio Conte and Spurs chief Fabio Paratici are ‘well-known admirers’ of the 23-year-old and they could be his backers to arrive in the English capital.

The north London club are currently in the evaluation phase and in the next three or four days, they will decide whether or not to make an offer for the player.

Meanwhile, José Mourinho appreciates the profiles of Japhet Tanganga, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso. Tottenham’s interest in Zaniolo does not exclude the ‘possible birth of separate negotiations’ with Roma involving some of their own players.

Roma chief Tiago Pinto will only sell Zaniolo outright for an offer of €50m or through a loan with an obligation to buy. The report states Tottenham ‘have now accepted’ the conditions set by the Giallorossi to sign the attacker.

If ASRomaLive’s report is to be believed, there should be more clarity on this case in the next four days.
