Multiple Italian outlets are now reporting that Tottenham Hotspur have made an opening offer for AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo.

Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed on his official website that after choosing to hang on to Zaniolo during the summer transfer window, Roma are now ready to cash in on the attacker.

It is alleged that Tottenham, who expressed interest in the 23-year-old in the summer, have submitted a loan offer for the player, with an option to buy, which will become an obligation if certain conditions are met.

The report adds that Roma value Zaniolo at €40m (£35m) and that West Ham United and Borussia Dortmund are also monitoring the Italy international.

Sky Sport Italia have also backed up Di Marzio’s claim about Tottenham’s offer for the Roma star, as well as the interest from the Hammers and Dortmund.

They report the same valuation for Zaniolo but also add that Spurs’ opening offer for the winger has been deemed unsatisfactory by the Giallorossi as the conditions under which the loan would become an obligation is not satisfactory for Jose Mourinho’s side.

The publication adds that Zaniolo’s representatives will continue to work over the next few days to facilitate a move away from the Italian capital for their client.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am far from surprised that Spurs seem to have reignited their interest in Zaniolo as I always suspected that Paratici and Conte will view the opportunity to sign a player of the 23-year-old quality as being too good to turn down.

Perhaps the conditions that Tottenham have proposed for the option to buy to become an obligation has to do with the attacker being match fit and available for selection for a certain number of matches. The North Londoners would not want to take a big risk, given the Roma star’s recent injury record.
