According to TuttoASRoma, Jose Mourinho would be willing to take Oliver Skipp and Sergio Reguilon at Roma in exchange for Nicolo Zaniolo.

Reports over recent days have suggested that Tottenham are determined to snap up Zaniolo and are not willing to give up on their pursuit of the winger (90 min).

However, multiple publications including CalcioMercato and IlRomanista have claimed this week that Mourinho does not wish to let the 23-year-old leave the club.

TuttoASRoma have now stated that the ‘only real offer’ for Zaniolo so far this summer has come from Spurs, who have bid €40m (£33.5m) for the player thought to be valued by Roma at €50m (£41.8m).

It is revealed that Fabio Paratici has also offered Japhet Tanganga and Tanguy Ndombele to the Giallorossi in exchange for the Italy international and while Mourinho likes Tanganga, he is not enthusiastic about the prospect of reuniting with Ndombele.

The former Spurs boss would allegedly prefer to take Skipp and Reguilon to the Stadio Olimpico in exchange for Zaniolo.

Tutto AS Roma add that as things stand, the winger is expected to stay at Roma despite Paulo Dybala’s arrival, with Mourinho planning to use him on the right-wing during the upcoming campaign.

Spurs Web Opinion

Part-exchange deals hardly ever materialise as it is harder for clubs to agree on valuations of multiple players than it is for them to do so on one player. 

I do expect Spurs to test Roma’s resolve with an offer for Zaniolo over the coming weeks but it remains to be seen if the Serie A club would be willing to cash in on the 23-year-old.
