TuttoMercatoWeb have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur remain in pole position to sign Nicolo Zaniolo ahead of the January transfer window.

Spurs’ efforts to sign Zaniolo in the summer were rebuffed by Roma, who reportedly preferred a straight-cash deal while the North Londoners were said to be exploring a part-exchange transfer (Wettfreunde).

CMW.it reported last week that the winger could be on his way out of the Stadio Olimpico in January since he is yet to renew his contract, which runs out in the summer of 2024.

The report added that Juventus and AC Milan hold an interest in the 23-year-old, who is allegedly valued at €40m (£34.8m) by Giallorossi.

However, if TMW’s latest update is to be believed, Spurs have not given up their pursuit of Zaniolo and remain favourites for the winger’s signature ahead of the January transfer window.

The report adds that Juve have also been monitoring the Italy international’s situation for months and could look to strike a deal in January.

Amidst interest from Conte and Allegri’s men, it is asserted that Roma hope to tie the attacker down to a new deal.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Zaniolo does not sign a new contract with Roma by January, the Serie A giants likely will not be in a position to turn down decent offers for the winger. If the 23-year-old is available for around £35m, I would expect Spurs to test the waters as Paratici and Conte appear to be big admirers of the Italy international.
