Tottenham Hotspur are preparing a £40million offer for Roma starlet Nicola Zaniolo, according to reports in the Italian media.

Wednesday’s edition of Turin newspaper Tuttosport featured the story

Tottenham are expected to be active in this summer’s transfer window and the striker would certainly help to relieve Harry Kane and Heung-min Son of the goalscoring burden in North London.


Zaniolo’s efforts for Roma have been rewarded recently with his first senior cap for Italy in the 2-0 win against Finland.

He made 33 appearances for the Giallorossi this season and found the back of the net six times.

Vincent Janssen’s future at Spurs continues to be in doubt despite being recalled to the first time fold earlier this year, the Dutchman has been offered back to Fenerbahce where he spent the 2017/18 season on loan according to the Turkish news outlet Sabah.
