Bournemouth open talks to sign Spurs-linked Roma star – will face competition from AC Milan

Posted by

Bournemouth have emerged as unlikely candidates in the race to sign AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Cherries are preparing a bid of around €30 million to try and prise him away from Italy. However, AC Milan are also in the race and have already discussed personal terms with the player’s camp.

The 23-year-old has asked Jose Mourinho and the Roma board to oversee his departure in this transfer window, which they have obliged to do should a suitable offer be sent their way.

Tottenham Hotspur threw their names into the mix but were only willing to take Zaniolo on a loan deal until the end of the season, whereas the Serie A side are seeking a transfer fee for the player to leave permanently.

Bournemouth have now spotted their opportunity to offer Roma a fee close to what they want and secure the Italy international.
