23-year-old wants Tottenham move, rejects approach from Premier League club

Posted by

Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo has been linked with a move to England this month.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Bournemouth are trying to sign the player and the club’s board decided to travel to Rome in order to discuss a potential transfer with the 23-year-old midfielder.

However, the Italian international midfielder has turned down the opportunity to join the Cherries and he is holding out for a move to Tottenham Hotspur or AC Milan.

Apparently, the player has no intention to join Bournemouth despite the fact that the Italian club is ready to approve a €30 million transfer.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham come forward with an offer for the 23-year-old in the coming days.

Antonio Conte could certainly use more creativity in the final third and Zaniolo would be a superb long-term edition.

The 23-year-old can operate as a central attacking midfielder as well as a winger. His versatility will be an added bonus for the London club.

The likes of Harry Kane will certainly benefit from the Italian’s arrival and he will help carve out opportunities for his teammates.

The Tottenham striker has had to drop deep in order to create opportunities for himself and his teammates time and again this season and bringing in a technically gifted playmaker will help Tottenham open up the deep defenses.

It will be interesting to see how the situation develops and whether Spurs are prepared to sign the player before the January window closes.
