Spurs handed boost in £17m pursuit

Nicolo Zaniolo has no intention of signing a new contract at AS Roma amid interest from Tottenham, according to TuttoMercatoWeb. The 22-year-old’s contract with the Italian giants is set to expire in 2024.

The report claims that Jose Mourinho’s side have placed a price tag of £42 million on the midfielder ahead of a potential exit in the summer. CalcioMercato and Fichajes have credited Antonio Conte’s side with interest in Zaniolo ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

He’s impressed this season for Roma, directly contributing towards 15 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions. The £16.8m-rated target, as valued by CIES Football Observatory, has been crucial to Mourinho’s success this season, welding a strong relationship with former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
