Report: Madrid want Zaniolo

Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on Roma and Italy starlet Nicolo Zaniolo.

According to AS, Eder Militao was not the only Porto player Madrid scouts looked at during Roma’s extra-time defeat in Porto last week as they ‘also took notes’ on Zaniolo.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a breakout campaign for the Giallorossi this season, scoring four goals in 26 appearances since arriving as part of the deal that took Radja Nainggolan to Inter.

The newspaper explains they see him as a striker and could go back in with an offer this summer after sporting director Monchi - who left the Lupi a week ago - ‘blocked’ an approach in January.
