Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Nicolo Zaniolo as it emerges they scouted the midfielder during Roma-Juventus.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, Tottenham sent a scout to watch Zaniolo help Roma beat Juve 2-0 at the Olimpico on Sunday evening.
Schira adds Spurs are ‘really interested’ in bringing him to North London this summer.
It comes just weeks after reports claimed Tottenham had made a €50m bid for the 19-year-old and were in talks over his signing.
Spurs could be among the busiest clubs in the transfer market, having gone two windows without adding any new faces, after they reached the Champions League Final.
