Nicolò Zaniolo’s agent Claudio Vigorelli has reportedly asked for a meeting with Roma CEO Guido Fienga, in search of clarity after Paulo Fonseca’s comments.
The attacking midfielder is one of the most valuable players at the Olimpico and was criticised by the Portuguese coach after a 2-1 win against Hellas Verona.
The coach has since claimed there’s ‘no problem’ between the two, but Il Corriere dello Sport claims that the player’s agent has asked for a meeting with the hierarchy.
The Roman newspaper has claimed a meeting next week has been set up for the Italy international to understand if there’s a project for him with the Giallorossi.
The report claims the representatives of the youngster, who has attracted interest from abroad this season, will ask the club to protect him better in the future.
Juventus have been linked with Zaniolo too, but don’t seem to be ready to meet Roma’s requests.
The imminent meeting between the agent and Fienga will give them a possibility to address the incident after the match against Verona and the young talent is expected to ask for guarantees from the club going forward.
Zaniolo, who underwent surgery in January for a torn ACL, has worked his way back to the pitch and is expected to fight for a place in the Italy squad ahead of Euro 2020 next summer.
