Report: Zaniolo open to Spurs

Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo is reportedly warming to the idea of joining Tottenham Hotspur in part exchange for Toby Alderweireld.

Tottenham appear to have made Zaniolo their top midfield target after cooling on Dani Ceballos and Giovani Lo Celso.

Now, according to Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, the 20-year-old has taken ‘a strong liking’ to Spurs, although he will not demand a transfer ‘out of gratitude’ for Roma after they gave him his breakthrough last season.
