Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is said to be wanted by Roma, with Mauricio Pochettino wanting Nicolo Zaniolo.
Tottenham Hotspur fans do not appear keen on the idea of giving up Toby Alderweireld for Nicolo Zaniolo.
There has now been suggestions that Tottenham may be willing to offer a trade deal in a bid to sign the Italian midfielder.
But Tottenham fans are against the idea of parting company with Alderweireld.

25 million buyout clause and the idea they’ll throw a young talent in as collateral is hilarious…..who made this one up— David bird (@bird96calamity) July 2, 2019

I would prefer to keep Toby, but if he wants to go, happy to sell him to a lesser club in return for a good player and some money— Oliver Collings (@oliver_collings) July 2, 2019
Personally, I would rather we keep Toby at all costs and move for Giovani Lo Celso if we lose Christian Eriksen.— Daily Hotspur (@Daily_Hotspur) July 2, 2019

we should be focusing on a right back, our central defence is fine
No no no— Hols (@HollieAgombar) July 2, 2019
Spurs are in a bit of a dilemma with Alderweireld due to his contractual situation.
The Belgian defender has just a year left on his deal with Spurs and has a £25 million release clause built into his contract.
Alderweireld has hinted that he wants to stay with Tottenham, but that means they could risk losing him on a free.
If Zaniolo does join Spurs he would help to strengthen a midfield which is already looking much better, with Tanguy Ndombele set to arrive very soon, as the Guardian have reported.
