Disappointment for Tottenham Hotspur

Zaniolo is one of the best and most promising young attacking players in Europe, and there is no surprise that Tottenham reportedly want him.

With Christian Eriksen having left Spurs in the January transfer window, Jose Mourinho’s side could do with a creative player with vision in attack.

However, Roma’s reported stance of not selling the 21-year-old means that Spurs are set to face disappointment in their quest to secure his services this summer.
