Roma general manager Tiago Pinto has admitted that star midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo could leave the Stadio Olimpico this summer, with Juventus and Tottenham both retaining an interest.
Zaniolo’s current contract with the Giallorossi expires in the summer of 2024, and Pinto revealed earlier this week that he ‘can’t guarantee’ the Italy international will stick around until then.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus and Spurs are keeping tabs on the situation, with the Bianconeri potentially lining up a part-exchange deal for Zaniolo.
It’s reported that Juve could offer Moise Kean or Weston McKennie as a makeweight for the 22-year-old, who is rated highly in Turin.
Tottenham managing director of football Fabio Paratici is a long-term admirer of Zaniolo and had been keen on signing him when he was at Juventus prior to his first ACL injury in 2020.
After missing the entire 2020/21 season, Zaniolo has made 26 appearances for Roma this campaign, scoring four goals.
Meanwhile, 90min understands that Spurs are among a number of clubs who have been offered the chance to sign current Juventus forward Paulo Dybala when his contract expires in the summer.
The Argentina international is not expected to sign a new deal with Juve, and has been offered to the Premier League’s ‘big six’ clubs, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter.
