Tottenham Opinion: Spurs should maximize their efforts to sign Zaniolo and here is why
The Italian youngster, who recently took part in U-21, is also on the radar of fellow Serie A club Juventus. Zaniolo has a contract with Roma till 2023. In fact, the North London outfit are ready to offer Toby Alderweireld in exchange for the Italian midfielder (h/t Independent).
Zaniolo – a sprouting playmaker
The 20-year-old broke into the limelight when he signed for Inter Milan in 2017, later making a great impact with the reserves side.
During his first debut season at Roma, Zaniolo fared well even with the limited opportunities.
The former Fiorentina man racked up 6 goals and 2 assists in all competitions, including a stunning brace against FC Porto in the Champions League. In addition, he appeared as a substitute on 8 occasions.
Being a natural attacking midfielder, Zaniolo can also play in deeper roles as well as on the right-wing.
Why Spurs should chase Zaniolo?
Elsewhere at North London, Pochettino appears to be hectic in the current transfer window as he has already made two prolific signings, which has put an end to the long-running drought in transfer windows.
On the other end, Christian Eriksen’s future remains uncertain. The Danish man has provided the Argentine manager with enough meat and substance and it would be slightly difficult to cope without the former Ajax man in the future.
Given that, Spurs can opt for the services of Zaniolo, who is poised for greatness and has already shown everyone a glimpse of his class.
Statistically, the Italian prodigy needs to work on certain things like sticking to the ball and he would be improved in no time at a club like Spurs and under the guidance of a manager like Pochettino, who has earned the reputation for nurturing young talents.

Meanwhile, Zaniolo possesses great attributes that need to be savoured, especially his dribbling abilities and playmaking skills.
Spurs have captured some promising names like Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele, showing us it is always better late than never.
Before getting carried away by the efforts they have put on signing the aforementioned stars, the North London side should consider Zaniolo as the next one to add to their dossier.
