Tottenham Hotspur have submitted an opening offer for Nicolò Zaniolo, however, it was rejected by Roma.
The Italian club could lose the 23-year-old following the arrival of Paulo Dybala.
Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici both want to bring the midfielder to north London.
Spurs make Zaniolo offer
According to CalcioMercato.it, Spurs’ offer was £25 million plus Joe Rodon.
Jose Mourinho’s team informed them that they will only accept just cash and no counterparts.
The north London club are looking for a new attacking midfielder.
Zaniolo and James Maddison are two players that Tottenham have on their list of targets.
The Roma midfielder made 42 appearances in all competitions last season.
He managed 8 goals and 9 assists helping Roma to a 6th place finish in Serie A and to be crowned winners of the Europa Conference League.
However, the 23-year-old has already suffered two ACL injuries during his short career, which could be a cause for concern.
New Spurs numbers revealed
Ivan Perisic will take the number 14 shirt replacing Joe Rodon who switches to number 22.
The Croatian also wore the 14 shirt for Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.
Clement Lenglet makes the strange call of going for number 34.
Meanwhile, the club’s latest arrival Djed Spence has been allocated the number 24.
