Tottenham 'launch Nicolo Zaniolo loan transfer offer with obligation to buy' but face competition from Prem rivals | The Sun
19th January 2023

TOTTENHAM are interested in signing Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo on loan with an obligation to buy, reports suggest.

However, Spurs will be facing competition from Premier League rivals West Ham as well as Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

That is according to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who reports that the Giallorossi are open to selling the playmaker in the January transfer window.

The Italy international has just 18 months left in his contract and Roma chiefs have debated about whether to extend his deal.

The North Londoners' managing director Fabio Paratici has proposed a loan deal with an obligation to buy as long as certain terms are met.

West Ham are also eyeing the Italian after finding themselves in a relegation battle in the Premier League.

And Dortmund are still looking to bolster their attack after losing star striker Erling Haaland to Manchester City last summer.

However, Roma have slapped a €40million (£35m) release clause and won't accept any offers below €35m (£31m).

In fact, Jose Mourinho's side are already monitoring potential replacements in case Zaniolo leaves mid-season.
