Speaking on The Last Word on Spurs YouTube channel, CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has been discussing Nicolo Zaniolo amid ongoing links to Tottenham Hotspur.

The journalist actually knows Zaniolo quite well. He says that when he used to work in Rome he lived next door to the midfielder, so, as you can imagine, he’s very much abreast of this situation.

Spurs have been linked with the Italian for quite some time now, and according to Jacobs, there is concrete substance to these rumours.

More interestingly though, the reporter states that Zaniolo would indeed be open to joining Spurs.

What’s been said?

Jacobs shared what he knows about Zaniolo.

“He’s a frightening talent. I used to work in Rome and lived next door to Zaniolo so I know him as a character a bit too,” Jacobs said.

“Roma as I understand it would reluctantly let Zaniolo leave, he’s open to a Tottenham move and he’s valued somewhere around about the €50m to €55m mark. That’s what Tottenham are looking at, it may take more with add-ons, but there is concrete substance to these links.”

Expensive

Zaniolo is a fantastic player, and if he wants to join Spurs this is one that needs exploring.

However, at north of €50m, this is going to be an expensive deal.

The Italian is at his best when he’s played as a number 10, and with Antonio Conte preferring a 3-4-3 system rather than his 3-5-2 so far at Spurs, it’s hard to see where he fits in.

There’s been some discussion about Zaniolo playing as a wing-back, but we have to feel that using him there would be a real waste of his talents.

This could be a great signing, but it’s hard to imagine Spurs going in for the midfielder at this price.
