Speaking on the Talking Transfers Podcast, Graeme Bailey has been discussing Nicolo Zaniolo amid continued links to Tottenham Hotspur.

The north London side are apparently very keen on the Italian, and interestingly, there are plans in place at Roma to use the midfielder as a wing-back.

Indeed, Jose Mourinho is apparently keen to use Zaniolo as a wing-back, and while it’s unknown whether or not Antonio Conte has the same idea in mind, it’s certainly something worth thinking about after this update.

What’s been said?

Bailey spoke about Zaniolo.

“We think that Tottenham re still in the running for Zaniolo don’t we Graeme? And although he’s not a traditional wing-back so to speak, there is optimism that he can play that role and there is optimism he can play that role as well as in the midfield,” The podcast’s host said.

“Yeah, I don’t know Roma too well, but I was told that was where Jose is going to play him this year, so suddenly that makes a lot of sense that they’d be looking at him, He’s a terrific player, could you imagine him and Perisic on either side how good that would be?” Bailey said.

Great signing

Zaniolo would be a fantastic signing for Tottenham.

Not only is the Italian a fantastic player who has been shining in Serie A for some time now, he’s also a very versatile player who would fit brilliantly into Antonio Conte’s system.

If he can play as a wing-back, he’d have a natural place in the 3-4-3 on the right, while his ability as an attacking midfielder would also give Conte the chance to use a 3-5-2 on occasion.

Spurs should be all over this signing if they have the money.
