Roma Set Considerable Price Tag for Coveted Starlet

Nicolò Zaniolo will be in high demand this summer unless Roma manage to extend his contract relatively early. He is tied to the club until 2024. The player is not pushing to depart, but he wishes to get a new deal and larger wages.

According to Radio Radio, several teams inquired about the starlet, but just one put forward an official offer. It was an unnamed Premier League team. The Giallorossi quickly rebuffed it because they deemed it too low. They will listen to the proposal while they negotiate with the forward. They demand at least €50M to part ways with him. He would not reject a move to a destination he likes. Tottenham were previously rumored to be among his suitors.

Instead, Juventus have been after Zaniolo for a while, and they will intensify their pressure on Roma after the Coppa Italia final, TuttoSport informs. The Bianconeri have done extensive work on Angel Di Maria and Giacomo Raspadori as well. They could bring in multiple attackers since they might have further departures up front beside Paulo Dybala. Moise Kean and especially Alvaro Morata might not be on the roster next season either. The starlet would fit their transfer market strategy.

According to AS, Roma have laid their eyes on Colon attacker Facundo Farias, who could be a potential heir to Zaniolo. The 19-year-old has already featured in 64 matches, tallying 10 goals and 7 assists. Moreover, they are on the verge of coming to terms with Felix Afena-Gyan on a new contract, Il Tempo reports.
