Tottenham ‘want Roma star Nicola Zalewski transfer but ex-Spurs boss Jose Mourinho set to play hardball over wing-back’


TOTTENHAM are reportedly interested in Roma wing-back Nicola Zalewski. Spurs boss Antonio Conte wants to strengthen their wide options by bringing in the hotly-tipped prospect, according to Calciomercato.

The rookie is starting to attract interest after sting of good displays in Serie A since breaking through last season.

His form with Jose Mourinho’s side has also earned him seven caps with Poland since making his international debut last year.

Calciomercato say Conte has had his eye on him for “some time”.

Nicola age and versatility are thought to have made him an attractive option for a number of suitors.

The 20-year-old is comfortable at full-back, wing-back and in midfield – and has played on the left and the right side of the pitch.

His stock is likely to only rise further after his expected selection for the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

A good run out with the Robert Lewandowski-inspired dark horses could make him a very valuable asset come January.

But the Paris Saint-Germain magician failed to make the shortlist this time around, courtesy of an underwhelming debut season in France.

And so did Brazilian superstar Neymar who wasn’t afraid to hit out at his critics.

However, there are still a whole host of names in the 30-man list worthy of being crowned with such an honourable prize.

Former Inter Milan boss Conte knows the Italian market well and feels Zalewski can add much-needed competition and cover on his wings for the likes of Ryan Sessegnon and Emerson Royal.

But the North London club may face competition for his signature with French giants Paris Saint-Germain also said to be interested.

And they could also be up against a reluctance to sell the starlet from their former boss Mourinho.

Calciomercato say the Special One is not keen to lose the Pole as the Italian giants realise “they have something precious on their hands.”
