Despite another summer transfer window linked with an exit, it appears increasingly likely the long-term future of Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo will be in the Italian capital.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Roma’s senior executives met with Claudio Vigorelli, the attacker’s agent, earlier today in Milano. The meeting laid the foundations on a potential contract renewal until 2027 for the attacker after the capital club didn’t receive any transfer offers meeting their high asking price for Zaniolo.
The two sides will reportedly meet again in early September once the transfer window closes in order to hash out the details regarding a new deal.
Since scoring the lone goal in Roma’s 1-0 Conference League victory in May, Zaniolo attracted interest from several clubs both in Italy and abroad, including Juventus and Tottenham Hotspurs.
However, they couldn’t strike a deal for Zaniolo after being put-off by the Giallorossi’s €50 million asking price.
