AS Roma (Italy) midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo (23) is in the mood to move the enemy. It is reported that he is going through the transfer process smoothly, such as agreeing personal terms with Galatasaray (Turkiye). He is well-known as an Italian ‘special talent’ whom Antonio Conte (53, Italy) wanted to sign since last year.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the 토토사이트 European football transfer market, said on social network service (SNS) on the 6th (Korean time), “Zaniolo turned on the ‘green light’ to join Galatasaray. He has already agreed to personal terms. Now the transfer fee is negotiated. There is only one thing left,” he said.
Zaniolo is a promising young midfielder in Italy. A 190 cm tall left-footed player, he has the versatility to play as a second striker, attacking midfielder, or wing forward. He’s good at keeping the ball, and he’s good at dribbling and pressing. His forward passing and powerful shooting are also his strengths. He posted 24 goals and 18 assists in 128 career games after playing for AS Roma in 2018.
Johnny Olo, who has shown his outstanding performance over the past few years and has raised his share price with his top-notch talent, has received ‘love calls’ from various clubs. In particular, there was a strong connection with Tottenham Hotspur (England) led by Conte from last year to the winter transfer market this month. However, negotiations broke down every time because they failed to narrow the gap over the transfer fee.
In the midst of this, at the end of last month, he received a transfer offer from Bournemouth (England). There was no problem with the transfer fee agreement between the clubs, but this time Zaniolo refused to negotiate. Local experts explain that he only wanted a transfer to a club participating in the European competition.
In the end, Zaniolo was in an atmosphere of remaining as the transfer market for the five major European leagues (England, Spain, Italy, Germany, and France) closed on the 1st. However, he wanted to leave when he was excluded from the project by manager Jose Mourinho (60, Portugal), and is pursuing a transfer to Galatasaray while turning his eyes to the Turkiye stage, where the transfer market is still in progress.
The key is negotiations between the clubs, and the current transfer method and transfer fee are narrowing the current gap and flowing in a positive atmosphere. Reporter Romano said, “Galatasaray will have new talks with AS Roma to sign Zaniolo. We will discuss a deal that includes it.”
