With Roma currently facing a financial crisis as they failed to have qualified for the Champions League throughout the past three seasons, the Giallorossi will most likely be forced to offload one of their stars in order generate revenue to cover the debts.
According to Corriere dello Sport, I Partenopei are assessing the situation with extreme detail as Spaletti is eager to improve his offence in preparation for next year’s up-coming Serie A season.
With talks to extend the 22 year-old’s stay at the Stadio Olimpico past 2024 put currently on hold, it seems very likely that the Giallorossi will decide to sell the promising winger during the summer. However, Roma will place a lucrative price-tag of €50-€70 in order to lure the up-and-coming star from the capital.
So far this season, Zaniolo faced a series of injuries, causing him an immense amount of difficulty to find his footing on the pitch. As a result, the attacking-minded star has only managed to score two goals and provide two assists in 23 games played for Mourinho’s side within the Serie A.
Despite his inconsistent form, Napoli view Zaniolo as a vital asset ahead of next season that can play a pivotal role in supplying goals within the final third throughout the long-term future of the club.
Napoli find themseves facing a great deal of competition in obtaining the rising star’s signature as Serie A giants Juventus are also keen on bringing Zaniolo to Turin in order to fill the void within their front-line, following the departure of the Swedish international Dejan Kulusevski to Tottenham.
