The chances of AC Milan signing Nicolo Zaniolo from AS Roma in January appear to be growing but Tottenham Hotspur are the favourites to sign the Italian, a report claims.
As has been reported by Sport Mediaset (via Milan News), the Rossoneri are certainly in the picture to sign Zaniolo as they are thinking of bringing him in on loan with the option to sign him in the summer.
The player is certainly on his way out of Roma as he was not involved in the 2-0 win over Spezia on Sunday. Premier League side Tottenham are following him very closely. They would like to sign him on loan with an obligatory purchase if certain conditions are met during the loan.
With €25 million being the rumoured fee from Spurs, Roma are likely to hold out for a better deal until later in the window.
A lowering of demands from Roma would certainly bring Milan into the frame more seriously.
