Tottenham boss Antonio Conte 'crazy' for Roma youngster as he makes Fabio Paratici request

Fabio Paratici has reportedly been sent to Italy to tie up a deal for Roma star Nicola Zalewski. The winger is next on Antonio Conte’s shopping list of targets as he bids to overhaul his Tottenham squad ahead of his first full season in charge.

Conte and sporting director Paratici have already made six signings as they attempt to transform Spurs int trophy contenders. And the Spurs boss is now thought to have set his sights on Zalewski, who has starred for Roma since breaking into the senior set-up last season.

According to Calciomercato, Conte is ‘literally crazy’ for the wonderkid, who became a starter under Jose Mourinho last term. He was part of the team that won the Europa Conference League, Roma’s first piece of silverware for 14 years.

Conte is hoping he can also end Tottenham’s trophy drought, with Paratici this week flying out to Italy for talks over the future of numerous players. One of those was Zalewski, who Conte is said to have ‘fallen in love’ with following his performances under Mourinho.
