Tottenham remain interested in signing Roma forward Nicolo Zaniolo - but only in a loan deal.
Sky Sports News has been told that Spurs want to sign the player on loan.
However, at the moment, there is little chance of the deal happening and there has been no bid to buy.
Sky Italy are reporting that Roma value Zaniolo at £35m.
Sky Sports News understands Spurs have not followed up on initial interest in Brighton forward Leandro Trossard and are now looking at other attacking options, with the club renewing a long-standing interest in Zaniolo.
Jose Mourinho's side are happy to sell Zaniolo in this window and are also prepared to do a loan deal with an obligation to buy.
Zaniolo has scored just twice in 19 games in all competitions this season.
Tottenham's interest in the Italy international comes following reports north London rivals Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Trossard.
Antonio Conte's side are yet to make a signing this January, with the club also continuing their interest in Sporting Lisbon right wing-back Pedro Porro.
Who will be on the move this winter? The January transfer window opened on Sunday January 1, 2023 and closes at 11pm on Tuesday January 31, 2023
