Nicolo Zaniolo enjoyed an impressive first season with Roma and has committed to another five years by signing a new contract.
Sought-after midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo has signed a new long-term contract with Roma.
The 20-year-old, who made a big impression in his first campaign at Stadio Olimpico, has put pen to paper on a deal through to June 2024.
He joined Roma as part of a swap deal that saw Radja Nainggolan head the opposite way to Inter last year and made 36 appearances last season, scoring six times.
Tottenham and Bayern Munich were among the clubs linked with the twice-capped Italy international, but he has committed his future to Roma.

“I would like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to tie myself even closer to these colours – it is exactly what I wanted.”
News of a new deal for Zaniolo is a major boost for Roma ahead of their Serie A opener against Genoa on August 25.
