Spurs target Zaniolo rejects Bournemouth

Nicolo Zaniolo has turned down a move to Bournemouth, reports Sky in Italy, leaving the player's parent club Roma "furious".

Bournemouth representatives travelled to the Italian capital by private jet to try and convince him to join the Cherries, but were already conscious of his desire to continue playing European football.

Zaniolo has rejected the offer, which would have included a significant pay rise.

Roma are said to be furious about it and reserve the right to implement disciplinary measures against him.

Zaniolo has been a target for both Tottenham and AC Milan this month, with the two sides set to face each other in the Champions League last 16.

Spurs want to sign Zaniolo on loan, while Sky in Italy understands AC Milan have asked for 24 hours to discuss whether they can raise their offer for Zaniolo beyond £17.6m towards the £26.4m Roma are asking for.Zaniolo, who was dropped from the Roma squad at the weekend, has scored twice in 19 games in all competitions this season.
