The father of Nicolo Zaniolo says Roma have assured the playmaker that he is key to their plans going forward.

The 19-year-old’s future at Stadio Olimpico has been widely speculated with the likes of Tottenham and Juventus monitoring his situation.

Despite interest from elsewhere, his father Igor claims he is likely to stay put with Roma for at least one more season.

However, that may depend on whether his contract demands are met when the two parties scheduled for talks over the coming weeks.

‘Soon there will be a meeting for a new contract,’ Igor Zaniolo told Italian daily Corriere dello Sport.

‘The Roma hierarchy have assured that he will be the first step of their new course.’
