The market value of the Roma midfielder has dramatically increased in the past year. Zaniolo leads a group of Italian talents ready to blossom and benefit their clubs and the Italian national team. 

The financial aspects are increasingly important in the world of football and albeit some don’t like to talk about numbers but only about tactics, clubs analyze their accounts daily to create a sustainable and winning business.

Since the arrival of the American investor Jim Pallotta, Roma is implementing meticulous financial strategies to improve on a structural level. The constant injection of fresh and talented young forces seems to be one of the most profitable methods to create a solid and brilliant future.

Nicolò Zaniolo joined Roma last summer. The Italian midfielder was included in a very profitable deal that brought Radja Nainggolan to Inter. Although the Belgian star was one of the fans’ heroes, we can definitely say that Roma made a good purchase.

According to data collected from the famous portal, Nicolò Zaniolo leads a group of top Italian talents who dramatically increased their value having played a great season. Taking into consideration the biggest improvements in the market value of Italian players since July 1, 2018, the Roma offensive midfielder tops the ranking ahead of Juventus‘ Moise Kean and Atalanta‘s Gianluca Mancini.

If we add Brescia‘s Sandro Tonali to this list, he is fourth in this ranking, it’s interesting to highlight that two of the three players mentioned are chased by Roma. Reportedly, the Giallorossi want to keep Zaniolo albeit the 19-year-old is on the agenda of several football powerhouses with Juventus leading the race.

Last winter we talked insistently about Mancini’s possible arrival in the eternal city and a deal could be finalized after July 1st. Tonali, instead, would be the perfect addition to the Roma midfield, especially after De Rossi‘s departure.
