But the agent of the midfielder, Claudio Vigorelli, insisted there were no current offers on the table.
As quoted by Calciomercato, Vigorelli said: “To date, as far as we are concerned, no negotiations are underway with any international or Italian club.”
Zaniolo has only just turned 20 but has impressed since joining from Inter Milan last year for £4m.
He has been the subject of interest for Juventus and European champions Liverpool as well, but Vigorelli suggested a move was unlikely.
He said: “We have heard a lot about Zaniolo, Roma and his contract in recent weeks.
“Given the media attention to which Nicolo was subjected at national and international level, it is important to make some clarifications.
“Nicolo is a heritage of Roma who believed in his talent first and foremost.
