Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites still eyeing Milan Skriniar -Tottenham Hotspur News

According to a report from Italian outlet Quotidiano Nazionale (via Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur continue to show an interest in signing Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar. 

The lowdown: Regular links

The 27-year-old has been perennially linked with a move to Spurs and speculation has only intensified since the arrival of Antonio Conte to the Lilywhites hot seat.

The Italian manager has been touted with a raid on a number of his ex-Serie A title-winning stars, including Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku.

Now, as Conte and Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici prepare to delve into the summer transfer window, Skriniar is once again seemingly on the agenda.

The latest: Spurs ‘follow’ star

As per Quotidiano Nazionale, as translated by SW, Tottenham are attentive to the Slovakian defender’s contract situation.

Entering the final 12 months of a deal at the San Siro (Transfermarkt), the report claims that the north London club continue to ‘follow’ the 48-cap ace.

It’s stated that the Nerazzurri ‘want to avoid nasty surprises’ in the upcoming window and as such will look to tie down the defender who made 81 appearances during Conte’s time in Milan.

The verdict: Statement signing

Signing the man valued at £58.8million (Transfermarkt) would be a huge capture for Tottenham as Paratici looks to put his stamp on the squad in terms of recruitment.

Partnering Skriniar alongside Cristian Romero and Eric Dier would provide Spurs with a solid platform from which to build, something that hasn’t always been evident this season, shipping 37 goals from 30 Premier League fixtures so far.

Citing a failed attempt from Spurs to land the powerful defender, The Athletic columnist David Amoyal raved over the Slovakian’s ‘sensational’ early season performances, with an average match rating of 7.09/10 helping to keep ten clean sheets.
