Speaking to Football Insider, ex-Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has hinted that his former club must sign Milan Skriniar as both Inter Milan and Spurs continue negotiations, with the pundit also recently claiming that the defender would be an ‘excellent signing‘.
Reliable Sky Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed that a move for Skriniar is ‘still on’ and a final decision will be ‘made soon’, with the next 24 hours potentially crucial in chairman Daniel Levy’s bid to land Jose Mourinho some much-needed defensive backup.
Who is the more important Spurs target?
The October 5 deadline is merely days away, and if Tottenham want to secure two more deals in preparation for a heavily congested Premier League fixture calendar, they will have to conclude business fairly quickly.
Giving his take on the whispers, Robinson has waxed lyrical over the Slovakian colossus as an ideal potential addition to Mourinho’s back line, and he insists that Spurs then would look the ‘real deal’.
Lauding the 6ft 2 star as ‘top class‘ in another recent Football Insider interview, the ex-England international believes that his acquisition along with a needed back-up to star striker Harry Kane would potentially round off Spurs’ best transfer window in years.
Tottenham have already completed deals for Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon in a headline-grabbing coup, all the while managing to land Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty to plug other gaping holes in the squad (Transfermarkt).
Given that Skriniar was a huge part of Inter’s Serie A title challenge last season, featuring in 32 league games, it’s fair to say that he would likely be a stellar addition for Spurs if they can get him.
Spurs fans, is landing Skriniar more important than signing a striker? Have your say in the comments down below…
