According to a report by the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to offload both Juan Foyth and Ryan Sessegnon as the club and Daniel Levy pursue Milan Skriniar, with the Lilywhites duo chosen to make way as negotiations continue to unfold.
Indeed, the Inter Milan star is apparently top of Jose Mourinho’s wish list as Spurs continue their desperate bid to sign a much-needed centre-back, but Mirror journalist John Cross reported that both clubs are still miles apart in terms of valuation.
Should Spurs offload both Sessegnon and Foyth for Skriniar?
Yes please, no brainer
The Serie A giants value Skriniar at around £50m and Levy is apparently unwilling to go that high, with recent reports claiming that Spurs are even considering the possibility of swapping Tanguy Ndombele in an effort to lower the price (TUTTOmercatoWEB via Sport Witness).
Cross has now claimed that the two clubs are still some way off completing a deal, as supported by Sky Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who claims that a decision will be ‘made soon‘.
In an effort to recuperate funds and invest in a potential deal for the Slovakian colossus, it appears that both Foyth and Sessegnon could be sacrificed (the latter on loan) to make space, as per this latest update.
The Athletic journalist David Ornstein recently hinted that Tottenham need to sell before they can buy again, with Serge Aurier, Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga being other names on the chopping block.
Lauded as ‘incredible‘, the 31-cap Slovakia international certainly has a few admirers and could be worth the investment, especially considering that Spurs let club legend Jan Vertonghen leave on a free transfer with no adequate replacement.
Lilywhites, would Skriniar be Tottenham’s best signing of the transfer window? Have your say in the comments down below…
