According to a report by Tuttomercatoweb, via Sport Witness, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could be open to discussing a Tanguy Ndombele swap deal for Inter Milan colossus Milan Skriniar, despite claims from Fabrizio Romano that a transfer of that nature is off the table.
Skriniar, who was a mainstay for the Serie A giants last season during their ultimately unsuccessful title challenge, still proved to be a crucial figure in Antonio Conte’s quest to land a coveted domestic crown and break Juventus’ monopoly in the competition.
The Slovakian, averaging a 92% passing success rate out from the back over 2019/20, exemplified a cool head in the centre of defence – something that manager Jose Mourinho reportedly desires ahead of a gruelling and congested new Premier League season.
Should Spurs swap Ndombele for Skriniar?
100%, not a debate
No, Ndombele has bags of potential
Standing at a lofty 6 ft 2, Skriniar also possesses the desired physical attributes, but Inter currently value his services at around £54.7m if a deal is to be done.
Romano reports that Spurs will not go that high, and as a result, Tuttomercatoweb claim that an Ndombele swap deal could be on the cards again in line with previous rumours.
The £98,000-a-week colossus is a wanted man at Tottenham, and despite Ndombele having the potential to be a ‘nightmare‘ force for Spurs, the Italian news outlet are now hinting that Levy is open to offloading him if it results in a cut-price deal for Skriniar.
Of course, given that Levy will need to search for any possible way around paying the defender’s sky-high valuation, especially after a plethora of summer deals, offloading his 23-year-old club record signing to get it done would certainly be a statement of intent.
Spurs fans, should Levy offer Ndombele in a swap deal to lower his asking price? Have your say in the comments below…
