Tottenham Hotspur: Milan Skriniar could shine for Spurs as Jan Vertonghen’s heir

Tottenham Hotspur: Milan Skriniar could shine for Spurs as Jan Vertonghen’s heir - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to an exclusive report courtesy of fcinternews.it, Inter Milan could put Tottenham target Milan Skriniar up for sale this summer as the club look to balance the books, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on the hunt for a centre-back option and potential heir to Jan Vertonghen. 

Skriniar, who impressed in flashes for the Nerazzurri last season under manager Antonio Conte, may well depart the San Siro as the Italians search for means of income.

The financial impact of the global pandemic has put many top European sides in the same boat, with revenue down and clubs losing out on money, and Inter are among those potentially plotting a summer overhaul.

Is Skriniar capable of succeeding Vertonghen?

Yes, make the deal happen Levy

Journalist Fabrizio Romano, speaking to the Last Word on Spurs podcast, confirmed that the 18-time Serie A winners are joined by the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in looking for ways to save money in this transfer window.

Consequently, Skriniar could porentially leave the San Siro, with Tottenham linked in the past to signing an ‘excellent’ man marker and a well rounded ball-playing centre-half in the Slovakian.

The 6 ft 2 colossus, who averaged an impressive 92% passing accuracy out from the back last season, could very well be Spurs’ answer to finding a centre-back before the start of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

A 31-cap international for Slovakia, the 25-year-old’s pedigree on the biggest stages is incentive alone, and his admiration for manager Jose Mourinho could theoretically be a point of attraction.

Describing Mourinho as ‘one of the best‘, it isn’t inconceivable to think Skriniar would want to play under his tutelage in one of world football’s most prestigious divisions.

Lilywhites, is there any chance that Levy makes a move for Skriniar? Join the discussion by commenting below…
