Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy planning Milan Skriniar summer talks - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur and their chairman Daniel Levy are planning to open talks for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar this summer, coming after a deal was ‘very close‘ to happening in January.

Skriniar has excelled again for the Nerazzurri this season, starting 23 Serie A matches so far and averaging an impressive 91.7% pass accuracy from the back (WhoScored).

Can you name all 10 of these obscure Tottenham signings? Let's get started! Who is this?

Tottenham planning Skriniar talks

Jose Mourinho is said to be a big admirer of the Slovakian international, coming after chief scout Steve Hitchen flew to Italy for transfer talks last summer (football.london).

Tottenham’s interest in signing the 26-year-old last summer is well-known, with reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold even saying the defender was ‘very keen‘ to join the club in 2020 (football.london).

Football Insider have now claimed that Spurs have reignited their interest and Levy is planning to open talks for Skriniar in the next transfer window. They added that the Lilywhites made a January attempt, with the agreement being ‘very close’ at one stage.

Transfer Tavern take

Jose Mourinho’s top priority is said to be recruiting a centre-half, and Inter’s financial situation could open the door for Spurs to land Skriniar this summer. Standing at a towering 1.88m (6 ft 2), the colossus has maintained his brilliant form which attracted Spurs last year.

Adam Zilak, a former teammate of the international defender, recently hailed Skriniar as an ‘incredible defender’ (La Gazzetta dello Sport), leaving little wonder as to why Levy and co wish to open talks again this summer.
