Tottenham Hotspur: Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar on Spurs radar as talks begin

Tottenham Hotspur: Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar on Spurs radar as talks begin - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to an update by reliable Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Tottenham have opened talks to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar as the club eye a new central defender – but the Serie A giants have placed a whopping £55 million price tag on his head. 

Indeed, as per recent reports, Spurs are after two new signings before the transfer window closes on October 5 – with a striker and centre-back being prioritised by Daniel Levy and co as the 2020/2021 Premier League seasons gets underway.

Milan Skriniar, yes or no Spurs fans?

Yes, 100%, next level

Club legend and fan favourite Jan Vertonghen left Spurs on a free transfer this summer and signed for Benfica, with Tottenham being left short in the middle as a result – having to deploy midfielder Eric Dier in the Belgian’s stead.

The ever-rotating pair of Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld alongside the Englishman don’t appear to satisfy manager Jose Mourinho as he eyes Champions League qualification, resulting in the club turning to a potential solution in the market.

Enter Skriniar, who was once at the centre of whispers linking him with a move to Spurs in a potential Tanguy Ndombele swap deal.

A transfer of that nature, however, has since been ruled out – with Tottenham now working to lower the Slovakian’s £55m valuation in a straight bid.

Where did Mauricio Pochettino complete his playing career?

Averaging a 92% pass accuracy out from the back last campaign, Skriniar also stands at a towering 6ft 2.

The defender’s exploits in Serie A have even warranted praise from ex-Nerazzurri captain Giuseppe Bergomi, who lauded him as ‘incredible‘ alongside Joao Miranda back in 2017.

If Tottenham do manage to get a deal done, it’s safe to say that Levy will have pulled off another brilliant summer coup.
