Tottenham Hotspur: Report makes Milan Skriniar claim

Tottenham Hotspur: Report makes Milan Skriniar claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per a fresh report from Italy and yet another story linking Milan Skriniar to Tottenham Hotspur, a new claim has lifted the lid on how close he actually was to leaving Inter over the summer window.

The Lowdown: Spurs in Skriniar hunt…

Tottenham’s tie to the Nerazzurri defender can be traced as far back as the summer of 2020, with Alasdair Gold revealing how Spurs chief Steve Hitchen flew to Italy in an attempt to negotiate a move.

The Slovakia international has enjoyed a fine season in Serie A since that failed switch to Tottenham and a report has now come out to explain how Spurs expected him to join in the most recent window.

The Latest: Report makes Skriniar to Spurs claim…

According to FCInternews.it, as shared by Sport Witness, there were those who ‘saw him [Skriniar] ready with a suitcase in hand’ over the summer window – with it looking likely he would leave in the source’s eyes.

As such, it is explained that both Tottenham and Paris-Saint Germain were ‘waiting with open arms’ for the 26-year-old.

However, despite Spurs seemingly believing he could join up with Nuno Espirito Santo, Skriniar opted to refuse Tottenham and PSG’s advances to remain in Serie A.

The Verdict: What could have been?

Lauded as ‘incredible‘ by ex-teammate Adam Zilak, the towering defender would have been a colossal addition for Spurs – presumably in place of Cristian Romero.

The £54 million-valued star impressed for Inter yet again over 2020/2021, averaging a cool 92.2% pass accuracy out from the back and displaying a mature head – arguably what Spurs need.

Alas, the addition of Romero, who won the Serie A MVP award last year for best defender, is a sound alternative to Skriniar.
