Tottenham Hotspur: Antonio Conte green-lights Milan Skriniar move -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to reports out of Spain, there has been an update on Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer plans as manager Antonio Conte eyes another one of his former stars in Milan Skriniar.

The Lowdown: Conte plotting Serie A raid?

The Italian has been linked with a plethora of his ex-big names in the last few months, not excluding marquee attacking stars Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku.

Stefan de Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic, who were also key players for his Serie A title-winning side last year, are another San Siro pair recently linked.

Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy are said to be under pressure to deliver for Conte, coming after the 52-year-old dropped another hint he could leave this week.

The Latest: Source makes Skriniar claim…

As per Spanish sources, it is now believed that Skriniar is one of ‘five signings that Conte has asked’ for at Tottenham.

The Slovakian has continued to thrive at Inter in Conte’s absence, going on to become an untouchable in Simone Inzaghi’s starting eleven, playing the second-most Serie A minutes out of any Nerazzurri player (WhoScored).

The Verdict: Get it d0ne…

The signing of Skriniar to upgrade Conte’s back-three options would undoubtedly be a statement of intent.

A composed and colossal figure at the San Siro, the 27-year-old has averaged a greater pass accuracy out from the back (93%) than any Tottenham regular and stands out as an elite, ball-playing centre-half (WhoScored).

Serie A critics have had no shortage of praise for Skriniar this season with European football expert Carlo Garganese even calling him a ‘monster‘.

ESPN and The Athletic columnist David Amoyal has also raved over the international’s ‘sensational’ performances since Spurs failed to sign him (Twitter).

Valued at around £59 million by Transfermarkt, it will cost Levy and co significant investment, but we certainly can’t imagine a better partner for Cristian Romero.
