Tottenham still in talks to sign Milan Skriniar claims Fabrizio Romano

According to reputed journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur are still locked in negotiations with Inter Milan over a deal to sign defender Milan Skriniar.

The 25-year-old centre-back is one of the most solid and reliable defenders in Italy. The Slovakian international has been a regular in the starting XI for Inter Milan since joining in 2017.

However, he has dropped down the pecking order in recent months under Antonio Conte. And Tottenham are reported to be strongly interested in signing the 25-year-old.

Given our shaky performances at the back last season, it makes total sense that the club is eyeing defensive reinforcements. And Skriniar would prove to be a brilliant acquisition for the club, given his age and proven pedigree at the highest level.

Talks over a move had been going on for a while, with Technical Director Steve Hitchen flying out to Milan to try and trash out a deal. However, there was little progress made on the front, leading to speculations that Spurs were calling off their pursuit of the 25-year-old.

At the same time, reports emerged that the club were eyeing a move for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger before the deadline day.

However, as per Romano’s latest update, Skriniar remains Tottenham’s No. 1 priority for defensive reinforcements and the club remain in talks with Inter Milan. But, the Italians are holding out for a fee of €60m [add-ons included].

Romano further adds that Rudiger, at this point, is only a Plan B for Spurs. However, a deal for Skriniar is complicated given the fee demands. With not much time left in the transfer window, the club needs to act swiftly and strike an agreement.
