Tottenham to sell seven players to fund a move for Milan Skriniar
It has been one of the best transfer windows in recent memory for Tottenham Hotspur. The club had already signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale. On Friday, Spurs also brought in prolific striker Carlos Vinicius on loan from SL Benfica.
Having addressed almost all key squad issues, the focus is now on bolstering the centre-back department. Tottenham were poor at the back in the last term. This coupled with the departure of Jan Vertonghen warrants the signing of a new centre-half.
Milan Skriniar has been at the top of the shopping list for Jose Mourinho & co. One of the best centre-halves in the Serie A, the 25-year-old Slovakian would be a huge statement signing for Spurs. Tottenham remain in regular contact with Inter Milan and the player himself is said to be keen on joining hands with Mourinho. (h/t Express)
And now, it is being claimed that Tottenham are ready to offload as many as seven players in a massive exodus, to clear up space in the squad and generate funds for Skriniar. (h/t Express)
Juan Foyth is the first player who could leave, with the Argentine close to joining Villarreal on loan with an option to buy. Serge Aurier, who has lost his starting berth following Doherty’s arrival, could also be shown the doors amid interest from AC Milan and AS Monaco. (h/t Express)
