Tottenham will consider signing Milan Skriniar in January, claims Alasdair Gold
The 25-year-old Skriniar was heavily linked with a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur all summer long. It is no secret that manager Jose Mourinho was intent on bolstering the Spurs’ backline and the Slovakian international had emerged as the club’s top target. (h/t Express)
However, Inter Milan’s asking price of £54m proved to be a barrier for us, with the club deeming that valuation too high. And as a result, the club instead ended up signing Wales international defender Joe Rodon from EFL Championship side Swansea City in a deal worth £12m. (h/t Express)
Gold, however, has claimed that there is a chance that Tottenham might revisit their interest in the Inter Milan defender and assess the feasibility of a transfer.
“I think they will have a look at Skriniar in January and see what the situation is there. He was a player they really wanted and to see whether feasibly, financially it’s doable – and like I say, with the foreign player side of things, you’ve got to sort that out as well.”
Since joining Inter Milan back in 2017, Skriniar has grown into one of the most reliable centre-backs in Italy. Adding him to our ranks would no doubt bolster the depth and quality of the squad.
