Tottenham Hotspur given an advantage in their pursuit of Milan Skriniar

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur have been handed an advantage in their pursuit of Inter Milan’s star defender Milan Skriniar.

Six months on, it would appear Inter could be forced to sell their assets given their perilous financial condition. According to a report by Italian publication Calcio Mercato (h/t Football.london), the Nerazzurri are facing liquidity issues that could put them in jeopardy when it comes to paying the wage bill.

Inter’s cash liquidity issues could see them miss out on paying players’ salaries. With it also set to affect the payment of commissions as well as fees relating to the youth sector, chairman Steven Zhang is desperate to raise cash.

One way for him to do so is by selling players. This could help our pursuit of not just Skriniar but also Ivan Perisic.

Speaking on his future, Skriniar recently commented that he is happy at Inter and wants to stay put. However, that decision may not be up to him. (h/t Football.london)

It remains to be seen if we can prick Inter’s interest by making an offer for the 25-year-old star. The addition of Skriniar and potentially Perisic will reinforce the Spurs squad in key positions going into the second half of the campaign.

Given how teams around us have been struggling, Spurs have an excellent chance to invest and consolidate a position at the top.

Bringing in an experienced defender is more of a necessity than a luxury. Davinson Sanchez has fallen down the pecking order while Japhet Tanganga and Joe Rodon are relatively inexperienced at the top level. Toby Alderweireld, too, is not getting any younger.

Skriniar is yet to hit his prime and is amongst the best defenders in the Italian top flight. Playing under Jose Mourinho could be just what he needs to transcend from a good defender to a world-class one.
