Tottenham made an unsuccessful £30m bid for Milan Skriniar last summer

According to Italian website Calciomercato.com (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur made an unsuccessful bid of £30m to land Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar last summer.

The Lilywhites were keen on bringing in a central defender and had identified the Slovakian as a top target. However, we were unable to land him after the Italians held firm on their asking price of £43m.

Spurs eventually signed Joe Rodon from Swansea City on English deadline day. While the Welshman is one to watch out for, he is not the established star who could immediately boost the Tottenham defence.

Skriniar had fallen out of favour with Antonio Conte at the San Siro last season. The situation was ideal for Spurs to make their move for the 26-year-old. In the end, we could not make the most of the opportunity and now the dynamics have changed.

The defender is back in Conte’s good books and is part of an Inter side that is on top of the Serie-A table. More so Inter now values him at an increased price of £52m. Whether Spurs will return for him next summer remains to be seen.

Tottenham’s defence has been a major worry this season, especially when we have been up against the top sides. Losses to both Liverpool and Manchester City might have been avoided had we cut down on errors at the back.

Speaking on his future, Skriniar recently commented that he is happy at Inter and wants to stay put. Whether that is still the case remains to be seen.(h/t Football.london)

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. Bringing in a defender next summer is more of a necessity rather than a luxury.
