Transfer News: Tottenham boss Mourinho to lead the pursuit of Milan Skriniar

According to transfer news from Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is set to spearhead the club’s pursuit of Milan Skriniar in the summer.

Tottenham were after the signing of the Slovakian defender all summer last year. However, Inter Milan’s transfer fee demands meant that the pursuit ended without the desired result for us.

Another attempt was made to recruit the 26-year-old during the January transfer window but a move failed to materialise. Indeed, a deal worth £25m was close to being agreed upon before Inter Milan pulled the plug on the deal due to his impressive form.

However, a club source has informed Football Insider that Tottenham will make a renewed attempt to secure the transfer of Skriniar this summer. And given that Inter Milan are in a difficult position financially, they could be forced into a sale at the end of the season.

To that end, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is personally set to spearhead the talks to sign the centre-back. The Portuguese tactician has good connections at Inter, having won a treble with them during his time as manager at San Siro.

Considering that the likes of Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld have underperformed this season, bolstering the centre-back unit becomes of utmost importance for Tottenham in the summer.

And someone like Skriniar, who has been playing at the highest level in Italy for a number of years now, and has been an ever-present in their title push this season, would undoubtedly be an excellent addition for us.

Hopefully, the third time will be the charm for Mourinho and Tottenham as the club looks to make another push to land the Slovakian international this summer.
