Transfer News: Tottenham to reignite their interest in Milan Skriniar
According to transfer news from Express, Tottenham could reignite their interest in Milan Skriniar. The 26-year-old was a top target for Tottenham Hotspur all through the summer last year. However, a move failed to materialise owing to the Slovakian international’s price tag.
Since then, the centre-back has gone on to enjoy a stunning season, helping Inter Milan to their first Serie A title in over ten years. However, there are fears that there could be an exodus of players from the Italian champions due to financial issues, something which led to manager Antonio Conte quitting.
Spurs are claimed to be in the market for two new centre-backs. Toby Alderweireld, at 32, is not getting any younger while Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez are nearly not consistent enough to be trusted week in week out. Joe Rodon has shown glimpses of promise but is largely inexperienced at the highest level.
To that end, signing someone like Skriniar, who has years of experience at this level and is coming on the back of an excellent, title-winning campaign, would certainly be a great move for Tottenham Hotspur. Now, it has been reported that Spurs are ready to revisit their interest in Skriniar.

Let’s not forget that Spurs are also after Antonio Conte. The Italian worked with Skriniar for the two seasons he was at the club. Reports have claimed that Conte is close to taking up the managerial vacancy at Spurs. Nonetheless, it wouldn’t be totally surprising if Spurs want to reunite the pair at the club.
