Transfer News: Fabio Paratici could target Milan Skriniar at Tottenham Hotspur after Juventus failure

According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t The Mirror), Tottenham Hotspur director Fabio Paratici, is a long-term admirer of Milan Skriniar, and could target the Inter defender again at Tottenham.

The report mentions that Paratici tried signing Skriniar at his former club, Juventus. But that move never materialized and the Slovakian centre-back is into his 5th year after being bought from Sampdoria back in 2017.

But signing the 26-year-old would not be easy. The defender is currently content at San Siro and Inter are not as desperate for cash as they were before selling Achraf Hakimi to PSG for £51.3million.

Tottenham Hotspur could target Inter Milan defender, Milan Skriniar, who was wanted by Fabio Paratici at Juventus.

The Lilywhites, however, are not short of options in the transfer market. Jules Kounde of Sevilla and Japanese international Takehiro Taomiyasu are two names that can be brought to N17 if they fail to convince Skriniar. (h/t The Mirror)

Spurs renew Skriniar interest

Spurs can really use a new centre-back, especially with all that has transpired recently. The club already looked like they needed another dependable defender in 2020 when Jan Vertonghen departed for SL Benfica.

And now, perhaps their most trusted centre-back, Toby Alderweireld, could leave the club in the summer. According to a report by The Athletic (Subscription Required) earlier this month, the Belgian defender has stated that he wants an exit this summer.

Skriniar has established himself as one of the top defenders in Italy, if not Europe. He was a prominent figure in their Serie A success last season, which saw them win the Scudetto under Antonio Conte.

He would be an upgrade on most defenders in the Premier League and Spurs fans would be hoping that Paratici and Daniel Levy can whip their magic to somehow bring the former Zilina man to Tottenham.
