Transfer News: Arsenal plan to hijack deal for Milan Skriniar amid Tottenham Hotspur interest

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t Football. London), Arsenal plan to hijack a deal for Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 27-year-old centre-back sees his current contract expire in the summer and has gained interest from both the north London clubs and Paris Saint-Germain. Inter are hopeful that they can make the Slovakian sign a new deal with the club.

However, if that does not happen, the Gooners plan to sweep in and make a move for him. The centre-back will be free to negotiate and agree to personal terms with foreign teams from next month.

Antonio Conte is keen to add reinforcements to his defence. The Lilywhites have surprisingly conceded first in the last nine games in all competitions and this is something that has concerned both the manager and the fans.

While regular defenders like Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet and Cristian Romero have excelled, the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga have failed to gain the trust of the manager and also could not impress when given the opportunity.

Skriniar has been linked with us for some time now as Conte looks to bring in the centre-back with whom he helped the Nerazzurri win the Scudetto back in 2019. The 27-year-old has been a crucial player for the Milan-based club for some time now and has established himself as one of the best in the business.

To be able to secure his signature on a potential free deal would prove to be a bargain for Spurs. However, the Gooners have entered the fray, while PSG have made him a ‘priority’ signing for next season.

Skriniar will be an instant upgrade for our current defence. With the January transfer window less than 24 hours away, it will be wise for the north London side to step up their process and beat their rivals to his signature.
