Report: Tottenham interested in Milan Skriniar after Bastoni blow

Tottenham are interested in Milan Skriniar, but Tuttomercatoweb reports that only an offer of £43 million could lead to the defender leaving San Siro this summer.

Inter Milan have proved to be key protagonists in Spurs’ window so far. They have already signed Ivan Perisic. Meanwhile, a deal for Alessandro Bastoni appeared to be a priority for Antonio Conte.

However, Bastoni has opted to stay at Inter. And with that, Tottenham are considering other options. One of those they are now after is Bastoni’s Inter teammate, Skriniar.

Like Bastoni, Skriniar is ready to commit his future to the Nerazzurri. In fact, Tuttomercatoweb reports that he has a new contract on the table. And the 27-year-old is ready to sign it once Inter give the deal the green light.

But it would appear that there is a chance that Skriniar could leave. Tuttomercatoweb notes that a host of Premier League sides want the Slovakia international, including Tottenham.

The report suggests that Skriniar will be going nowhere unless a club makes an offer of more than £43 million (€50 million).

Tottenham have plenty of options on their radar. Reports claimed that they are working on a deal involving Pau Torres and Giovani Lo Celso.

They have also been linked with Gleison Bremer. So Skriniar’s stance may not concern Spurs.

It would be a boost to get him in. Previous reports have suggested that he was Conte’s top target for the January transfer window.

He has been described as ‘one of the best‘ defenders in Europe previously. And his time working with Conte at Inter helped take his game to the next level.

It does appear that there are plenty of hurdles ahead however. And after Bastoni, Tottenham fans may not hold out too much hope of signing Skriniar.
