Italian outlet CalcioMercato have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have sent representatives to Milan in order to thrash out a double deal for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar and Napoli attacker Arkadiusz Milik.
Spurs have enjoyed an excellent summer window so far, bringing in five players in the form of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Hart. But they remain in the market for a centre-back and a striker.
Sky Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims Spurs are in talks for 25-year-old Skriniar, with Inter rating the defender at a fee of £55million. Meanwhile, Alfredo Pedulla has claimed Spurs are in for Milik – after a £24million Roma move fell through.
The latest report now claims Tottenham have sent an entourage to Milan in order to secure deals for both Milik and Skriniar, though it remains to be seen if chairman Daniel Levy will be willing to spend as much as £55million on Skriniar.
TBR’s view – Skriniar and Milik would take Tottenham to next level
Indeed, Spurs have already produced an excellent summer window – but adding Milik and Skriniar to the Spurs side would see the north Londoners find the last two jigsaw pieces to a near-completed set of players.
It would more than strengthen their bid for a place in the top four. Not only that, it would give Mourinho all the tools required to shine in Europe and perhaps end their hunt for a trophy – with the Europa League. Expensive, but excellent additions.
