Milan Škriniar, the Slovakian international joined the Italian giants, Inter Milan from Sampdoria in 2017 and penned a deal of five years. Across the three seasons at the club, he has made 128 appearances. He managed to net 4 goals.
He is a strong tackler who is quick to make clearances and a centre-back of his stature would be a crucial addition to the Spurs squad, should the deal is closed.
It has been reported that the Slovakian defender is interesting to join the Premier League side if both the clubs agree on the transfer switch.
Spurs currently stand at sixth position on the Premier League table, the place they finished in the previous season.
They recently defeated KF Shkendija 3-1 in the Europa League Third-qualifying round. Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane were the contributors to the scoresheet. Spurs are set to face Newcastle United in the weekend clash on Sunday.
Spurs have spent £50 million in this summer transfer window. They already have five defenders, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Juan Foyth, and Japhet Tanganga in their team.
Jose Mourinho is looking to increase the defensive options in the squad. He has already acquired the signing of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid and Sergio Reguillon from Sevilla. Now, he is looking to secure the deal and add Milan Škriniar to his acquisition list.
