Spurs reignite their interest in Milan Skriniar

Tottenham Hotspur appear to have re-entered the race to sign Milan Skriniar this summer…

What’s the word?

According to reports in Italy (as relayed by Sport Witness), Inter Milan would let the centre-back leave the San Siro for the right price amid interest from Spurs and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

The 27-year-old centre-back has long been linked with a move to north London, even before Antonio Conte’s arrival in the dugout back in November.

It’s thought that €65m (£55m) would be enough to entice the Serie A giants into a sale.

Should Spurs finally sign Milan Skriniar?

Yes, 100%!

Yes, 100%!

No way!

No way!

So with Inter open to a sale, Spurs have been given a green light to make their move.

Another big coup

Lilywhites sporting director Fabio Paratici has already sealed six new signings at Hotspur Way but this move has the potential to eclipse the lot.

No one knows the Slovakia titan better than Conte as he featured in 32 matches on their way to the Scudetto in 2020/21, where he also scored three goals, as per Transfermarkt.

Since then, he has continued to thrive in the Italian top flight.

FBref compare his statistical profile to that of Antonio Rudiger and John Stones, which only bolsters his potential fit for Premier League football as both have proven themselves in England.

The same website also reveals that Skriniar ranks inside the top 4% of centre-backs across Europe for passing accuracy (93.2%), the top 7% for non-penalty expected goals and assists (0.11 per 90), and the top 14% for shot-creating actions (0.93 per 90), proving to be adept with the ball at his feet.

Described as a “leader” by his former youth coach Tibor Goljan, the Inter colossus could fill a void in Spurs’ backline, with Clement Lenglet unlikely to step up as that sort of powerful figure.

Eurosport journalist Siavoush Fallahi has also dubbed him a “monster“, whilst the 27-year-old has also received further praise from former teammate Adam Zilak.

“Milan combines physicality and footballing intelligence, this is what makes him an incredible defender,” he said.

Okay, we'll start with an easy one... How much did Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg cost last summer?

If Paratici were to finally land the Slovakia international, then it would be quite a coup indeed and on the above evidence, it could well be their best piece of business yet.

A backline of Skriniar, Cristian Romero and Eric Dier is pretty mouthwatering, so it’s time to splash the cash on him before deadline day on September 1st, now that Inter are willing to sell.
