Tottenham is also rumored to be interested in signing the Slovakian international, although PSG’s attempt to recruit Inter Milan striker Milan Skriniar has apparently run into trouble. Despite PSG’s confidence in closing a deal to capture Skriniar, Gazzetta dello Sport reports that talks between the two European heavyweights have reportedly stalled. Inter is rumored to have increased their asking price for the defender from €60 million to €70 million (£50 million to £60 million). According to the article, PSG believed internally that a contract to sign Skrinar might be reached within the next few days. This idea, however, has since been disproved by Inter’s aggressive negotiating tactics with regard to their star defender, who Tottenham is also interested in signing this summer. According to reports, the north London club is reportedly interested in the Serie A team. Fabio Paratici, the Italian sporting director, is a major fan of the defender and has unsuccessfully tried to sign Skriniar to north London twice in the past two transfer windows. £50m star declines Spurs, now agrees to move to European heavyweights for £115k weekly Skriniar won’t be available to Tottenham as PSG closes a deal with Inter While Tottenham may still be unsuccessful in their pursuit of Skriniar this summer, this significant development from PSG may give Paratici the push he needs to pursue the Serie A superstar from Inter for a third time. Skriniar would be a fantastic addition to Antonio Conte’s team. Skriniar would be an exciting and more long-term option for the north London team, and this news from Paris may be just what Spurs needed to complete the transfer. The Tottenham boss has already signed Clement Lenglet on loan from FC Barcelona. Spurs should attempt to sign Skriniar before PSG.

For the longest time, PSG appeared to be Skriniar’s destination, but after this most recent development, things could be very different, and Tottenham should be looking to seize the opportunity. Skriniar looks set to leave Inter this summer with the Italian giants eager to balance their books and secure one big transfer out of the club. Skriniar has worked with Conte throughout their 2021 Serie A championship season, and Daniel Levy has demonstrated this summer that he is willing to support the Italian manager ahead of an exciting year for the north London team. Skriniar may be the Premier League club’s final brilliant acquisition.
