Rumoured Tottenham target Milan Skriniar has given a potential hint that he wants to stay at Inter Milan by admitting he is loving life with the Serie A giants.
The speculation linking the Slovakian international with a move to North London has remerged since Antonio Conte’s arrival at Spurs at the start of November.
The 26-year-old was a key component of Conte’s Inter Milan side who won a historic Scudetto last season, ending Juve’s dominance of the Serie A.
Skrinair has now admitted that he considers himself ‘lucky’ to play for Inter.
The centre-back told TuttoMercatoWeb: “I have been here for five years. Inter means a lot to me.
“It is an honour to wear this shirt. We are a great group; everyone has different qualities. I’m lucky to play with and not against them.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I am not convinced that Skrinair is a target for Conte as the Italian did not seem to fancy the 26-year-old in his initial days at Inter before the Slovak forced his way into the lineup.
Besides, Skriania’s best position in Conte’ back three is at the right-centre-back, a position where we have several options, particularly once Romero returns from injury.
Strengthening at left-centre-back and in the central sweeper role (where we do not have sufficient cover for Dier if Rodon leaves) would likely be a bigger priority for Conte.
