Italian journalist, Niccolo Ceccarini has revealed that Tottenham have made a loan offer to Inter Milan for Milan Skriniar with an obligation to buy the centre-back next summer.
Steve Hitchen was spotted in Italy with Skrniar’s agent last week amidst reports of interest from Tottenham in the Slovak (Gianluca Di Marzio).
Reports indicated that the 25-year-old was keen to join Tottenham this summer after falling down Antonio Conte’s pecking order, with the two clubs optimistic that a deal can be agreed before the transfer window shuts (Gazzetta Dello Sport via Sport Witness).
Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that talks are still on-going between Inter Milan and Spurs for Skriniar, with the two clubs still some way apart in their valuation of the central defender.
However, Piero Ausilio, the Inter Milan sporting director, also stated this week that Skriniar is not for sale, despite meetings with Tottenham being held (DASN (26/10/20) as translated by SempreInter).
Ceccarini has now taken to social media to reveal that Spurs have made a loan offer for the centre-back, with an obligation to make the deal permeant for a fee of around €40 million (£36.3m).

If the latest reports from Italy are to be believed, Inter want to cash-in on Skriniar in order to fund moves for their transfer targets. If that is the case, I am not sure why a loan with an obligation to buy Skrniar next summer will appeal to Inter, given that they seem to be in need of the money right now.
