Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Inter Milan will sell rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Milan Skriniar in the January transfer window if their asking price is met.
Skriniar was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham during the previous transfer window, with Football.London’s Alasdair Gold revealing that he was Jose Mourinho’s top defensive target.
It looked at one point as if the deal was extremely close, with Tottenham’s technical performance director Steve Hitchen even being spotted in Italy with Skriniar’s agent (Gianluca Di Marzio).
However, the move failed to materialise before the European transfer deadline, with Tottenham snapping up Joe Rodon from Swansea City instead.
Rodon has made a promising start to life in North London and reports indicate that Mourinho has been left extremely impressed by the Welshman (The Daily Mail).
So it remains to be seen if Tottenham will be in the market for a central defender in January but it looks like Skriniar could be put up for sale by Inter once again.
Romano revealed in the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast that the 25-year-old is still considered surplus to requirements by Antonio Conte’s side.
He claimed that the Serie A side will sell the Slovakian international if a club is willing to pay around €50million-€60million (£44.5million – £53.4million) for his services.

I initially thought our pursuit of Skriniar was over once we snapped up Joe Rodon. However, Davinson Sanchez seems to have fallen down the pecking order and it looks like the Colombian might well be on his way out of the club in January. If that is the case, Spurs could try again to snap up Skriniar as Mourinho clearly rates the Slovakian highly.
