According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter Milan are working to tie-down Milan Skriniar to a new contract amidst interest from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur.

Skriniar has had another exceptional season at the San Siro but his current contract with Inter only runs until the summer of 2023 (Transfermakrt).

Gazzetta claim the centre-back’s performances this season have attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs including Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester United.

It is explained that Antonio Conte ‘dreams’ of taking Skriniar to North London while Chelsea have identified him as a replacement for Antonio Rudiger.

Inter are allegedly keen to hang on to the 27-year-old, with Simone Inzaghi valuing his versatility and seeing him as one of the leaders of the dressing room.

The Nerazzurri hierarchy are said to be ‘in a hurry’ to tie Skriniar down to a new contract to ward off interest from the Premier League.

The Serie A giants have reportedly readied a new contract worth €4.5m (£3.8m) per year, which is expected to rise to €5m (£4.2m) over the coming years.
