Tottenham Hotspur are still leading the race to land Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, according to reports from Italy.
Reports previously indicated that Jose Mourinho was a big fan of the Slovakian international and was keen to bring him to North London (FC Inter News).
The report claims that the Ndombele-Skriniar swap deal remains a possibility as it would benefit both clubs economically.
Meanwhile, TuttoMercatoWeb also state that Spurs are keeping the negotiations alive and have not given up hope of signing Skriniar.
They suggest that Conte will not persuade the 25-year-old to stay at Inter amid Tottenham’s interest.
Spurs Web Opinion
Most Spurs fans still seem to hold hope that Ndombele will come good but I would jump at the chance to swap him for Skriniar. I do not doubt that the Frenchman will go on to become a top midfielder but the 25-year-old will make us a much better outfit defensively. If we land Skriniar, I would expect us to quite comfortably finish in the top four next season.
