Tottenham Hotspur are reported to have begun talks with Inter Milan over a deal for Milan Skriniar, according to respected football journalist Fabrizio Romano.

It had been previously claimed in July that Tottenham were in talks with the Serie A giants about a possible swap deal involving Tanguy Ndombele and Skriniar (Guardian).

Ndombele experienced a tough first season in North London following his club record £45million move from Lyon having only started twelve Premier League matches in a season marred by injuries and a lack of form.

The Spurs midfielder was singled out for praise by Jose Mourinho after scoring the match winner in last week’s 2-1 Europa League second round qualifier victory against Lokomotiv Plovdiv (talkSPORT).

Romano claims that a swap deal involving Ndombele is no longer on the table with Inter looking to receive €60million for the central defender which is likely to pose a problem for Tottenham in their negotiations.

  1. If it is a case of a dodgy half injured striker, and a lesser centre back OR paying extra to get this guy Skriniar… I’ve seen him play.. get him, even if it means we have to forgo a backup striker for Harry. He is solid granite. Nothing gets through him.
