Tuttosport have claimed that Inter Milan could now sell Tottenham target Milan Skriniar for a cut-price deal in January as talks over a new deal with the centre-back have not gone according to plan so far.

With Skriniar’s current contract at the San Siro running out next summer (Transfermarkt), the centre-back has been mooted as a target for the likes of Tottenham (FCInterNews), Manchester City, Chelsea (The Sun), and Barcelona (Mundo Deportivo) over recent weeks.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said last week that Inter will offer a salary of around €6m-€6.5m (£5.2m-£5.7m) per year to the 27-year-old, which is alleged to be lower than what Paris Saint-Germain were willing to offer in the summer (Sempre Inter).

If TuttoSport’s latest update is to be believed, the Nerazzurri’s talks with Skriniar over a new deal have not been productive so far.

The report states that Inter are worried about losing the Slovak for free in the summer, and are thus considering selling him in January. 

It is explained that PSG could rekindle their interest in Skriniar and that Simone Inzaghi’s men could sell the defender to the Ligue 1 giants for a fee of around €20m-€25m (£17.3-£21.6m) when the transfer window reopens.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that we need to upgrade on Davinson Sanchez as I do not think the Colombian is good enough to even be a backup, if we are to have aspirations of competing with the best teams in the Premier League.

However, I think the club will likely wait until next summer to do so. I do not think a central defender will be a priority for the North Londoners in January, even if Japhet Tanganga is loaned out.
