Tottenham have ‘begun talks’ for Inter’s Milan Skriniar

Alasdair Gold of football.london has, on Wednesday, provided some insight into Tottenham’s transfer plans for the remainder of the current window.

Tottenham eyeing Skriniar

Spurs have, of course, already signed a quartet of players during the delayed summer window.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was first through the door, with Matt Doherty having followed shortly after.

The Lilywhites were then able to pry Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale away from Real Madrid, though the latter has only joined on loan.

With Spurs having already brought in four players, many no doubt predicted a quiet close to the window for the usually cash-shy Londoners.

However, if the aforementioned report from Alasdair Gold is to be believed, then Jose Mourinho could well welcome another few players to the club over the course of the coming weeks.

One area in which Tottenham are aiming to strengthen is centre-back, with Gold having confirmed on Wednesday that the Lilywhites have opened talks to sign Inter Milan star Milan Skriniar.

The stopper was linked with a move to north London earlier in the window, as part of a potential swap deal involving Tanguy Ndombele.

But Gold claims that Inter are now demanding around £50m for the Slovakian, a sum which Spurs are, unsurprisingly, said to be unwilling to pay.

Tottenham cool interest in Milik

South Korean Kim Min-jae is another centre-back option believed to have been considered by Spurs, though Beijing Guoan are said to be keen to hold onto the 23-year-old.

As well as defensive reinforcements, Spurs are also reported to be eyeing up fresh blood in attack.

As we have previously covered, Tottenham have been linked with all of Callum Wilson, Bast Dost, Andrea Belotti and Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik in recent months.

However, according to Gold, Tottenham’s interest in Milik has now cooled, with Spurs’ links to Wout Weghorst and Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard also believed to be wide of the mark:
