According to CalcioMercato, Chelsea and Inter Milan are scheduled to meet to discuss a potential transfer for Tottenham-linked center-back Milan Skriniar.
Japhet Tanganga and Joe Rodon may both be leaving the club, according to recent reports, therefore Spurs may want to add a right-sided center-back before the transfer window shuts (Football london).
Last week, Il Messaggero stated that Antonio Conte’s team will be joining Paris Saint-Germain in the battle for Skriniar, who Inter was reportedly prepared to sell.
After missing out on Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, CaclioMercato has now stated that Chelsea is poised to enter the fight for the Slovak.

Spurs are not included in the article, which claims Thomas Tuchel’s team is competing with PSG for the Inter star.
According to the report, Skriniar is valued at €50 million (£41.9 million) by Inter and PSG, which is less than the €70 million (£58.7 million) Nerazzurri had offered for him.
In the event that both Tanganga and Rodon depart this summer, I do anticipate Spurs to sign a right-sided center-back. However, considering that we are effectively simply looking for a backup for Cristian Romero, I do not see us spending more than £50 million on a defender like Skriniar.
