Inter Milan are reportedly struggling to negotiate with Milan Skriniar over a new contract following rumours that Tottenham were interested in signing the centre-back in January.
According to Sky Italia, the Serie A giants are yet to hear back from Skriniar in regards to their latest and final contract offer to keep the defender in Milan, with the 27-year-old’s current deal set to expire at the end of this season,
As per the report, PSG were heavily linked with Skriniar last summer with L’Equipe claiming that an offer as high as £70m was rejected for the Slovakian international. And recent reports from CalcioMercatoWeb have said Tottenham are now in the mix for the defender.
Indeed, it had been thought within the Inter camp that Skriniar would sign a new contract. However, fears are now once again growing that the former Sampdoria star will leave the San Siro in January, with interest ever-increasing for the Serie A superstar.
And this latest update could be a huge boost for Tottenham, with Antonio Conte seemingly eager to reunite with Skriniar in north London as the Italian manager looks to build a squad that could help Spurs finally end their silverware drought.
Whilst Tottenham’s defence has been solid this season, there’s no denying that adding a world-class centre-back in Skriniar would be a massive boost for the north London side. And the defender’s ever-changing contract situation could give Conte a free shot at landing the Slovak in January.

Skriniar’s situation at Inter seems to be changing every single day, and ahead of the January transfer window, a potential bargain could be in the making if the defender ultimately refuses to reject a new deal with the Nerazzurri, and Tottenham should be keeping an eye on the centre-back at all times.
After all, Skriniar is one of the best in the world in his position, and news that the defender wants to leave the San Siro could send the transfer market into overdrive, one that Tottenham should be leading if they’re to make a big statement in the January window.
