Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho wants to bolster his defence this summer and has earmarked Milan Skriniar as a potential option.
According to reports from Sport Mediaset, Spurs will have to pay a massive transfer fee, and certainly their biggest fee this summer if they are serious about signing him.
The report claims that Mourinho’s side have submitted an offer in the region of €35 million. However, Inter value the player at around €55-€60 million.
It means Spurs will have to dish out an extra €20-25m to secure his signature.
Tottenham have been extremely active in the transfer window, with Joe Hart, Matt Doherty Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Gareth Bale, and Sergio Reguilon all arriving at Spurs this summer.
Sport Mediaset also report that negotiations will resume in the coming days between the two clubs.
We'll wait and see whether the north London club can convince Inter to reduce their asking price or they manage to negotiate a structure deal involving other players as a part-exchange.
