Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano offers update on Tottenham’s Skriniar pursuit
Italian transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are still in talks with Inter Milan regarding Milan Skriniar.
It was reported last week that Tottenham had sent representatives to Italy to negotiate a deal for the central defender (Calcio Mercato), with reports indicating that the Slovak had already agreed on personal terms with the North Londoners (Corriere Dello Sport).
Gazzetta Dello Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness) reported last Friday that the two clubs were still some way apart in their valuation of the 25-year-old, with Skriniar already having his heart set on a move to North London.
Romano has now taken to social media to reveal that the central defender is Jose Mourinho’s number one target before the transfer window shuts on October 5.
While the journalist suggested that the deal will not be easy to complete, he made it clear that talks are still on between the two clubs.
