According to Tuttomercatoweb, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move for 26-year-old ace defender Milan Skriniar. With new manager Antonio Conte at the helm, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in reuniting the Slovakian defender with the Italian boss. It is believed that the Inter Milan star defender is one of Conte’s priorities when the transfer window opens.
Milan Skriniar Inter Milan’s Star Defender
Milan Skriniar, who is at the club since 2017, is an undisputable starter for the side and one of Milan’s key players. His performance last season was key to Inter Milan winning the Serie A after 11 years under manager Antonio Conte. Skriniar has started the new season on a good note but Inter Milan have struggled to keep up with the expectations built upon last season after dropping points in 5 games out of 12 in the league.
The Slovakian defender is also a great header of the ball and can also score a few goals for his sdie. With his contract expiring in 2023 it is possible that we can see a reunion of Skriniar and Conte in the Premier League this time.
Should Spurs Go Ahead And Sign The Defender?
Antonio Conte is known to have a solid defence in all of his clubs so far and hence it is expected from him to tighten the Tottenham Hotspur defence which has been leaky the whole season. The signing of Christian Romero will be of massive help but Conte would like another centre half to partner him and form a solid base at the back to build on.
With Conte on board, Spurs will be much more confident to sign the defender this time around after some failed attempts previously. Without any doubt, Milan Skriniar will add a huge quality to that backline. He is strong in the air, pacy and most importantly reads the game very well. His partnership with Conte has already been a huge success last year and if the Italian boss is planning to bring back silverware at the London club the signing of this ace defender will be a massive boost. Skriniar is also considered a leader at the back and the experience he will bring to the club will be of no match.
