Tottenham Hotspur sacked José Mourinho back and replaced him with Nuno Espírito Santo in June.

The changes at the north London club didn’t have an impact on their chase for Milan Škriniar.

Spurs wanted the Inter Milan star in the last two summer windows, but failed to take him away from the San Siro.

FcInterNews say the face of this new Inter ‘certainly has the features’ of the 26-year-old. The outlet also provides a background on the clubs that showed interest in the player.

It’s claimed that a few months ago, ‘there were those’, presumably at Inter, who ‘saw him ready with a suitcase in hand’.

Tottenham were ‘waiting with open arms’ for the Slovakia international. Along with them were Paris Saint-Germain, and there was also a talk of Barcelona.

Despite all this, the centre-back decided to continue with the Italian champions, ‘with conviction and not out of obligation’.

Although Spurs were waiting for Škriniar, it’s made clear that he was not in favour of leaving Inter. Tottenham ended up signing Cristian Romero from Atalanta instead.
