Inter have identified three potential replacements for Milan Skriniar according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
Skriniar is currently subject to serious interest from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, whose technical director Steve Hitchen met with his agents yesterday as well as Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio.
It is only a matter of time until the Spurs make an official offer for the Slovakian, who has already consented to a move to north London. Inter want €50 million for him whilst Spurs are willing to offer €40 million.
When it comes to replacements, Inter have identified Schalke’s Ozan Kabak, Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, and Manchester United’s Chris Smalling.
The chances of Kabak being the chosen one to replace Skriniar are growing but he will come far from cheap with Schalke said to value him at €40 million, although the report states that the price could drop a lot given Schalke’s financial situation.
Milenkovic also has a €40 million pricetag whilst Smalling would cost half of that amount to sign.
