Inter defender Milan Skriniar is receiving increasingly strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain, according to a report in the Italian media today.

FcInterNews.it revealed PSG had ordered intermediary figure Marcelo Simonian to start pursuing a deal for Skriniar, which could be made possible by Inter’s financial problems.

Skriniar is extremely happy at Inter and is not thinking about leaving in the slightest, but it isn’t out of the question that he is forced to depart so the Nerazzurri can balance their books.

The Slovakia international is one of many players at Inter who is convinced they can continue to win trophies under Antonio Conte, but he may need to consider his options if Suning are unable to guarantee an ambitious project moving forward.

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking for a reliable centre-back ahead of next season and the Ligue 1 giants would be prepared to move for Skriniar if he became available.

Skriniar was already subject to interest from PSG last summer, only for talks to fall through due to a lack of time and Inter’s inability to source a replacement.

Inter’s players are somewhat uneasy at present after club president Steven Zhang asked them to give up two months’ wages, the report added.

Suning are looking to cut costs ahead of next season and this could force them to make one or two ‘painful sales’ in the transfer window.
