Inter have lined up a move for Firoentina defender Nikola Milenkovic so as to avoid being caught unprepared if Milan Skriniar leaves this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri have begun the process of trying to sign Milenkovic to replace Skriniar in case the 27-year-old is sold amid links to Paris Saint-Germain.

Inter are preparing for the possibility that Skriniar could be the big name sacrificed this summer with PSG ratcheting up the pressure to try and sign the Slovak defender.

The Nerazzurri do not want to have a deal done to sell Skriniar without the process of bringing in his replacement being straightforward, and so they are moving to sign Milenkovic.

Inter’s pursuit of the 24-year-old is linked to whether or not Skriniar is sold this summer, as they are determined not to sell Skriniar and then be left looking for a replacement.
