Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed a phenomenal transfer window thus far but there’s one signing that could round off Jose Mourinho’s plans.
Spurs have taken a look at Inter Milan colossus Milan Skriniar for several weeks now, but according to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, the two clubs are far apart in their valuation of the Slovakian who would be keen on a move to the Premier League.
The 25-year-old started against Lazio over the weekend but never say never. It’s no secret that Mourinho is desperate for a new centre-back, so if Daniel Levy does manage to pull off one final masterclass, then here’s how the north Londoners could look when full strength.
There may be some surprises…
Skriniar could take up a place front and centre in a back three as Mourinho opts for a 3-5-2 system.
This will make the most of three of the club’s other summer signings with Sergio Reguillon at left wing-back, Matt Doherty on the other side and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg playing as an anchorman, which will allow the aforementioned duo to bomb on without much worry.
Mourinho’s current first-choice duo of Eric Dier and the £42m one-time record signing Davinson Sanchez could take up a place either side of the potential final addition.
It could also open the door for both Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele to form a creative partnership slightly ahead of the Danish powerhouse.
Whilst Heung-min Son and Harry Kane continue their lucrative and prolific relationship up top – the former has scored six and assisted one whilst the English talisman has contributed to nine of their 12 Premier League goals, per WhoScored.
Unfortunately, Gareth Bale may find it hard to start with Spurs in red-hot form right now. There’s no place for Dele Alli either, he’s been linked with an exit.
Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko may also find it difficult to get the nod if everything comes together by the end of the day.
