Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of the north London club making a potential transfer move for Inter defender Milan Skriniar in the upcoming January transfer window. 

This comes after the journalist recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he spoke about a number of topics concerning Jose Mourinho’s side.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

On the topic of the upcoming January window and the potential business Spurs could do in it, Gold had this to say on a possible move for Skriniar, who the club were previously linked with in the summer.

He said: “There’s no indication whatsoever, that Inter Milan have dropped down from their £45-50 million price tag. Spurs, at the time, never wanted to go over £32 million and he’s playing regularly.

“I think he tested positive for [the virus] so was out for a couple of weeks, but other than that, he’s pretty much started every single match this season for Inter Milan, so you’re not talking about a player who is on the fringes, isn’t playing, they just want to get him off the books – it’s not that case.”

The 25-year-old defender, who is currently valued at £45 million, joined Inter back in the 2017 summer transfer window from Sampdoria for a fee of £30.6 million.

Since then, the defender has made 135 appearances for Inter in which he has managed to score four goals and provide four assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Do you think Spurs need to sign Skriniar in January?

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Skriniar…

As Gold mentioned in his video, Skriniar has played in five out of nine Serie A games for Inter so far this season, missing three in October due to the current global pandemic, this shows that he is an important figure for the Italian side and could make a potential deal for the defender quite difficult for Spurs to make in January.

Also, with Spurs having not managed to concede a goal in their three previous Premier League games, this suggests that they may not necessarily need to sign a defender in January anyway.
