Tottenham table mega-money contract to sign £30m player

Skriniar UEFA Nations League Slovakia

Tottenham are set to be one of the most active clubs in the transfer market during the final week of the window. 

They may have done plenty of business so far, but that isn't stopping Daniel Levy and co from chasing some more prestigious names.

Of course, they've brought Gareth Bale back to north London, a player who followed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty, Joe Hart and Sergio Reguilon through the door. 

Spurs' transfer window had been a rather tame affair before Bale and Reguilon arrived, but they look set to head back into the market again.

Jose Mourinho is still hunting for that elusive striker to play second fiddle to Harry Kane, while a defender is also required.

A number of strikers have been linked with enquiries previously made for the likes of Andrea Belotti and Habib Diallo but it's Arek Milik whose name has reappeared. 

The Pole has been offered to Spurs and it's now just up to Levy to agree the terms. Whether he does so, however, remains to be seen.

Milik has been a target for a considerable period of time, but Tottenham could now be on the verge of landing another of their number one priorities. 

That happens to be Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

Earlier in the window, it was claimed that he could be used in a swap deal to lure Tanguy Ndombele to the San Siro. That didn't go through and now Inter are simply searching for a fee. 

Levy is willing to pay £30m for the centre-back and according to fresh reports, a move is gathering pace.

Per Football Insider, a mega-money contract offer has been tabled for Skriniar as the club look to agree personal terms with the Slovakian.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

It is of utmost importance that Tottenham get a centre-back through the door before the transfer window closes. 

They are yet to keep a single clean sheet this season, even shipping goals in their two Europa League qualifying matches to date.

Spurs may not have let in a considerable haul of goals but the fact they can't keep the ball out of the back of the net should represent a worry for Jose Mourinho.

His side have conceded a considerable 59 goals in 41 matches since he took over so it's clear to see why they need added bodies in that part of the pitch.

After losing Jan Vertonghen, there is also a glaring hole in the squad to fill - particularly from a leadership point of view.

If Levy can get a deal done for around the £30m mark as he hopes, then signing Skriniar would be a no-brainer.

Unfortunately, they may have to pay a slightly larger sum. The Slovak's potential fee has previously been touted at £55m.
