The defender has been on the radar of Mourinho since the Portuguese manager was the coach of Manchester United and it seems that he may finally get his man.
Although Spurs have had a fine summer transfer window, Mourinho insists that he is still looking to have a more balanced squad at the moment.
Skriniar has fallen down the pecking order at Inter Milan and he is no longer a regular starter for Antonio Conte’s men.
The Italians still want £46m for the Slovakian, but Levy is looking to drive down that asking fee and land the centre back.
Inter Milan will likely sell because they need money to make another attempt to sign Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante.
Spurs have lost Jan Vertonghen this summer which makes their need for a new centre back even more important, but they need to also offload some of their unwanted players.
Danny Rose, Serge Aurier and Juan Foyth have all been made available for transfers this summer and the club is waiting for the right offers to sell all of them.
A centre-forward is another player that is expected to join the club before the end of this transfer window.
