Milan Skriniar has been removed from the offer of a player swap deal between Tottenham and Inter Milan, but they can offer Spurs two of his other teammates.
Skriniar had recently been linked with a move to Spurs with the reports claiming that Inter Milan is keen on signing Tanguy Ndombele and they are willing to use the defender as a sweetener in the move.
He has been in fine form since he moved to the San Siro and Jose Mourinho has been a long-term admirer.
The Portuguese boss tried to sign him when he was the manager of Manchester United, but the deal never went through and he is still interested in working with the Slovakian.
FC Internews is, however, claiming that the defender has decided against moving to Spurs, especially because they will not be playing in the Champions League.
His opting out means that Inter will have to look for another player to send to Spurs if they are still interested in a swap deal.
The same report claims that Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic are the two other players that they are willing to offer to Spurs in exchange for the Frenchman.
Ndombele only joined Spurs in the summer, but he has struggled for form and the club will want to give him another season. It remains unclear if they will accept Inter’s swap deal proposal.
