Tottenham are reportedly in talks with Inter Milan over a deal with defender Milan Skriniar – but transfer fees appear to be a major stumbling block.
Both clubs are said to be stuck in discussions but are miles apart in their ratings.
Inter reportedly want around £ 55million (€ 60million) for Skriniar, but Tottenham value the 25-year-old at around half.
Tutto Mercato Web claim that Spurs president Daniel Levy does not want to pay such a high fee for the center-back.
He is said to think the Defender would not give them a financial return in the future and would be in favor of a swap deal.
Tanguy Ndombele has been mentioned as a possible candidate to travel to San Siro with the Serie A club linked to him in the past.
