Fulham want Skriniar reports Daily Mail. The newly-promoted Premier League side are a defensive disaster considering their performance this season. Furthermore, the once top-flight regulars are at a high risk of going back down to the Championship. Thus, the club is in the hunt for a new reliable centre-back and the English media believes it can well be Milan Skriniar.
The 25-year-old Slovak international is easily among the best centre-backs in the world right now. His ball-playing abilities and precise passing are traits clubs die for to have in a centre-back. Unfortunately for the Nerazzurri club, Skriniar struggles to play in a back-three. And Conte clearly wants a rock-solid defence to win the Scudetto this season. Milan Skriniar is wanted by a whole host of clubs in Europe. Moreover, PSG want him to replace Thiago Silva, Spurs want him as Mourinho admires him a lot and then there’s Fulham.
Skriniar will want to play under Mourinho as he admires him. But, Spurs are not willing to pay the €50M Inter want for the player. Furthermore, PSG want a loan deal to try him out first. Fulham, on the other hand, can pay the €50M upfront if they want according to Daily Mail.
Fulham want Skriniar, but does the Slovak wanna go there?
Even if Fulham can pay the fee by considerably doubling their record signing, will they be able to afford his wages? Moreover, will a 25-year-old Skriniar even want to go to a relegation struck club? It’s highly unlikely that any of that happens. Skriniar struggles at Inter but he’s still very reliable when Conte fields him. And with Tottenham’s initial offer rejected, Skriniar will most likely stay at the Nerazzurri club. Yes, Fulham want Skriniar, but it’s a little too much to ask for from a club at the bottom of the Premier League.
