Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Liverpool in their pursuit of Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar

Tottenham Hotspur

couldn't strike a deal with the Italian club for

Milan Skriniar

over the summer.

The Premier League champions are short on options at centre-back after Virgil van Dijk had a serious knee injury that will keep him out for most of the season.

Fabinho emerged as a capable stand-in before picking up an injury of his own, leaving the Reds short on options in the heart of defence.

The Merseyside outfit are now considering a January bid for Inter defender

Skriniar

, a target of

Spurs

.

The London club tried to sign the Slovakian in the off-season but failed to strike a deal with the Serie A side for his transfer, as Inter denied to lower their €60m transfer fee.

Jose Mourinho is still interested in signing

Skriniar

, either in January or at the end of the season, but Liverpool could move to the front of the queue as they look to quickly solve their defensive crisis.

The 25-year-old has been at Inter for three years, but has only featured twice this season after missing much of the action following a positive Covid-19 result.
