Tottenham could miss out on a second Serie A transfer target with Inter Milan reportedly making new contact with ACF Fiorentina to sign defender Nikola Milenkovic.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Italian giants are keen on signing the Serbian international after missing out on the signing of Gleison Bremer, with the 25-year-old snubbing a move to Inter to join Juventus, yet the report also states that Milan Skriniar, another Tottenham target, is set to remain at the San Siro.

Reports emerged this week that Skriniar’s €70m (£60m) move to PSG was on the verge of collapse, with Inter set to offer the defender a new contract in what could be a huge blow for Tottenham, who Fabio Paratici was interested in signing for the north London side, and now, the Italian giants want Milenkovic.

The Fiorentina star had been viewed by many as a replacement for Skriniar, however, it now appears that Inter want to sign Milenkovic regardless of if their star defender leaves this summer, with Tottenham now set to miss out on two centre-back targets in the span of a week.

Indeed, Tottenham have only signed one centre-back this summer in the form of Clement Lenglet on loan, yet another defender on a permanent deal could have been perfect for Antonio Conte, who could do with fleshing out that area of his squad ahead of the new season.

And Milenkovic could have been perfect, with the defender an experience Serie A superstar who could have left Fiorentina for cheap given that his contract expires next year, yet it now looks like Inter will once again ruin Tottenham’s dreams of a centre-back signing.

Inter might have missed out on Bremer, but the Italian giants being in a situation where they could now keep Skriniar and sign Milenkovic is something not many fans would have predicted, and it arguably puts them in a better position had they landed the Torino superstar and sold their star Slovakian defender to PSG.

Indeed, the moves this week have been huge blows for Tottenham, who were also linked with Bremer, with the north London side going from being linked to three top centre-backs to now landing none of them, with Inter now running all the way to the bank with Milenkovic.
