Tottenham to make last-ditch Skriniar transfer bid with AC Milan set to beat them to Chelsea's Rudiger

TOTTENHAM are set to launch a deadline day bid to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, according to reports.

Spurs have been chasing a new defender this summer, with the Slovakian on Jose Mourinho's radar.

The North London club had also been keeping tabs on Chelsea outcast Antonio Rudiger.

But with AC Milan having bid for the Blues defender, Tottenham are set to turn back to Skriniar, according to the Mirror.

Fulham have also been linked with a shock move for Skriniar, as exclusively revealed by SunSport.

Despite that, Spurs remains the most-likely new home for the Inter Milan ace.
