Arsenal and Man Utd in Milan Skriniar transfer hunt as Mikel Arteta looks to add Inter Milan star for Prem title fight

ARSENAL and Manchester United are set to duke it out in the transfer market as Inter Milan struggle to tie down Milan Skriniar to a new deal, according to reports.

Skriniar, 27, has been a long-term transfer target for a number of top Premier League sides.

Milan Skriniar is out of contract at Inter Milan next summer

And now it finally seems the interested parties could pounce this January.

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta had claimed he was “confident” of striking a deal with the Slovakian.

However, according to 90min Inter failed to agree new terms with the defender in time for their self-imposed deadline set for November 13.

Skriniar’s contract with the Serie A giants expires next summer, meaning clubs could either make a cut-price swoop for him in January or try and sign him on a free next summer.

Every single one of the Premier League “big six” are said to be in contact with Skriniar’s agent and are asking to be kept notified over his availability.

Arsenal could be the most likely team to strike in order to consolidate their title push under Mikel Arteta – with the club currently sitting five points clear at the top of the table.

Meanwhile, Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag could ask for more reinforcements to help get the club back into the top four at the end of the season if Raphael Varane’s injury problems continue.

Chelsea have tumbled down the table thanks in part to injuries to a number of top stars mostly in defence, while Antonio Conte’s Tottenham lack the quality the Italian would like in defence.


Liverpool and Man City are already well stocked in central defence, but that has not been known to stop them before.

This being said, talks between Skriniar and Inter have not completely ceased and with him not going to the World Cup an agreement could be reached while club sides remain hopeful of their stars not getting season-ending injuries while in Qatar.
