PSG have reportedly agreed on a deal to sign Milan Skriniar this summer, handing a blow to Chelsea and Tottenham.

The Premier League duo were hoping to sign the centre-back to strengthen their backlines.

But PSG have jumped to the front of the queue as they continued their interest in him from the summer.

The Ligue 1 giants have agreed to sign him in the summer after his contract expires at Inter Milan, according to L’Equipe.

The report also suggests the Slovak could make the move this month if PSG pays the Serie A side between £13-£8million.

This could interest Inter as it would mean they would get some cash for one of their top players rather than see him walk out of the door for nothing at the end of the season.

Spurs would have been hoping that the Slovakian international could have improved their backline.

Manager Antonio Conte signed Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet on loan last summer as a temporary solution while a long-term fix was identified.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have been spending continuously since the take over by Todd Boehly.

This month the Blues signed AS Monaco defender Benoît Badiashile to bolster their defence.


However, with Wesley Fofana’s injury problems and Thiago Silva not getting any younger, Skriniar would have been a good option.

The fact that he would have been available on a free transfer would have appealed to the club after the near £500million spend since last summer.
