Tottenham are pushing Inter Milan to drop their price for Milan Skriniar.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has watched the 25-year-old for a number of years and is a big fan of the Slovakian defender.
Skriniar is keen on a move to the Premier League, and would be interested in linking up with Tottenham.
But Inter are demanding a hefty fee for one of their prize assets, money which Mourinho is not prepared to pay.
Spurs would be willing to fork-out between £25m and £30m for the centre-back, with discussions set to continue through the weekend.
It is understood Skriniar's agent is in Milan, and is holding talks with Inter over the ex-Sampdoria star's future and plans to move away.
