The 27-year-old Slovakian defender has established himself as one of the best defenders in European football, and it is hardly surprising that the Blues are keen on securing his services.
Chelsea have lost a key defender in Antonio Rudiger this summer, and Thomas Tuchel will have to find a quality alternative. Andreas Christensen has also left the club on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old Slovakian international could prove to be an excellent acquisition for the Blues, and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can agree on a fee now.
Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move to Inter Milan in recent weeks, and the Blues could look to orchestrate a swap deal involving the two players.
However, Skriniar is a key player for the Italian club, and it is highly unlikely that Inter Milan will want to let him leave anytime soon.
Having said that, the opportunity to showcase his potential in the Premier League could be a tempting proposition for the Slovakian defender, and Chelsea have the financial resources to offer him a lucrative deal as well.
The Blues have already made an inquiry regarding the 27-year-old’s availability, and it’ll be interesting to see how things unfold over the next few weeks.
Chelsea have been linked with Jules Kounde as well.
