BETFAIR have installed Tottenham as favourites to sign Milan Skriniar in January.
The Inter Milan centre-back has been linked with several European heavyweights over the past 12 months.

But it’s Jose Mourinho’s side at the front of the queue, according to the bookies.
Spurs have been priced at 5/2 to collect his signature during the January transfer window.
The north London club are the Premier League leaders and could look to add reinforcements in the winter.
They are closely pursued by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
The Citizens paid a combined £101m for defensive duo Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake over the summer.

But Betfair still think they provide the closest competition for Tottenham.
The Slovakia international was expected to join Jose over the summer to replace Benfica-bound Jan Vertonghen.
The Portuguese tactician eventually opted for Swansea’s Joe Rodon instead.
But recent reports claim Mourinho hasn’t forgotten about Skriniar.
And could look to the 25-year-old in January as doubts remain over futures of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Inter wouldn’t hesitate to sell providing the player’s £45m price tag was met.
He told the Here We Go Podcast: “Milan Skriniar’s situation hasn’t changed.
“Inter Milan needs money. If Spurs arrive tomorrow morning with £45m, Inter will sell him.
“[The deal for Skiniar] is up to Tottenham now.”
