As far as i remember, Marotta takes into account the will of the player. So, if Skriniar wants to stay, i don't think that Marotta will push him out. Other option is if his agent tries to lure him with more money.

Surely you aren't serious. We just pushed out 2 players last summer against their will. I'm sure others (like Asamoah) will be "pushed" out as well this summer.

The whole "will of the player" only applies to people we want to keep, but they want to go.

Lol. If you mean Icardi and Perisic (or 9N), that is totaly irrelevant comparison.

ideal is a defense that gets the best out of skriniar, bastoni and de vrij. 2 out of 3 isnt shabby tbh.
I don't think we can challenge the best in Europe if we play with 2 best out of three regularly. On some occasions, maybe, but not regularly. We need to have the best player for every position we can possibly have.

We need more quality in the midfield. If I know Conte well, he has already begun harassing Marotta for another midfielder, and with good reason.

I'm fine replacing Škriniar with Kumbulla, I think the later the Albanian has a higher ceiling.

On the other hand I'm definitely not OK exchanging him with Ndombele who is very talented but have very serious fitness issues. I would put Škriniar at €70M and I wouldn't pay more than €40M for Ndombele so this exchange doesn't make sense.

Sqnalkel, have you taken any drugs this morning? First Barella and now you're fine with replacing Skriniar.

Ndombele is a huge risk tbh, with Spurs' valuation. They probably value him at least 60m€, same as what they paid. Failed with Mourinho big time, and Conte is similar level of demanded when it comes to work rate. Maybe he can get the beast of of Ndombele?

Ndombele rumour and Conte outburst last night has got me thinking. A question for those who follow EPL closely. How was the relationship between Ndombele and Pochettino? Was the Frenchman a choice of Levy or Pochettino?

Ndombele has talent no doubting that and he has shown flashes of that this year at Spurs. I would be fine with acquiring him but not if we expect him to be our DM. He should be a CM in a 3-5-2 similar to the way conte used Pogba or Barella. We are still missing that piece in front of the defense although Brozo did a great job in that role again last night.

I'd rather give Arturo Vidal to Conte for 2 years than go get Ndombele or Ndidi or whoever else has been mentioned here and would cost a lot of money.

Don't have one.

Definitely poch according to tottenham fans, or at least ones who were writing on reddit where I was reading it when the news first broke that we are interested. Although i wouldn't say he took his mentality into account given that he had problems with it even in lyon.

We need to pay Barca 15m€ + Vidal's big salary. I think Vidal ship has sailed.
