Sportitalia: Milan and Spurs to hold new talks over loan with option deal for defender

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will hold new talks with Spurs next week regarding a deal for defender Japhet Tanganga, according to a report.

Milan are looking for a new centre-back after missing out on Sven Botman and they continue to be linked with a host of different names by the media, with the suggestion now being that they will look for a low-cost outlay thus diverting the funds from the Botman deal towards the attack which arguably needs more investment.

According to the latest from Sportitalia journalist Gianluigi Longari on Twitter, ‘new contacts are planned for next week between Milan and Tottenham to understand the eventual cost’ of the centre-back.

He adds that the Rossoneri are eyeing a ‘possible deal on loan with an option to buy’ but they face competition from club icon Gennaro Gattuso, who has just taken the head coach job at Valencia, and the LaLiga side are keen on the 23-year-old Englishman.
