Sky: Agents of Spurs defender due in Italy for Milan talks as exit is sanctioned

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are making headway in their attempts to sign Japhet Tanganga from Spurs as talks with his agent are scheduled, a report claims.

The Rossoneri missed out on Sven Botman who decided to join Newcastle United, and it seems as though Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have changed their strategy regarding a defensive signing by opting for a loan with option to buy deal.

According to what is being reported by Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas, Milan have opened talks with Tottenham over a deal to sign Tanganga. The London side are open to letting the 23-year-old leave on loan, and his agents are due in Milano to be part of discussions tomorrow.

Tanganga made 11 Premier League appearances last season before seeing his season ended prematurely due to a knee injury he picked up. Despite being a Spurs academy product, it seems as though they are willing to sanction his exit.

  1. Interesting one, player with lots of potential but hardly played for the last year and even before that was being used as a full back. Would seem an apt replacement/backup for the current centre back pair
