Japhet Tanganga wants to join AC Milan, waiting for move - journalist

Journalist Daniele Longo has reported on Twitter that Japhet Tanganga wants to join AC Milan this summer as talks with Tottenham Hotspur over an initial loan deal continue.

Tanganga may well be one of the next players to leave Spurs this summer. The 23-year-old has impressed throughout his time in the first-team in North London, with José Mourinho once labelling him ‘amazing‘.

However, he has struggled to earn a regular spot in the side for various reasons. And with Tottenham strengthening further in defence, it appears that Tanganga needs to leave to secure regular game-time.

Leading the race is AC Milan with talks ongoing over an initial loan deal. Reports at the weekend claimed that the move would then become permanent.

Tottenham meanwhile, are looking to agree a buy-back clause that would potentially leave the door open for the academy graduate to return in the future.

It does seem that Tanganga is keen to make the switch. Longo claimed on social media that he is ready to wait for Milan to push through a deal as he wants to play at San Siro this coming season…

A loan that includes an obligation to buy and a buy-back clause looks to be absolutely ideal for all parties. Tanganga, unfortunately, is not going to get the game-time he craves should he stay at Spurs.

And he will have seen several players thrive after swapping the Premier League for Serie A in recent years.

Tottenham are not cutting ties completely. They will be able to possibly bring him back in the future once he has developed further.

And Milan could perhaps the replicate the success of the deal to sign Fikayo Tomori, which certainly helped the Rossoneri go on and win the Scudetto last season.
