Report: Champions League club could agree to pay £21m to sign Tottenham player, new contact has just happened

AC Milan are now open to agreeing to an obligation to purchase defender Japhet Tanganga from Tottenham Hotspur.

Negotiations have been ongoing over a potential deal to loan the Englishman to the Italian champions before the end of the transfer window.

Italian outlet Calcio Mercato say that fresh contact has now taken place over the potential deal.

Tottenham want an obligation to buy but Milan have so far been reluctant to agree to it, but there are signs that they are warming up to it.

Tanganga could join Milan with an obligation to buy

Milan are open to having an obligation if certain conditions and objectives are met in a deal of 23-25 million euros (£19.2 – 21 million) total.

Joe Rodon has also gone out on loan from Spurs already this week, with Antonio Conte preferring his young defenders get regular gametime elsewhere from the looks of it.

The report says that Tanganga is near the top of Milan’s wishlist and it seems that the clubs could be closing in on an agreement which suits everyone.

Tanganga burst onto the scene at Spurs under Jose Mourinho but finds plenty of competition for a spot at right wing-back now.

There is perhaps more scope for him to get into the side as a central defender, especially now that Rodon has left to join Rennes.

But he could also try and emulate Fikayo Tomori, who left London rivals Chelsea to join Milan and is now a serious contender for the England World Cup 2022 squad.
