Tottenham have lowered their demands for Japhet Tanganga to leave, but the defender’s rejection of Bournemouth could spark action at Manchester United, according to reports.
With Tottenham making changes to their backline this summer, Tanganga might be on the move. After acquiring Clement Lenglet at left center-back and Ivan Perisic at left wing-back, right wing-back is still the last position they need to fill.
Tanganga is no longer needed and, according to Football Italia, is being considered by AC Milan.
In recent years, the Serie A powerhouses have had great success acquiring players from the Premier League.
Fikayo Tomori has impressed at centre back while Olivier Giroud is still a force up front.
State of Italian football Tottenham has changed its position from initially demanding that any loan agreement include a buy-back clause.
As a result, a change that has been well received in Milan is that Spurs might now be willing to accept a loan with an option instead.
Milan aren’t the only club evaluating Tanganga, though, according to other Italian media sources.
Calciomercato confirm AC’s interest in the 23-year-old and claim that communication with the player’s agents has resumed. Although TuttoMercatoWeb reports that Newcastle are also considering a transfer, Spurs’ softer stance is reiterated.
Sven Botman, who was ironically strongly linked to Milan, has already been signed by the Magpies this summer.
