The Lowdown: Out of favour
The 23-year-old found himself largely out of favour at Tottenham last season, playing just 19 times across all competitions and completing the full 90 minutes on just 11 separate occasions (Transfermarkt).
They have recently signed centre-back Clement Lenglet on loan from Barcelona, putting Tanganga’s future in N17 further into doubt.
The Latest: Everton request
Taking to Twitter, Longari has revealed that Everton, along with Southampton, have now requested to sign Tanganga on loan, but AC Milan and Napoli have also closely followed the centre-back.
Translated from Italian, the reporter tweeted: “Many admirers for #Tanganga as anticipated last month. The #Milan but also the #Napoli closely follow the central of the #THFC which also has requests on loan from the Premier as #Southampton and #Everton . An Italian adventure teases the English defender.”
The Verdict: No-brainer
It certainly is a no-brainer for Everton to further bolster their defensive ranks, even after the signing of James Tarkowski on a free transfer, as the Toffees shipped 66 Premier League goals last season.
Hailed as ‘really special’ by Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville after an impressive performance on the opening day of the 2021/22 campaign against Manchester City, things were looking promising for Tanganga, but he now seems to have fallen down the pecking order at Spurs.
The 23-year-old could rejuvenate his career with a season at Goodison Park, and given that it would only be a loan deal, the move has little risk attached to it from an Everton point of view.
