Newcastle United: PIF eyeing Japhet Tanganga move

Newcastle United: PIF eyeing Japhet Tanganga move -Newcastle United News

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) are reportedly now eyeing up a move to bring Japhet Tanganga to Newcastle United.

The Lowdown: Lack of game-time

After a bright start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, having been hailed as ‘really special’ by Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville after an impressive performance on the opening day against Manchester City, the 23-year-old found himself slowly falling out of favour at Tottenham Hotspur.

He played just 19 times in all competitions and completed the full 90 minutes in just 11 of those games (Transfermarkt); and with Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet signing on loan for Spurs for next term, Tanganga’s future has been further cast into doubt.

The Latest: Newcastle offer for Tanganga

Taking to Twitter, TUTTOmercatoWEB journalist Marco Conterio has revealed that Newcastle have now offered a loan with an obligation to buy deal for Tanganga, a proposal which Spurs ‘like’.

Translated from Italian, he tweeted: #Milan remains strong on the Japhet Tanganga talent of the #Tottenham for the defence but there is the insertion of #Newcastle.

“#NUFC offers the loan with obligation to redeem to #THFC, a formula that Spurs like.”

The Verdict: Low-risk

Signing Tanganga on an initial loan presents a low risk deal for Newcastle, who may also get a discounted price for the Englishman given that he seemingly no longer has a place in Antonio Conte’s squad at Tottenham.

Should Newcastle sign Tanganga?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Once dubbed ‘amazing’ by former Lilywhites manager Jose Mourinho, the defender still has a lot of promise at just 23 years of age.

Nonetheless, Eddie Howe will likely be confident that he can get the best out of the player; and if he does, it could turn out to be an exceptional prospective signing for the Magpies.
