According to Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas, Southampton are interested in signing Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga on loan until the end of the season.
Saints eye Hasenhuttl
Tanganga was also linked with a switch to West Bromwich Albion by the Express and Star in the last few hours.
Now, though, it seems the Saints are eyeing an approach for the 21-year-old, who is currently valued at £7.2m (Transfermarkt).
Suits Saints’ needs
Without a single minute of action in the Premier League this term (Transfermarkt) to his name, Tanganga is clearly not in Jose Mourinho’s immediate plans in north London. As such, a loan away from the club could make sense.
Would you like to sign Tanganga?
Previously compared to Aston Villa and Ireland legend Paul McGrath by Tony Cascarino after his performance in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool last season (talkSPORT), he is clearly a player with plenty of talent. Ralph Hasenhuttl has made it clear he is looking for a full-back in this transfer window (The Daily Echo), and Tanganga could seemingly be that man.
In other news, Southampton have entered talks for this 29-year-old striker.
