Tottenham: Bournemouth opens talks to sign Japhet Tanganga

Tottenham: Bournemouth opens talks to sign Japhet Tanganga -Premier League News

Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga is in talks over a potential move to newly-promoted Premier League side Bournemouth, according to The Athletic.

The Lowdown: Multiple roadblocks

Antonio Conte has recently completed the loan signing of Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet and is still believed to be interested in a move for Villarreal’s Pau Torres, which creates a huge problem when it comes to the future of the 23-year-old Spurs academy graduate.

After sustaining a serious knee injury in February, the centre-back’s season was ended prematurely, compounding the considerable lack of game-time that he experienced beforehand. He only made 11 league appearances for the Lilywhites last term and 19 in total, which may suggest that a move away from N17 could be on the cards.

The Latest: Tanganga in talks with Bournemouth

The Athletic claimed on Friday that Tottenham are ‘in talks’ with Bournemouth to discuss a deal for Tanganga.

The report stated that sources have confirmed that ‘both a loan move and permanent transfer’ are being considered by the two clubs, but it’s understood that there is also ‘interest’ in the £10.8m-rated gem from Italy, with AC Milan and Napoli ‘monitoring’ the situation.

The Verdict: Time to move on

It’s unfortunate that Tanganga has been on the sidelines for such a long period of time, with Conte creating and typically sticking with a back three of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies in his absence, and it seems like an impossible task for the 23-year-old to force his way back into the manager’s thoughts.

The 6 foot powerhouse, who was once dubbed ‘solid as a rock’ at the back by sports journalist Josh Bunting, only made six outings in the top flight under the current Spurs boss prior to his injury. If he stays, the likelihood is that he would only be pushed further down the pecking order as a result of Lenglet’s arrival in north London.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

The best option for Tanganga would be to complete a move away to get some regular football under his belt, whilst Spurs would be able to cash in and financially reap the benefits which could be used to generate future transfer funds.
