Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga has reportedly already made a behind-the-scenes north London exit decision as he eyes his next club.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing player sales…
The arrivals of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet (loan) and Djed Spence have backed manager Antonio Conte in the transfer market whilst plugging many holes in the Italian’s squad.
Who should Tottenham sign after Spence?
It is believed that he also remains on the lookout for a creative midfield player and could still go for another central defender despite Lenglet’s arrival at N17.
However, sporting director Fabio Paratici is said to be focusing his efforts on outgoings after Spurs’ plethora of transfer activity and they arguably need to balance the books ahead of what will be an interesting 2022/2023 Premier League campaign.
The Latest: Tanganga decides to leave…
Now, a report from Italy in the last 48 hours has shared news on Tanganga as he eyes a move to European giants AC Milan.
The Englishman has allegedly already ‘decided to leave’ Spurs because he is looking for more game time – with Calciomercato even claiming he ‘wants’ the Rossoneri specifically.
The Verdict: Find agreement?
Tanganga is a player of real ability on his day, as evident by his fantastic start to the 2021/2022 campaign under former Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs supporters will remember his phenomenal opening performance against Man City last year which prompted BBC pundit Alan Shearer to call him ‘magnificent’.
Given his clear potential and the fact he’s homegrown, it may well be wise to negotiate a temporary deal with AC rather than a permanent one.
