Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur open to loan transfer of Japhet Tanganga after next week amidst AC Milan interest

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur are open to facilitating a loan transfer for Japhet Tanganga after next week amidst interest from AC Milan. He has seen his minutes increase recently following the injury to Eric Dier, although that could change once the latter returns to the squad.

Milan are still searching for a centre-back to boost their backline and have shortlisted Tanganga on their transfer list. They are only interested in a loan move and have targeted others alongside him for that purpose.

Manchester United’s Eric Bailly and Abdou Diallo of Paris Saint-Germain are the two other alternative options for the Serie A club. They have not contacted Man United over a move while Diallo is still on the list despite them looking for other options.

Spurs to sell Tanganga?

The reason why they have set that date is still unknown, so we cannot say for sure what Tottenham’s intentions are regarding the future of the 22-year-old. One reason could be that they may be looking at options to bring in this month to compensate for his potential departure- but there is nothing solid to indicate that so far.

At the same time, the decision can also be down to Dier’s or Cristian Romero’s injury situation, as they may return to the squad by that time. These are just theories at this point and would have to be taken lightly in that regard as a result.

On top of that, the club is set to play two very important league games within the space of a few days. After a crunch tie against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City tonight, they are set to take on Chelsea in a fierce London derby on Sunday. There is a long gap in the fixture list after that as of now, with Spurs next in action on 5th February in the FA Cup.

However, loaning out the Englishman may not be in our best interest, considering we need to keep the squad intact to ensure we have a successful campaign. Not just that, as Joe Rodon has found it even more difficult to earn minutes under Antonio Conte, which poses the question of why we are not moving him off our wage bill instead.

In any case, the fact that we have been keeping hold of the U21 England international has helped us to overcome the injury struggles in the backline. There is always the possibility that we may see similar cases in the future, which further questions the stance taken by Spurs.

It remains to be seen how this situation will pan out after next week and if the interest from the Italian side will get acknowledged by us. Time will tell whether the Tottenham centre-back will stay with us, or if he will end up leaving before the January transfer window closes.

A versatile defender, he has the ability to play as a defensive right-back as well, as he did on several occasions under Jose Mourinho. He is still a useful player for us and at a time when we should be strengthening our depth, loaning him out doesn’t make the most sense.
