Transfer News: Everton and Southampton want to sign Japhet Tanganga

According to Sportitalia journalist Gianluigi Longari (via Sport Witness) [h/t Football. London], Everton and Southampton have approached Tottenham over a loan deal for talented defender Japhet Tanganga.

A product of the Spurs academy since 2015, Tanganga is one of the most talented players coming out of the youth setup in recent years. Making his breakthrough under former manager Jose Mourinho, Tanganga was destined for greatness.

A solid defender who can play in multiple positions, Tanganga is a coach’s delight. The English footballer can play as a centre-back, at right-back, left-back and even as a right-midfielder sometimes.

Tanganga has struggled during his recent season with a huge injury disrupting his campaign since January. This meant that the English defender was unable to establish himself under Antonio Conte.

The 23-year-old defender played 19 times for Spurs this season, failing to score or assist across all competitions. Despite a dismal season, there is no doubt that Tanganga possesses a lot of potential.

It has now emerged that Tanganga might not feature in Antonio Conte’s plans going into next season and there are clubs that are interested in snapping up the talented Englishman ahead of next season.

Bournemouth and AC Milan were linked with Tanganga in recent weeks but it has now emerged that Everton and Southampton have approached Spurs for the possibility of loaning in the English defender.

This is an option that might be better for Spurs instead of selling him since it is evident that Tanganga has immense talent. He might not have a place at N17 right now but things could change in the future.

If Tanganga can go out on loan to one of these clubs and impress, then Spurs would be proven wise in their decision to not let the Englishman leave permanently. It remains to be seen what happens but the 23-year-old is not short of interest.
