Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan in talks over a loan deal for Japhet Tanganga

According to the Daily Mail, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur are in talks to seal a loan deal for Japhet Tanganga with an obligation to buy.

However, Spurs want to include a buy-back clause in case the Englishman joins I Rossoneri on a permanent deal. Tanganga, now 23, is getting to a stage in his career where he would want regular playing time.

He is no longer the youth prospect he was when he was breaking into the first-team set-up under Jose Mourinho. However, it is clear Antonio Conte hasn’t trusted him in big games.

He managed just 739 minutes of Premier League football last campaign. A buy-back clause, however, would indicate that Spurs still believe he can become a world-class player one day.

A good move for all parties

Even if they don’t, it’s always wise to insert such an option and play it safe. Perhaps, Spurs are taking a leaf out of Real Madrid’s book, who inserted such a clause in Sergio Reguilon’s deal when he joined Spurs.

Spurs have enough cover at centre-back to be able to part ways with Tanganga although a temporary move instead of a permanent one would be advised. Clement Lenglet is only here for one season after sealing a loan deal from Barcelona.

Tanganga can play as a right-back but those who have seen him know that he is limited in his abilities going forward. Regardless, Spurs now have three players in that position – four, if you count Lucas Moura considering he played as a right wing-back a few times this month.

Matt Doherty, Emerson Royal and Djed Spence will all vie for playing time down that flank. Milan seem to be eager to do business in England in recent times, especially in London.

They loaned Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea and sealed permanent transfers for Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori. Whether Tanganga is their latest capture from the Premier League remains to be seen.
