Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga is not currently close to a move to Nottingham Forest, according to Fabrizio Romano on Twitter.
The Italian journalist has revealed that any potential move to the City Ground could take time due to AC Milan’s interest.
The Serie A outfit are still pushing to sign the 23-year-old academy graduate, who has yet to make an appearance for Antonio Conte’s first team this season.
The Athletic claimed earlier today that Forest are keen to take Tanganga on a permanent deal, with Tottenham expecting a fee in the region of £16.8million.
Tottenham and Nottingham Forest are not close to an agreement for Japhet Tanganga, as things stand – it will take time as AC Milan are still pushing to sign him. 🚨⚪️ #THFC
Also, Sergio Reguilón has different priorities as of now. Nothing close or agreed.

Given that there now appears to be more than one club in for Tanganga, it can only bode well for Tottenham to look to offload the defender on a permanent basis.
Tanganga impressed during his Premier League debut against Liverpool and has had a few solid displays since, however, injury issues have curtailed his ability to keep his grip on a regular place and now finds himself considerably down in Conte’s central defensive pecking order.
