Japhet Tanganga’s agent, Roberto di Fanti has admitted that taking the Spurs defender to Napoli would be a dream.
The defender broke into the Tottenham first-team back in January and did not look back as he quickly became a regular across the Spurs back line.
However, injury problems prevented the 21-year-old from getting a look in after the restart, while fans are yet to catch a glimpse of him during pre-season.
As a reward for his breakthrough season, the Spurs academy graduate put pen to paper on a new five-year contract with the club a little over a month ago.
After committing his future to the club, Tanganga vowed to continue working hard in order to improve every day.
His agent has now admitted that signing the defender from Spurs would be difficult, following his recent contract extension, but refused to rule out a move to Napoli in the future.
When asked about a potential move to Naples for his client, Di Fanti told Radio Punto Nuovo: “(Tanganga) has almost unique features: combining physical gifts, speed and technique. The only problem is that we have decided to stay with the Spurs, extending the contract until 2024.
“Any potential suitor will have to deal with the London management. Obviously, we all know the history of Napoli and for me, as an Italian, it would be a dream to bring Japhet there one day.”

The fact that it took as long as it did for Spurs to negotiate a contract extension with Tanganga suggested that all was not well between the club and his representatives. Based on the comments above, it would appear as if the problem lay with the defender’s agent. Hopefully, the youngster does not have his head turned by bad advice from his representatives.
