CalcioMercato have revealed that AC Milan could agree to include an obligation to buy in a loan deal for Japhet Tanganga as long as certain objectives are met during the defender’s time at the San Siro.
Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Monday that Milan were ready to abandon their pursuit of Tanganga and turn their attentions to Paris Saint-Germain’s Abdou Diallo instead.
However, CalcioMercato now claim that the Rossoneri continue to have an eye on both the PSG and Spurs stars for the moment. It is explained that while Diallo remains Milan’s top target, PSG are not open to loaning out the Senegal international.
Tanganga’s salary is thought to be more affordable to the Serie A club, who allegedly made fresh contacts with the defender’s agent regarding a potential move to the San Siro.
The report adds that Tottenham are open to loaning out the 23-year-old but want an obligation to buy included in the deal, with Milan only proposing an option to buy so far.
However, CalcioMercato suggest that Stefano Pioli’s side would be willing to accept an obligation to buy Tanganga for €23m- €25m (£19.2m-£20.9m) as long as the defender meets some targets during his time at the club.

Tanganga has a poor injury record over the last three years, and so, I would not be surprised if Milan are demanding a clause on the 23-year-old being available for a certain number of matches for the obligation to buy to be triggered.
