MilanNews.it have revealed that AC Milan might face competition from clubs across the continent for Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga.

It emerged earlier this week that Fabio Paratici and Tanganga’s agent are set to fly to Italy to negotiate Tanganga’s sale with representatives from AC Milan (Gianluca Di Marzio).

CalcioMercato.it suggested on Monday that Milan were ‘ready to sink a blow’ for Tanganga over the coming days.

The report added that the Rossoneri want to try and bring down Tottenham’s asking price of €30m (£24.5m) for the defender and they hope to strike a loan deal with an obligation to buy.

MilanNews.it have now explained that winning the race for Tanganga ‘will not be easy’ for the reigning Serie A champions.

The report adds that Milan are still far from agreeing on a fee with Spurs for the 23-year-old and that they could face competition from Celtic, Bournemouth and Monaco.

It is asserted that Tanganga is keen to depart Spurs as he wants to play regularly next season.

I think a move to Milan would be quite appealing to Tanganga. He might view Fikayo Tomori’s rise at the San Siro as an example of what he can achieve. Seeing as three parties want the deal to go through, one would expect an agreement to be reached within the next few days.
