Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga is attracting interest from fellow Premier League side Everton, according to Inter Live.

The academy graduate is expected to be one of a handful of Tottenham players to head out of the door prior to the summer transfer window closing as Ange Postecoglou continues to revamp his squad (The Sun).

After making a bright start to his senior Spurs career with an impressive Premier League debut against Liverpool in January 2020 while Jose Mourinho was still in charge, but struggled to hold down a regular place under Antonio Conte.

The central defender was left out of Postecoglou’s match day squad for both of the opening Premier League fixtures against Brentford and Manchester United with the Australian instead preferring to utilise Davinson Sanchez as cover from the bench.

Everton keen on Japhet Tanganga

The report claims that Premier League newcomers Luton Town are leading the race to land the former England Under-21 international as they push to take him on loan with an option to make the deal permanent.

Inter Milan have also considered making a move for the 24-year-old as they look to bolster their defensive options, while Everton have also made moves for his signature.

Tanganga is under contract in North London until the summer of 2025 and now looks to be set to kick-start his career away from the club where he progressed through the ranks as a youngster (transfermarkt).

SpursWeb Opinion

A lack of regular first-team football has not helped Tanganga’s cause and has mostly been used as emergency cover in recent times.  He struggles to perform at a high level without a regular run of gams under his belt and instead, a move to Everton would be a sensible switch for him given their poor start to the new campaign.
