The Daily Express have revealed that Luton Town and Inter Milan could be set for a battle to sign Japhet Tanganga before the transfer deadline.

Ange Postecoglou confirmed in his press conference on Friday that Tottenham are prioritising trimming their squad before they make further additions (Football.London), with Tanganga one of a whole flurry of players expected to leave the club over the next two weeks (Football Insider).

It was reported by Gianluca Di Marzio a couple of days ago that Inter had identified the 25-year-old as one of several potential options to reinforce their backline.

Luton Town also keen on Spurs’ Japhet Tanganga

The Express have now also backed up Inter’s interest in the Tottenham man and they reveal that Luton have emerged as the Serie A side’s main competitor for the player’s signature.

It is explained that both the Italian side and the newly promoted Premier League outfit want to sign Tanganga on a season-long loan deal.

The publication adds that the Spurs academy graduate’s preference is to head to the San Siro, which is why he is now waiting to see if Inter substantiate their interest.

Spurs Web Opinion

Tanganga has just two years left in his contract. So, Tottenham would ideally want to sell him rather than to loan him out. However, given that the North London club urgently need to offload several players, they would likely consider loaning out the 25-year-old defender with an option to buy.
