According to Gianluca Di Marzio, AC Milan have decided against pursuing Tottenham duo Japhet Tanganga and Sergio Reguilon this summer.

Tanganga has been heavily linked with a move to Milan over the past couple of weeks, with reports indicating Fabio Paratici had held negotiations with the Serie A club for the defender (Daniele Longo).

Football Insider even reported on Saturday that the Rossoneri were in ‘advanced talks’ to sign the 23-year-old, who was said to be ‘close’ to completing a move to the San Siro.

However, Di Marzio has now revealed that while Milan considered moving for Tanganga as well as Reguilon, who is also surplus to requirements at Tottenham, in the end they decided against signing either player.

The journalist claims the Italian club have decided to prioritise a move for PSG centre-back Abdou Diallo over Tanganga.

This could be set back to Spurs, with reports indicating over recent weeks that Antonio Conte wants to move Tanganga on to make room for a new centre-back (Football.London).

This should be much of an issue as there will likely still be plenty of takers for Tanganga. I would not be surprised if one of the three newly promoted clubs decide to take a punt on the 23-year-old.

I am also quite comfortable with the idea of the youngster staying as a backup player if Conte is open to keeping him at the club.
