Japhet Tanganga has remained AC Milan’s main defensive target having reached an agreement in principle to sign the Tottenham man, according to Corriere dello Sport (30/07/22 via Sport Witness). 

Milan have identified Tanganga as a suitable option to bolster their squad but are continuing to work out the structure of a deal after holding a meeting with Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici. 

The report notes that the Rossoneri want to sign the 23-year-old on an initial loan with an option to buy, while Spurs are insistent on including an obligation clause instead. 

Meanwhile, according to CalcioMercato, AC Milan have reached an agreement in principle to sign Japhet Tanganga on loan from Tottenham but both clubs are still working on the figures involved in the deal.

It is claimed Milan have agreed on an initial loan for Tanganga, who is their top defensive transfer target, with an option to make the move permanent down the line.

However, the report adds they have not yet shaken hands with Spurs on how much the clause is due to be worth for the England youth international.

Journalist Daniele Longo recently reported Tanganga is keen on the move to the San Siro and is looking to bide his time while waiting for a deal to be put together. 

The proposed switch to Italy comes after he endured another difficult season at Spurs where he again failed to force his way into the starting fold. 

Tanganga’s last two campaigns have been plagued by injury issues with his most recent issue coming in the form of a knee injury which kept him out of action for the second half of the season. 

He returned to full fitness over the summer and has featured regularly for Antonio Conte during his pre-season preparations.

This deal looks like one that could drag out a little as both Spurs and Milan want slightly different structures overall. Eventually, one side will have to give in if they are to get what they want but hopefully there will be some kind of agreement that will benefit both.
