Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga has turned down several offers from clubs in the Premier League in favour of securing a potential move to AC Milan, according to CalcioMercato.
A handful of clubs in the English top flight made approaches to sign Tanganga but their attempts were in vain as the 23-year-old only has eyes on a switch to Serie A champions.
The Spurs academy graduate is closing in a loan to the San Siro this summer with a deal likely to include an obligation for Milan to make the move permanent (Daily Mail).
Journalist Daniele Longo reported that Tanganga is keen on heading to Italy and is now waiting for the Rossoneri to accelerate their pursuit.
Tanganga first broke into the first-team fold at Spurs in 2020 but has since struggled to nail down a regular place in the side. His last two seasons have been disrupted by various injuries with the latest being a knee problem which ruled him out for half of the campaign.
The England youth international underwent surgery in March but has returned to full fitness and played a part in Antonio Conte’s pre-season preparations.

Milan’s move for Tanganga should work for all parties as it will give him a chance to try and nail down a regular starting spot.
Some teams in the Premier League will have been made aware of his likely departure but when a team like Milan comes calling, it is difficult to turn down.
