According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga wants to play more consistently amid interest from Serie A side AC Milan.

The 23-year-old made his senior debut for Spurs towards the end of 2019. He has been impacted by injuries as he has only played 43 times for his boyhood club across all competitions.

Tanganga started ten times last season in the Premier League. He missed the last few months of the campaign as a result of a knee injury.

Tanganga is primarily a centre-back but he can also be operated at right-back.

Tottenham are set to add to their defensive ranks as they have agreed to sign Clement Lenglet on loan from Barcelona.

Sky Italia (via Sport Witness) are reporting that Tanganga is looking to ‘play continuously’ during this upcoming season.

It is noted that this could be difficult with Spurs bringing in Lenglet. The report also states that AC Milan are ‘looking at the possibility’ of signing Tanganga.

They add that the Italian side have ‘held a meeting’ with the player’s agent to discuss the prospect of Tanganga joining them.

Elsewhere, Tottenham are reportedly closing in on the signing of Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence as Daniel Levy signs off Steven Bergwijn’s transfer to Ajax.

The England under-21 international was in outstanding form on loan at Nottingham Forest last season with the wing-back helping Steve Cooper’s side win promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.

Spence contributed two goals and four assists in 42 appearances for Forest in the English second tier and has now attracted interest from Tottenham.

His reputation has risen at an incredible rate this season with former Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock happy to see him leave the Riverside on a temporary deal last summer.

And his form for Forest means Middlesbrough are set to benefit financially with the Daily Telegraph claiming that Tottenham ‘are close to finally completing the protracted’ capture of Spence.

Spurs ‘expect to seal the signing before this weekend’ after weeks of negotiations and ‘is set to undergo a medical in time to join Tottenham on their pre-season tour of South Korea, with the squad flying out on Saturday’.

The Telegraph adds: ‘Middlesbrough have previously turned down offers of £10m and £11m but are settling on a £15m fee upfront which could reach £20m after instalments.’
