Low-cost reporting names Spurs can accept for Japhet Tanganga – Spurs Web

A report from an Italian outlet CMW may have just revealed how much Tottenham are willing to sell Japhet Tanganga, with the defender struggling for minutes under Antonio Conte.

The 23-year-old has been at Spurs his entire career so far, having come through the club’s academy before being promoted to the first team in 2020. Tanganga has made just 44 appearances for Tottenham since then (transfer market), and is on the sidelines of Antonio Conte’s team.

Tanganga has played just 17 minutes of football for Spurs this season, replacing the opener of this year’s Champions League group stage against Marseille (transfer market).

Many clubs have courted Tanganga this summer, including AC Milan (Football Insider), Nottingham Forest (Luca Bianchin) and AS Roma (CalcioMercato). No move materialized, however, as Antonio Conte sought to keep him at Spurs as cover for the team.

With the January transfer window looming and Tanganga’s playing time in the Spurs first team limited, he is widely expected to leave the club (The evening norm).

There should be a long line of clubs ready to sign him as well, especially if CMW’s report is to be believed when it comes to Tottenham’s asking price for the player.

According to CMW, Spurs will be keen to offload the youngster and would accept as little as £8.75million in January. This, despite Tanganga being a homegrown player, something Spurs desperately need in their squad.

How accurate that assessment is remains to be seen, but any club that gets Tanganga at that price will get a bargain, you’ll have to think.

I’d like to think we can demand a bit more for Tanganga, especially given its local status. But, if that’s what it takes to offload a player who clearly has no future at the club and allows us to bring in a new player in his place, then so be it.
