While there might be some confusion when it comes to the timeline of talks between Milan and Tottenham for Japhet Tanganga, the Italian club’s interest in the defender is undeniable at this stage.

Hoping to repeat the success story that was the deal for Fikayo Tomori, the Serie A side are targeting the Spurs man to bolster their defence following their failure to sign Sven Botman.

There has been a lot of talk about a new meeting taking place between Milan and Tanganga’s agent (and perhaps even Tottenham), but when that was set to happen was unclear.

Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday dare not shed light, but explain ‘they could discuss it today with the player’s agents’, said to be expected in the Italian city on Tuesday.

While ‘there are no appointments set’, technology these days means ‘the phones can ring at any moment’.

Over at Corriere dello Sport, the belief is that Tanganga ‘should arrive on loan with the right of redemption’.

They add that ‘contacts in this sense haves already been started with Tottenham’, receiving ‘positive feedback’ in the process.

Those in charge of transfers at Milan ‘aim to reach a definitive understanding’ with those managing Tanganga’s affair, who are ‘expected in Milan’ sometime ‘between today and tomorrow’.

If they can do that, the Serie A side can then ‘return to the office with even more arguments’ to put in front of Tottenham.
