Japhet Tanganga has ‘promised himself’ to AC Milan, reports Wednesday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, but he’s not willing to wait endlessly as the window grows older.

The Rossoneri, like most clubs, are having to balance their spending this summer, and the priority right now is trying to agree a deal for Charles De Ketelaere.

Club Brugge won’t budge from their asking price, and a meeting held in Lugano on Tuesday didn’t manage to bring the two negotiating teams any closer. The insinuation is that if a deal for the Belgian can be tied up quickly, then Milan will move for Tanganga.

The Tottenham player ‘only has eyes’ for Milan, but despite that Gazzetta say he ‘won’t wait long’. Right now there’s constant contact between Tanganga’s entourage and the Serie A side, and Sunday is mentioned as a deadline for the decision to be made.

Don’t be surprised if Sunday comes and goes and the deadline is pushed further back.

As for Tottenham, they’re said to want €20m. Milan would prefer this as an option at the end of a loan, whilst Spurs would want any loan to include an obligation to buy.
