Serie A giants AC Milan have informed Tottenham Hotspur of their interest in a 2nd member of Antonio Conte’s squad, according to reports.
The last couple of weeks, of course, have seen an out-of-favour member of the defensive ranks on the Lilywhite half of north London, in the form of Japhet Tanganga, hotly tipped for a San Siro switch.
Amid the ongoing efforts of the Rossoneri to reinforce the heart of the club’s backline, Tanganga, fresh off a campaign which saw him string together just 10 Premier League starts, has been identified as a leading target.
If the latest word stemming from the Italian media on Thursday is anything to go by, though, then Tanganga may not be the only Spurs star who swaps London for Milan with a view to the fast-approaching new season.
The other? Pape Matar Sarr.
As per a report from transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the powers that be on the red half of the Milanese divide have earmarked Sarr as a potential addition to the club’s midfield ranks.
This comes after the Senegalese talent enjoyed a productive campaign back on loan in France with FC Metz this past season.
In turn, the Serie A champions are hopeful of Tottenham sanctioning another temporary departure for their up-and-coming starlet in 2022/23, a subject brought to the fore during Fabio Paratici’s visit to Lombardy to discuss Tanganga’s future earlier this evening.
