Tottenham Hotspur are set to benefit from a transfer windfall as AC Milan prepares a £21 million bid for Jose Mourinho’s preferred candidate.

AC MILAN are interested in signing a promising Tottenham Hotspur player.

Japhet Tanganga of Tottenham Hotspur is being considered by AC Milan.

The Englishman has been identified by the Serie A giants as someone who can provide much-needed defensive cover in their backline.

Due to the injury to first-choice centre-back and captain Simon Kjaer, Stefano Pioli’s team has been short on options in the back four.

After rupturing his cruciate ligament earlier in the season, the Dane will miss the remainder of the campaign.

Milan has been linked with a number of defensive options throughout the transfer window as they try to keep up with Serie A league leaders and bitter rivals Inter Milan.

According to Tuttosport, via Football Italia, the Rossoneri have requested information on the Spurs defender’s potential availability.

Antonio Conte’s side is also thought to have slapped a £21 million price tag on the 22-year-old’s head.

Tanganga is not one of Conte’s first-choice defenders, but the versatile defender is expected to deliver.

Tanganga looked destined for a season at the heart of the defence this season after starting the north Londoners’ first four matches under Nuno Espirito-Santo.

After the club signed Emerson Royal from Barcelona, however, his chances became limited.

Tanganga has started three of Conte’s first seven Premier League games, but hasn’t played in the league since a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

While AC Milan appears to be interested in the central defender, who can also play right-back, his high price tag may deter the Italians.

Tottenham are also thought to be unwilling to loan out the defender until the end of the season.

Spurs’ interest in AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie, however, is said to be the catalyst for a series of bartering between the two clubs, according to the report.

Kessie has established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting midfielders, but Milan could lose the Ivory Coast international on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Tanganga, meanwhile, has a contract with Tottenham Hotspur until 2025 after signing a new deal at the start of last season.

During Jose Mourinho’s brief reign at the club, he made an immediate impact with a stunning performance.
