Milan are keen on making a summer transfer for Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga, but they are yet to close a distance between demand and supply.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Tutto Mercato Web), Milan have postponed their meeting with the agent of Japhet Tanganga for a few days.
The report reveals that there is still distance between the two parties over a potential deal for the defender.
While Milan want to sign the 23-year-old on an initial loan plus an option to buy, Spurs want an obligation to be included in the deal so that they could guarantee the player’s departure from the London-based club.
The story further suggests that if the Rossoneri management fails to land the Englishman this summer, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Evan Ndicka is seen as an alternative. The 22-year-old Frenchman is under the German club’s contract until June 2023.
A report from Daniel Longo, however, claims that the postponement of the meeting has taken place as a result of Milan’s willingness to sort out the deal for Charles De Ketelaere at first.
