Premier League side Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing a fee with Tottenham for Japhet Tanganga, who has attracted strong interest from Milan.
Daniele Longo has reported that while Milan want an initial loan deal with the option to buy, Spurs have been looking to insert an obligation to buy in the deal as they want to sell the player as soon as they can. Forest’s inclusion in the race has complicated matters for the Rossoneri.
Steve Cooper’s side are willing to put €25 million on the plate for the defender to buy him outright and a fee is close to being agreed. The newly promoted outfit are serious for the player, who still wants Milan and he has informed his agents about it already.
While it is a blow to Milan, Paolo Maldini and co have not given up yet. They are considering whether to accept Spurs’ demands for an obligation to buy the player permanently next summer.
