Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga is waiting for a dream move to Italy with Inter Milan keen while Everton and Luton want to sign him, according to Lyall Thomas.

The Sky Sports journalist was speaking to Last Word on Spurs, and claimed that he’s aware of the two Premier League sides showing an interest in him,

However, he has reported that he’s waiting to move to Inter after missing out on AC Milan over the past few months and a resolution is not expected soon.

He said on 27 August, “I think he’s waiting for Inter. Inter Milan are interested in him as well [along with Everton]. He’s on their shortlist. Their priority is to sign Benjamin Pavard. If you’re Tanganga and you missed out on a dream move to AC Milan last summer, it makes sense to wait this one out. There is Premier League interest in him as well and I’m aware of Luton too.”

If they do end up signing Pavard, they will not be needing Tanganga and that makes a whole lot of sense.

Pavard is an experienced international defender who’s won the World Cup and will be a quality signing for Inter.

This will see Tanganga missing out on another move to Italy and it’s time for Everton to be ready to make an approach now.

The Toffees should be favourites to sign him if it’s just Luton in the race to secure his services.

Tanganga has proven on numerous occasions that he can put in a shift for Spurs and he will be a decent signing for Sean Dyche’s side.

It remains to be seen who they end up signing as a centre-back is desperately needed this summer given the lack of quality in that department.
