Tottenham Hotspur are now considering changing their stance after Luton Town made an offer to loan Japhet Tanganga, despite Spurs preferring a permanent transfer.
That’s according to Ben Jacobs, who reports that Luton have now made an offer to Tottenham to sign Tanganga. But the Hatters are looking to lure the 24-year-old to Kenilworth Road on loan for this season only. While Spurs would prefer to sell the centre-back, it is not in their plans.
Tottenham have made Tanganga available on a permanent transfer as Ange Postecoglou won’t use the services of his academy graduate. The Aussie will follow his predecessors at the top of Spurs, only offering the defender a back-up role should he fail to make the move.
Tottenham will consider Luton’s offer of a loan transfer for Tanganga
Tanganga has sparked further interest in a possible transfer of Serie A giants Inter Milan and Super Lig club Galatasaray. But the Italian and Turkish clubs still have to push their goals. Sevilla too have now decided to tone down their interest, having recently mooted a deal.
Therefore, a move to Luton on loan is the only offer Tottenham have to consider at the moment while the club weigh Tanganga’s future. The Hatters have submitted a formal loan proposal for the former England Under-21 international. Therefore, the Spurs are now considering whether to accept the deal or not.
A loan deal to Kenilworth Road could save Tanganga’s Spurs career
Should Tottenham reject Luton’s offer of a loan transfer, Tanganga will be sidelined for another season. Postecoglou left the defender out of his matchday squad when Spurs started the season at Brentford. While Tanganga only played seven games last season.
Between the tenures of Antonio Conte, Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason, Tanganga only featured in four Premier League games in 2022/23. He also took part in the FA Cup twice and the Champions League once. However, these missions only lasted 343 minutes in total.
Sky Sports expert Gary Neville called Tanganga ‘special’ By August 2021, he had regained his form. So a move to Luton on loan could help him regain that potential. Tottenham don’t have to sell the defender this summer as his contract runs until 2025. But he needs play.
