Japhet Tanganga has become a target for AC Milan who wants to sign him on loan this month, according to Sun Sports.
The Tottenham academy product has fallen down the pecking order since Cristian Romero arrived in the summer.
He has seen regular action in recent weeks, but that is because the Argentinian has been out with an injury.
When he returns, Tanganga is expected to return to a bench role, and Milan wants to take advantage of that to land him for the rest of this season.
At 22, the English defender remains one of the finest youngsters in the Tottenham squad, and he needs to keep playing to remain in top shape.
This makes a loan move away this month sensible. However, it could backfire when a key defender like Romero or Eric Dier is unavoidably out, and we need a replacement.
Tanganga is versatile and can comfortably slot in as a wing-back under our new system.
It is much better to offload Joe Rodon this month if we need to send someone away.
The former England Under21 international should be patient enough and fight the players ahead of him in the pecking order for a chance.
Hopefully, the presence of Japhet Tanganga in the squad will push the players in front of him to keep performing at their best.
