Italian clubs are beginning to find some value in the English market with Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori starring in Serie A last season, and Milan appear to be interested in Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga.
The young centre-back can also play as a full-back and has looked impressive at times, but he has yet to develop into a regular starting player and has reached a point in his career where he needs to play games.
Fabrizio Romano reports that Milan have been in contact with Tottenham over a move to Tanganga as well as discussions about a loan transfer for Bab Matar Sar, but it looks like either deal is set to close soon:
AC Milan have discussed with Tottenham over Japhet Tanganga and the possibility of a loan transfer for Babi Matar Sarr, but there is still an agreement or advanced talks – only the club’s talk. ?? #THFC
…and Milan are seriously interested in Ivan Ndika as a central defender, as it was revealed two days ago??? https://t.co/qOfz9GIUsz

Tanganga has everything you could want in a modern defender and Milan have shown with Tomori that they can develop two talented players into key players, while Sarr is yet to play for Tottenham after staying on loan at Metz in France last season.
The Senegalese midfielder is highly rated so it would be interesting to see a team like AC Milan develop a young player for Tottenham, but that could be an interest that re-emerges later in the window if nothing else comes up beforehand.
