Turkish club Galatasaray have Tottenham Hotspur’s Japhet Tanganga on their radar

Journalist Mike McGrath of The Telegraph has provided the latest on Tottenham Hotspur defender, Japhet Tanganga. The piece mentions that the player could leave on loan this summer. Turkish club Galatasaray have made an offer to Tottenham for the services of Tanganga on a season-long deal.  

With Toby Alderweireld already leaving this summer for Al-Duhail, Spurs should be cautious about their depth at the back and if they fail to sign any new defenders, then perhaps Tanganga’s inclusion in their squad for next season will benefit them.
