AC Milan are keen on signing Japhet Tanganga from Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old is currently out of favour in North London and is yet to make an appearance for the Spurs this season.
With the centre-back has struggled to cement his place as a first-team regular and he is currently being linked with a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Milan have previously shown an interest in the Englishman, and according to Calcio Mercato, the Italian champions are still keen to bring him to the San Siro.
Discussions between the two parties have restarted, but the Rossoneri are reluctant to accept a loan deal with an option to buy.
AC Milan would rather agree a permanent move that includes a buy-back clause for the Lilywhites.
