Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga could join Bournemouth in January

Tottenham currently sits in fourth place in the Premier League, with 29 points. They are ahead of big clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Conte’s style of play has been criticized at times this season. Tottenham has struggled for creativity in some games, relying heavily on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for inspiration in the final third.

However, the Italian is still doing an excellent job. He has a lot of experience and will know exactly what the Spurs need to do to stay in the top four.

Spurs are also in the last 16 of the Champions League after winning Group D, where they will face AC Milan, where Conte will return after a successful spell at Inter.

A few Tottenham Hotspur players are dissatisfied with life under Conte. Djed Spence has only played three minutes of Premier League football since joining for £20 million in the summer. Conte immediately labeled him a club signing, effectively setting the right-back up for failure.

Midfielder Yves Bissouma had a difficult start to his career in north London as well. Conte kept him out of the starting eleven for the majority of the league games at the start of the season, saying he needed to improve tactically before getting his chance.

Fortunately, the 26-year-old has done just that, claiming a spot in the midfield for himself.

Tottenham’s defender has withdrawn from contention.

Japhet Tanganga is going through a rough patch under Conte. This season, he has only made one appearance, which was in the Champions League and lasted only 17 minutes.

Conte’s pecking order includes the centre-half, who can also play right back. As a result, the club may let him go this winter.

Tanganga, according to Spurs expert John Wenham, should be allowed to join Bournemouth because he is having a poor season at Spurs.

“He’s only played once this season, off the bench in the Champions League, isn’t it?”

“Wenham told Football Insider in an interview.

“How are things going with him?” He should go do something else for his own good. Is that going to be a six-month loan?

“I believe that is the best bet for increasing his value.” Journalists reported in the summer that Bournemouth were interested.

“Well, call Bournemouth again and ask if they want him on loan from January.” That is the best option for him.

“His value is low right now because he isn’t playing, but with a Premier League loan under his belt, his value would skyrocket.”

“But we have to think about it because he would have to be replaced.”

Spurs halved their asking price for Tanganga, according to reports in Italy earlier this month. While they previously requested £16.8 million from interested clubs such as Bournemouth, they will now accept offers worth only £8.75 million.

Meanwhile, according to one journalist, Spurs executives will be ‘actively monitoring’ a Uruguayan star at the World Cup.
