‘Here we go’: Fabrizio Romano says ‘phenomenal’ Tottenham player is about to leave right now

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur defender Japhet Tanganga is on the verge of leaving the club on loan today.

This week, Spurs have been attempting to sell a number of its players. Today is supposed to be very active, and it appears that Tanganga will be among the first travelers.

Romano just stated the following on X.

Japhet Tanganga is leaving Tottenham on loan to join Augsburg

Has Japhet Tanganga’s career at Tottenham gone exactly according to plan?

Under Jose Mourinho, the ‘phenomenal’ defender, who came up through the Spurs academy, made his debut against Liverpool in January 2020.

He played brilliantly in that game, but for whatever reason, his career has been on hold for the past two years. Since February of last year, he has only appeared on the field four times in the Premier League, which is insufficient.

Now that he is 24 years old, Tanganga should be participating in regular football. At Spurs, that won’t happen, and they’re eager to let him go as well.

Although a permanent agreement hasn’t materialized, if Fabrizio Romano is to be believed, he will be joining Augsburg on loan in Germany till the end of the current campaign.

“Understand Augsburg are set to sign Japhet Tanganga deal, here we go,” Romano tweeted.

“Medical in the morning, one-year loan with a buy-option clause, and waiting for paperwork to be signed. Spurs are being careful until the deal is completed, but the verbal agreement is complete.

Nottingham Forest still want 27-year-old, but he doesn’t want deadline day move

Although the Colombian center back prefers to remain in North London, Nottingham Forest is still interested in signing Davinson Sanchez from Tottenham.

According to The Mail Online, the 27-year-old wants to stick around and compete for a job under new manager Ange Postecoglou.

For the past few months, Sanchez has been associated with the Reds, and he was even reportedly mentioned in connection with a possible player-plus-cash exchange for Brennan Johnson.

Sanchez’s decision to remain at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, though, may mean that any deal for Johnson will now have to be a straight cash transaction for up to £50 million.

Where do Nottingham Forest go from here?

Yesterday, Steve Cooper’s team strengthened their defense by acquiring Murillo from Corinthians for an estimated £14 million.

Forest are still searching for a third central defender despite the addition of Murillo before the transfer window closes tonight at 11 p.m.

The Reds may miss out on another defender with less than 12 hours left until the closure, but Felipe has been seen returning in training this week, which is encouraging for the Forest back line.

The club are also looking to bring in a wing-back, with a deal to sign Arsenal’s Nuno Tavares close on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

One thing is for sure, Cooper’s team will have a late night tonight, with at least five potential incomings pending at the City Ground.
