If there’s one word that describes what the end of this transfer window feels like, it’s “frantic.” Lots of rumors floating in the air, little of anything concrete, and still a metric ton of business to do before the window slams shut on Friday.
So it’s not good news when a potential deal falls apart, but that’s what it looks like has happened with Japhet Tanganga and his mooted move to Torino. According to Charlie Eccleshire in The Athletic, it’s more like Tori-NO as the clubs couldn’t come to an agreement.
Tanganga to Torino not happening after the Italian club and Spurs couldn't find an agreement. Always a chance these things can be revived closer to the deadline, but for now it's said to be offhttps://t.co/LWkfo0UczQ— Charlie Eccleshare (@CDEccleshare) August 30, 2023
I’m sure there are plenty of other Italian clubs that Tang Gang can be linked to before Friday, right? Three of them haven’t panned out but there’s still 17 left in Serie A alone. Surely there’s some club on the boot somewhere that’d take a homegrown English footballer who doesn’t play Ange-Ball but who seems like a perfectly awesome kid.
