Tottenham Hotspur have offered both Victor Wanyama and Juan Foyth to AC Milan ahead of the summer transfer window, per Calciomercato.
The two players were available in the January transfer window, per sources, but there were no bids tabled for either.
Now the report claims that Milan have been given the chance to sign them when the window reopens, with neither in Jose Mourinho’s plans as the season progresses.
The Italian club, however, are not said to be convinced by the prospect of a double deal; Wanyama is considered too similar to defensive midfielder Franck Kessie, while Spurs would want to receive €20m (£16.6m) for the Argentine defender.
Spurs’ summer plans are clearly taking shape here.
It is not unusual for a club to ask another side if they would like to do a deal for a player ahead of a transfer window opening and it is clear that neither Wanyama or Foyth are in the Portuguese’s plans.
The two have made six appearances in the Premier League this season combined and have played a total of 45 minutes under Mourinho in the top-flight.
Those minutes have come from Foyth; Wanyama has only appeared under Mourinho against Bayern Munich in a Champions League dead rubber.
Chairman Daniel Levy, then, is getting his ducks in a row. That’s a good thing as the window looms.
