Barca were initially interested in signing his teammate Tanguy Ndombele, although they are reportedly hesitant to sign the Argentinian defender due to his lack of minutes under Jose Mourinho.
Ever since he arrived in North London from Club Estudiantes de La Plata for £8m in 2017, Foyth was touted as a prodigy of former boss Mauricio Pochettino, but now finds himself out of favour with the Argentine’s successor.
Indeed, he has struggled to make much of an impact at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and has only played in one game in the Premier League for Mourinho’s side all season, finding himself below Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in the pecking order (Transfermarkt).
The Argentinian international has made 32 appearances for the Lilywhites in total, but it appears Daniel Levy is ready to try and recoup some of the funds he spent on the 22-year-old.
Who has been Daniel Levy's worst signing at Tottenham Hotspur?
Predictably, plenty of Spurs fans reacted to Foyth’s ‘terrible’ transfer update, and one supporter lamented the “bad decision.”
Have a read through some of the mixed reactions down below…
Well that’s a terrible decision

Not quite got the pace required and quickness of thought to be a top top defender in my opinion

I think he’s a good player. Needs confidence

Has made errors but a good defender, very good on the ball & bags of potential. I’d play him as DCM. Cut out the unnecessary risks and with a run of games I’m sure will be very good indeed. He was MOM at Bayern made a costly error at Norwich so is left out whereas Aurier?!

It’s such as shame that things didn’t work out for him, he plays pretty well for Argentina as right back and seemed to be Poch’s solution to that problem
