Tottenham Hotspur could be forced to sell Juan Foyth this summer after just three years in north London, according to reports.
Tottenham and Southampton agreed a fee for Saints star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg last week, with the midfielder set to undergo a medical in north London.
According to football.london’s Alasdair Gold, Spurs must sell some foreign players if they want to bring in new signings in the summer. Foyth faces a further problem, as he is now too old to qualify for Tottenham’s B list in European competition.
The Lilywhites will reach the limit of foreign players in their squad for the Europa League qualifiers once Hojbjerg’s signing is completed, which will put the 22-year-old Argentine defender in a spot of bother.
The 10-cap Argentina international has fallen out of favour with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, who considers him surplus to requirements, while Leeds United remain interested in signing the former Mauricio Pochettino prodigy.
He has been tipped to make a move to Elland Road to link up with his fellow countryman Marcelo Bielsa, who was a mentor to Pochettino in the past.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy must decide whether he will find Foyth a loan move to improve his chances of playing regularly or cut his losses and sell him in the summer. At this stage in his career, he needs to be playing regular first team football, which is something that Mourinho is not prepared to provide.
For whatever reason, it hasn’t worked out for Foyth during his time in the Premier League lately, as he has featured just twice in the top flight for the Portuguese since he succeeded Pochettino last November. His contract will run out in 2022 and Spurs should sell him to raise some much-needed funds to reinvest in the transfer market.
