Tottenham Hotspur are set to sanction a transfer for Juan Foyth amid interest from Leeds United, reports say.
Spurs struggled to a disappointing 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on the final day of the Premier League season, although they qualified for the Europa League in the process, but Foyth was nowhere to be seen.
According to The Sun, Leeds are preparing to launch a £15m bid for the defender irrespective of whether Marcelo Bielsa brings Ben White back to Elland Road as well.
Foyth’s future at Tottenham looks far from certain as his agent recently revealed he will make a decision following the conclusion of the campaign.
He has made a full recovery from a meniscal injury, although he was an unused substitute in the 3-1 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, before being dropped from the squad altogether for the London derby at Selhurst Park.
The Argentine, who was once considered a Mauricio Pochettino prodigy, has fallen out of favour with his successor, as he has featured just twice for Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese succeeded Pochettino in November.
Bielsa is keen to recruit his compatriot, as he believes the 22-year-old would strengthen his newly-promoted squad, and it is unlikely the Lilywhites will stand in his way.
So far Foyth has failed to convince Mourinho he is worth keeping while Bielsa has a habit of developing young talent as he has arguably transformed the Peacocks by giving players like Kalvin Phillips a chance to prove themselves.
Regardless of whether or not Bielsa will be able to get the best out of him, this should benefit Mourinho, as his sale will generate some much-needed funds in the transfer market.
Tottenham fans, do you think Daniel Levy should let Foyth leave for Elland Road? Let us know down below!
