Tottenham are expected to complete their third signing of the summer with Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth due in London later today after being convinced by Mauricio Pochettino, according to El Dia.
Tottenham in action
As we write, Tottenham are in action Burnley at Wembley in the Premier League.
The club’s fortunes at the national stadium have been incredibly disappointing.
Manager Pochettino is, therefore, looking for additions to improve their fortunes as they face a whole season there.
Third summer signing
Tottenham have so far completed just two signings this summer with the window soon set to shut.
Davinson Sanchez from Ajax and Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzanigaiga have been signed.
The duo were presented to the Tottenham home crowd at Wembley this afternoon.

Spurs are now looking to follow the pair up with the signing of Juan Foyth.
Pochettino looks set to add his second central-defender of the summer following up Sanchez with the signing of Juan Foyth.
He appears keen to bolster his options in central defence with ambitions of playing three-at-the-back.
Last season, Dier was deployed on the right-side of three central-defenders.
Pochettino would rather the England international was used in midfield and the signing Sanchez relieved Dier of this duty.
Sanchez and Foyth also offer Pochetino the option of having two defenders to replace either Vertonghen or Alderweireld when playing just two center-backs.
Like Pochettino, Foyth is an Argentine central-defender.
He showed much promise during his short stint in the first-team at the Argentinian club.
Earlier this summer he was being tracked by PSG but appears to be set to join Tottenham.
Pochettino is understood to have called him at least six times to convince him to join.
