19 year-old to make up Juan Foyth of Spurs’ defence?..

Tottenham have identified 19 year-old Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth as a potential star of the future, according to The Evening Standard.

Foyth made 4 appearances for Estudiantes de La Plata last season, following a promotion from the club’s second team in January 2017.

The central-defender featured in all 3 of Argentina’s group games at the Under-20 World Cup this summer. Argentina were placed in the same group as eventual winners England, who featured two current Spurs youngter Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Following one win and three defeats Argentina were eliminated at the group stages of the competition.

Tottenham set for talks this week

Former Chelsea and Manchester United player Juan Sebastián Verón, now club president of Estudiantes, is set to fly to London, and potentially Italy as well, this week along with Juan Foyth’s agents to further discuss a transfer of the promising, young defender.

Reports coming out of Argentina suggest that a deal could be worth around £8m, with the possibility of Juan Foyth joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side this week.
