Tottenham, PSG & Juan Foyth
It’s yet to be confirmed as official, but according to reports from Argentina this weekend, Tottenham are set to announce yet another signing.
Tottenham, who face Chelsea at Wembley in the Premier League on Sunday, are now getting going in the transfer market.
Davinson Sanchez became the club’s record signing last week when the Colombian joined Tottenham from Ajax.
And, it seems that Mauricio Pochettinho will continue boosting his backline options by adding Estudiantes central-half Juan Foyth as well.
Fears for Toby Alderweireld
While Tottenham fans will be happy with their fresh defensive options, do they also need to be concerned about Toby Alderweireld?
In December, there were reports that Alderweireld had a contract clause that would allow him to leave Spurs for 25 million pounds.
While, last Friday, the Daily Mail suggested that Man City could swoop in for the Spurs star.
Are Tottenham adding Sanchez, and possibly Foyth, as they know Alderweireld could be on the way out of the club?
Deal with Estudiantes
Either way, Argentine news outlet Todo Noticias have reported that Estudiantes have finalised negotiations with Spurs over the Juan Foyth deal.
It’s reported that Foyth is joining Tottenham in a €10.5 million deal. The 19-year-old will sign a five-year contract with Tottenham.
Todo Noticias further note that PSG were also in the running for Foyth, however the player decided he preferred to move to Spurs.
Foyth made 4 appearances for Estudiantes last season, following a promotion from the club’s second team in January 2017.
The central-defender also featured in all three of Argentina’s group games at the Under-20 World Cup this summer.
