Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement with Argentinian side Estudiantes de La Plata for the signing of central-defender Juan Foyth, who will sign a five-year contract with the club.
Having wrapped up a club-record deal with Ajax for the signing of Davinson Sanchez, Spurs have no sooner moved on to their next target.
Foyth to Tottenham has been an ongoing saga this summer and looks to have reached its conclusion finally.
The defender at one stage looked poised to join Paris Saint-Germain.
However, reports kept surfacing that the 19-year-old wanted to join Tottenham instead.

Juan Foyth is understood to have had his head turned by fellow countryman Mauricio Pochettino.
The Spurs boss talked with Foyth about a move and convinced him to pick North London over Paris (he really must be ‘magic’ like they sing!).
Foyth also made the decision based on playing time, believing he’d get more minutes at Tottenham.
Two in one out
After signing Sanchez and possibly Foyth, Tottenham appear to on the verge of offloading Kevin Wimmer.
Wimmer looks set to join West Brom for a fee of around £15m.
This would turn Spurs over a nice £11m profit, after signing him from FC Koln back in 2015 for £4m.
