Tottenham could have received a boost in their bid to offload Juan Foyth this summer as the Argentinean isn’t considered a part of Jose Mourinho’s plan at the club.
The South American was a favourite of former Spurs’ boss, Mauricio Pochettino and he had started to build a career for himself under the Argentine boss.
However, since the sacking of his compatriot and the naming of Mourinho as the new Spurs’ boss, he has found chances hard to come by.
He has been linked with a move away from the Premier League to other teams and former Leeds United star turned pundit Noel Whelan reckons his former club should snap the 22-year-old up.
The Whites are battling to return to the Premier League at the end of this season after they fell just short last term.
They will look to bolster their team when they return to the English topflight and they have been urged to sign Foyth as soon as possible, by Whelan so that he can have a preseason with them.
He told Football Insider: “It is really important we get him in early so he can have somewhat of a preseason with the squad.
“Bielsa had a good relationship with Pochettino at Tottenham as well as Pep Guardiola at Manchester City so that deal was always on the cards.
“He never made it any secret that he was interested in that player but he was needed at Tottenham during that spell.
“Now Pochettino has gone and Mourinho has come in, he is not wanted.
“It would be a great signing. An Argentina international at a great age and he knows what the Premier League is all about. It would be a shrewd bit of business if they can get it done now.
“It would be one body in place for next season if we cannot lure Ben White back to Leeds.”
