Sources close to the club tell the Harry Hotspur blog that behind the scenes, Tottenham are very much still looking for ways to bolster José Mourinho’s depleted first team squad. A particularly favoured idea is to move on Juan Foyth.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, it was mooted that Foyth was being groomed to play in a right-sided wing back role – as he does for Argentina – to ease the frustrations that came with Serge Aurier.
However, this never really happened.
Foyth’s departure has so far been hindered as Tottenham have been looking for a clean sale, whereas early responses from the market have only responded favourably to the possibility of a loan deal.
This, combined with the ongoing business of trying to “re-home” Christian Eriksen before his value completely evaporates, isn’t making life any easier during this traditionally difficult window.
Recently, Claudio Curti the boy’s agent revealed to Interdipendenza that there was a possibility of the 22-year-old making a move, and that he was waiting to get “clarity” from Spurs.
