Barca target shock Juan Foyth move after Spurs offer defender to other clubs

first_imgBARCELONA have emerged as shock contenders to sign out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth, according to reports.The 22-year-old was highly-rated by former manager Mauricio Pochettino in North London.2 Foyth has been a rarely-spotted figure at Spurs this seasonCredit: ReutersBut since Jose Mourinho’s arrival, the ten-cap Argentina international has struggled to even make the substitutes’ bench – falling behind Japhet Tanganga in the pecking order.Having suffered an ankle injury in pre-season, Foyth had just returned to full fitness when Pochettino was axed – featuring in his compatriot’s final three games in charge.But he has only featured three times since – being completely cast aside by Mourinho following a mistake against Norwich City in December, after which the young centre-back was substituted at half-time.According to the Mirror, LaLiga champions Barcelona could rescue Foyth from his spell on the Spurs sidelines, seeing him as a cheap replacement for the seemingly outgoing Samuel Umtiti and Jean-Clair Todibo.A brave and talented distributor, Foyth would fit in to Barcelona’s traditional style of play.But his young career has been unfortunately littered with costly errors, having given away a number of goals – as well as being red carded at Bournemouth last season as a substitute.Having made only 32 appearances since moving to North London from Estudiantes in 2017, however, he has been unable to sustain a run of games in which to iron out his mistakes.And if they (Tottenham) won’t count on me, the best thing will be to find another club.Juan FoythAnd in the hunt for first-team football, he recently admitted that he could depart.He said: “You always want to play to feel like a player and feel good. It isn’t easy not to play either.”But I don’t know, we have to wait now for the transfer window to open.”If I am going to have opportunities here, I will be very comfortable. And if they won’t count on me, the best thing will be to find another club.”I would like to stay in Europe, all leagues have a high level.2 The Argentine was red-carded at Bournemouth last seasonCredit: AFP or licensorsMOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’PicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticNICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidsKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him”My wish is to play at the highest level as long as I can.
