Report: Tottenham offer Juan Foyth and Victor Wanyama to AC Milan

The duo have found themselves down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham have offered AC Milan the chance to sign peripheral figures Victor Wanyama and Juan Foyth, as Jose Mourinho begins planning a summer reshaping of his squad (Calciomercato).

Neither of the out-of-favour pair have featured much at all under Mourinho and both are well down the Tottenham pecking order.

Wanyama, 28 has made just four appearances in all competitions this season and was subject to some interest during the January transfer window.

Argentine defender Foyth has made seven appearances throughout the campaign but hasn’t been in an of the last five Premier League squads selected by Mourinho.

Getting Wanyama off the wage bill would be ideal. He is paid £65,000-a-week and hasn’t really lived up to the hype he promised when he signed for £11 million from Southampton in 2016 (BBC).

Milan are currently 10th in the Serie A table and it seems likely that Stefano Pioli will seek new additions during the summer transfer window.

The report, however, does claim that the Italian giants don’t currently have an interest in taking either player off Tottenham’s hands.

 

That might change at the end of the season. Milan face losing out on European football once again and that could see many of their top stars decide to head for pastures new.

Wanyama and Foyth might not be the only two Spurs players who Mourinho decides to offload during the summer.

The Portuguese will want to make his mark on his squad and it could be an exciting transfer window for supporters.

TBR View – Wanyama must be sold but are Tottenham a bit premature with Foyth

Wanyama is now 28-years-old and it’s probably best for all parties that he heads to a club who can give him more first-team football.

Foyth, however, is an interesting one. Tottenham aren’t blessed with lots of central defenders and if Jan Vertonghen leaves in the summer that area looks even more depleted.

The Argentine is still only 22 and can play in a number of positions, alongside his natural centre-back duties.

He isn’t paid a fortune by the club and the man with 11 caps for Argentina could perhaps still do a job for Spurs.
