Tottenham losing Foyth would be inexcusable amidst defensive uncertainty
Tottenham Hotspur are at risk of making a woeful decision if they allow Juan Foyth to leave the club in January as he seeks first-team chances.
The Evening Standard states the 20-year-old, who was part of Argentina’s senior squad during the international break, is considering his future in North London after struggling for regular appearances in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Signed in 2017, Foyth is yet to make his Premier League debut for the Lilywhites and has been limited to just three appearances for Spurs – playing twice in the EFL Cup and once in the Champions League next season.
It is therefore not surprising that the young defender is considering his future but Tottenham could find themselves in a defensive nightmare if they allow the former Estudiantes talent to leave in the New Year, as further departures could be on the cards.
Toby Alderweireld continues to be heavily linked with a departure after entering the final year of his contract and an exit seems likely, as Spurs would activate a £25m release clause if they extend his deal by a further 12 months.
Jan Vertonghen has also entered the last year of his deal with the Lilywhites and there is no sign of an extension being agreed, which could leave Pochettino’s side extremely short of options at the back.
