Earlier this month, we covered a story in the Argentinian press that Juan Foyth, currently at Tottenham, was potentially looking for a way out in January.
The news came from his agent, Claudio Curti, who spoke to Inter Dipendenza, but the transfer stories surrounding the young defender have been scarce.
That is, however, until Wednesday, two days before the end of the transfer window, as Hellas Verona in Serie A, currently ninth, are interested in his services.
Gazzetta dello Sport are the ones reporting it, as they explain the Italians are ‘thinking’ about the 22-year-old, with a free loan and a view to buy at €10m.
Seeing as Foyth arrived at Spurs two years ago for a fee of close to £12m, only getting €10m back for a talented young player doesn’t sound like something Daniel Levy would go for, even if the Argentina international’s only made seven appearances this season.
We’ll have to wait and see, as this is the first we’ve heard of the interest, but with just 48 or so hours left in the window, things could speed up considerably depending on Verona’s interest.
