Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth spoke to the Argentine media on Monday.
Interviewed by TyC Sports, the 22-year-old was repeatedly asked about the transfer rumours which have been surrounding him for the past couple of months.
With the gossip of a departure from Spurs growing, Boca Juniors have been reported as one of the possible destinations for Foyth, but the player claims that a return to Argentina isn’t something he’s looking forward to at the moment.
“My agents told me nothing of Boca’s interest. Yes, journalists asked me but I told them that my first option is to stay in Europe,” Foyth told TyC.
However, Foyth was pretty straightforward when talking about his future. Instead of pretending he’s staying at Tottenham for next season, the defender was very open about the options he has.
“I don’t think about going back to Argentina. Right now it’s best to stay in Europe. It’s what I want and what the club will surely look for, either with a sale or a loan. For my future and because the dream of every player is to be in Europe, the best thing is to stay here and seek continuity.”
Foyth only played 262 minutes for Tottenham this season, with four appearances in the Premier League and three more in the Champions League.
The Argentine international hasn’t made an appearance since December, and it doesn’t appear that he’s key in José Mourinho’s plans.
