Argentinian centre-back Juan Foyth could become Tottenham Hotspur’s second signing of this summer’s transfer window, according to reports.

The Guardian reported yesterday that Spurs are in advanced talks with Juan’s club Estudiantes.

By all accounts we’re prepared to pay £9m for the 19-year-old.

This story follows hot on the heels after THFC confirmed the signing of Davinson Sánchez from Ajax.

Some media outlets suggest Spurs are only willing to pay an initial £6.25m with the promise of the remaining £2.75m in performance related bonuses.

  • If true, I’m a lot more comfortable about this signing. The price is right and there is no expectation for him to contribute immediately. Why we are signing 2 South American CBs and no attacking players remains a good question though, when we already have the best CB pairing in the PL but only one goalscoring striker. I can only assume that more deals are in the works.

  • This deal is happening and he will be one for nect season.. Reserves and the odd cup appearance this season to develop more under Poch guidance. This is forward thinking from Spurs.
    Jan and Toby ate beasts but they won’t go on forever! Sanchez will be in first team as part of back 3 but him and Foyth (and CV) are the future.
    Unfortunately Carter Vickers isnt quite first team yet either but what a quality bunch of CB we will have. The young guys can learn so much from Toby and Jan.
    Let’s hope we can get an attacking player next! Someone like Martial would be amazing as can play wing or striker.. I just dont see Jansen being any different this season, my 5 year old daughter is quicker and has a better eye for goal.
    I’ve heard it may be January we go in for Barkley too now…

  • BelgianSpur – Maybe its about finding players we think are good enough at a price we can afford, always harder with attackers. We did try to sign Martial but if United won’t sell there isn’t a lot we can do. As I said before the signing of Sanchez and now maybe Foyth may indicate the club don’t think Toby will sign a new contract so they are sensibly preparing for the future.

  • Toby and Verts are getting older, I expect Toby three years left in him at his best and possibly another one or two for Verts, so the next two seasons we will look to improve our defensive options. I would say Sanchez is likely to be given some time this season, compete with vickers but also may be included in a three man defense and play in cups, and this lad will have this year to develop probably in the under 23’s and may be get some game time in the cups! I am not sure Toby will sign an extension, I think the older players really have to have faith in the club, manager and players to stick around because they are so good they know they can go elsewhere and win things and double their wages. I think Lloris has brought into Poch philospohy and has faith, but not sure about Toby, I think he is happy and has brought into Poch ways but I also wonder whether he really believes we can win things in the next couple of years, his best years left! I think this is the problem with Rose and Walker, they feel we are nearly there and by the time we get there they may well be past their best! very hard decision for players once they get to 27 ish and they still haven’t won anything. Still we may be pleasently suprised and see Toby sign at the end of the window, I hope so.

  • Signings like this are about thinking ahead, as It’sME points out, the oldest section of our team is the defence, so to have a younger crop of players coming up behind them, without the pressure of having to perform immediately, can only benefit the club. In Toby and Vertonghen, you probably couldn’t ask for a better pair of centre backs to learn from.

  • Does anyone rate the Southampton keeper at all? Really think he is no better than our previous young 3rd keepers. Disappointed by this.

  • @LuvWhites. We need a third goal keeper. Paulo Gazzaniga is a keeper which our goalkeeper coach Toni Jiminez knows well, from having worked with him at S’hampton. So imo this signing would make sense. Paulo spend last season at spanish side Rayo Vallencano, keeping 11 clean sheets in 32 appearances.

  • 33% clean sheets is impressive… how come Southampton don’t want to keep him?
    Also he’ll go from no 3 keeper there to no 3 here…. strange he’s not after regular footy at 25yrs.
    Hope he’s ok then!

  • LuvWhites … MP is on his way to your place to sign up your daughter. She’ll be set for life!

  • Allan – 11 clean sheets in the Spanish second division… That hardly compares to the quality he would be facing at Spurs. MP obviously feels we need an extra warm body there and that’s fair enough. I’d rather see the role given to a young keeper already at the club though, but MP must have his reasons and I doubt it’s going to break the bank. I don’t think Paulo is ever going to play a significant 1st team role though, or if he does, something has gone very wrong.

  • Reports today of Chelsea interest in Alderwiereld. Given his contract situation and his apparent restlessness, and modern day “player power”, we could conceivably lose him so Sanchez, Foyth, and CCV along with Dier would become important to us especially as Wimmer is apparently WBA bound. Please, please can we now look up front and possibly cover or competition for Eriksen/ Ali in any remaining business.
