It would be an understatement to say that Bruno Fernandes is hot property this January, with the Sporting Lisbon star again finding himself at the centre of interest from Premier League clubs, and Tottenham are seemingly keen on the Portuguese international.
Tottenham are considering including Juan Foyth as part of a swap deal for Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes.
Foyth’s agent has already claimed the defender is open to a move this January: “We are evaluating the possibility of going out in the January market”

Football London report that Spurs might tempt Sporting Lisbon to part with their star asset if they offer defender Juan Foyth in any deal for Fernandes on loan, with the Argentine youngster hardly featuring for the north London club this season as stats from Transfermarkt show.
Will we have a big transfer window?
With interest in Fernandes hotting up this window, Spurs might have to act quickly if they are to get a deal done for the attacking midfielder, and some supporters on social media are keen on Foyth being included in a deal for the 25-year-old.
Here’s what a few Spurs fans had to say on Twitter about Foyth being added as leverage in a deal for Fernandes…
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LEVY!

I like Foyth, but Tanganga’s display vs Liverpool was more than encouraging, and Jose doesn’t fancy him at LB even if his national team do. So if him going gets us Bruno then I hope it happens.
We need creativity and goals – Bruno offers both

With Taganga showing so well yesterday and Foyth’s tendency to make critical mistakes, I would gladly accept this switch!
