Leeds fans are loving Marcelo Bielsa’s first move as their new boss, as reports suggest Tottenham’s Juan Foyth is a target this summer.
You only have to look at what Spurs fans say about Foyth to realise what an incredible prospect the young centre back is, and Leeds fans are rightfully loving the links to the youngster.
According to South American outlet Varsky Sports, Bielsa wants to use his Argentinian connections to bring Foyth to Elland Road on a one-year loan deal.
Bielsa has a great relationship with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, so it would be no surprise to see some youngsters from North London on loan with Leeds next season.

The new Leeds boss is known for his 3-3-3-1 formation, which will of course require multiple top quality centre backs to carry out in the Championship.
Foyth is very highly regarded by everyone at Tottenham, and the thought of the 20 year-old Argentine linking up with Pontus Jansson and the heavily linked Kyle Bartley in a three-man defence is certainly enticing.
Fans are very excited about the dawn of a new era at Elland Road, and they would love Foyth to be the first man through the door this summer.
