Juan Foyth could leave Tottenham Hotspur this month as the club attempt to reduce the amount of foreign players in their squad, sources have told Football FanCast.
The young defender has struggled for minutes this season and has made just three appearances under manager Jose Mourinho, playing 90 minutes in the Champions League dead rubber against Bayern Munich and a total of 46 minutes versus Wolves and Norwich City. Against the Canaries, he was substituted at half-time.
Sources familiar with Spurs’ recruitment have told FFC that the club are actively attempting to move the 22-year-old out of the club, either on loan or on a permanent basis in this transfer window.
La Liga club Real Betis, from whom Spurs loaned Giovani Lo Celso in the summer, hold an interest in signing the centre-back, who has won 11 caps for Argentina.
Spurs currently have 17 non-locally trained players in their Champions League squad, per Football.London, but that number has increased to 18 with the signing of Gedson Fernandes from Benfica.
As a result, Spurs are making an attempt to move out a number of players and Foyth is perhaps the headline name that could depart north London.
Sources have also confirmed that Victor Wanyama is available, though no bids have yet been received for the former Celtic midfielder, while there is optimism that Christian Eriksen will leave the club before the end of the transfer window.
Inter Milan are in talks with the club over a January deal and it is said to have become a “priority” for Spurs to get that transfer over the line.

Michel Vorm, the goalkeeper re-signed earlier this season after Hugo Lloris’ elbow injury, could also be allowed to leave given the Frenchman’s impending return to fitness.
While a number of players have been offered to Tottenham in recent days, including the striker Ze Luis, their current priority is to shift out the deadwood.
Meanwhile, another club have entered the race for Christian Eriksen!
