Marcelo Bielsa asks Mauricio Pochettino about Leeds United target Juan Foyth


Marcelo Bielsa has contacted Mauricio Pochettino for information regarding summer target Juan Foyth, according to Football Insider.

The Tottenham Hotspur defender is highly-rated in North London but has found regular first team opportunities hard to come by.

That has led to reports from reputable Argentine publication El Dia that Leeds could be readying a move.

It claims that Spurs would be open to letting him leave as he searches for more regular first team opportunities.

Whether that's on a permanent deal or a loan switch, it's claimed that Leeds United are one of the clubs who are tracking his progress.

It has, however, been suggested that Foyth could prioritise a move to La Liga over one to Elland Road, with the Spanish speaking star keen to experience life in Spain.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

A move for Juan Foyth would certainly fit the bill at Elland Road.

The defender is exactly the sort of player who you could see fitting into Marcelo Bielsa's set-up with Leeds United, and that's very encouraging.

Foyth has experience in the Premier League which could be key for Bielsa's side next term, however whether a move can be finalised will be decided in the coming weeks and months.

A lot will depend on the future of Ben White as he certainly looks to be a priority for Leeds United.
