Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as late competitors to sign Tottenham target Juan Foyth, according to reports in France.
Foyth was expected to move to Spurs for around £8 million this week, with some outlets suggesting he would rejoin current club Estudiantes on loan for six months.
But the 19-year-old defender is apparently the subject of a late bid from Ligue 1 giants PSG, who have reportedly agreed a similar fee with Estudiantes.
Multiple reports coming from Argentina overnight that PSG are set to land Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth for €9.5m.

There’s a good chance PSG will be able to offer Foyth a better salary than Tottenham, so who he joins could come down to which club can offer him a better development.
