Juan Foyth is yet to discuss his short-term future at Tottenham, but wants to fight his place next season, according to The Athletic’s Charlie ‪Eccleshare.

The 22-year-old still has two years remaining on his current deal and has already been heavily linked with newly-promoted Leeds United and perhaps a slightly more ambitious move to Barcelona this summer.

With Mauricio Pochettino having not signed a right-back last summer to replace the departing Kieran Trippier, Foyth look in pole position to become the club’s first-choice right-back for the 2019-2020 campaign.

However, the Argentinian suffered a serious ankle injury in the Audi Cup against Bayern Munich in pre-season and would miss the opening 10 weeks of the season.

Foyth made just seven appearances in total for Spurs last term – with the last of those ending abruptly as he was hauled off at half-time during Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Norwich City in December and hasn’t appeared since.

Having not played a single minute in 2020, Foyth’s future in north London looked bleak, but The Athletic believe that the versatile defender is willing to stick around and try and work his way into Jose Mourinho’s plans next season rather than move elsewhere.



  1. No spurs fan wants him. The number of fouls and penalties or goal-leading mistakes this boy makes is a joke. is it incompetent

    • Totally disagree. He is a quality player who can be developed and could certainly play in midfield. He simply needs to iron out his errors

      • Still, Aurier was our 3rd best player (whoscored), he had five assists, 2nd on that list – Son 1st with 10 assists.

        Two MotM together with Moura, Kane and Son got four each. Thats the top four..

        Not that bad right!?.

        • So he’s the 3rd best player as defined by the number of assists? Do me a favour,he’s not even our 3rd best right back. First and foremost he’s a defender and a pretty dogshit one too, as defined by ‘would any of the top 10 teams in the Premier League want him in their team?’ He has licence to go forward and deliver crosses all day long, yet only managed 5 assists out of 38 league games. Compare that to Robertson or Trent Arnold. He’s desperate to go to Italy where he won’t be asked to do half the work he does in the Premier. Cannot wait to see the back of him

    • you don`t get to watch many games do you nope?
      oh, and really impressive that you have spoken to every spurs fan to gauge their opinion!

  2. Agree 100% with Mark and Albania.
    Has great ability but needs an extended run in the side.
    Loan him out no problem, but on no account should he be sold.

  3. He is still young, will only get better. Try him as full back or as back up holding midfielder. If he develops his price will double.

    • It doesn’t matter about his assists, he’s a defender and it’s about his mistakes that lead to goals ,and there are to many. Get shot of. So many better replacements outside there

      • Poor guy has needs time and a run in the team there is a good player in there, but his confidence is shot. The so call brilliant Poch didn’t do a great job with him did he. Remember what Bale was like in the first two years. I’m not comparing him to Bale but we have a lot worse players in the side now. COYS

  4. He’s still very young and will need time to develop, Spurs should definitely keep him, I’m sure his price will rise significantly COYS

  5. Foyth is an International RB and could save the club millions. Challenge remains homegrown element of the squad, if Aurier is sold as seems likely Aaron’s would be most likely along with Tanganga to fight for that role. Personally I see Tanganga in that role with Sessengnon playing in an Aurier role but on the left and Tanganga playing a Davies role on the right.

  6. Fourth has quality, he just needs developing, any good coach would be able to see and do this. Argentina play him at right back! I hope he stays and we developing him into a first class player.
