Villarreal boss Emery wants Spurs defender Juan Foyth

Villarreal have made Tottenham defender Juan Foyth their number one target for the backline, according to AS.

Foyth, 22, is one of the best prospects of Argentine football despite struggling for game time at Spurs.

Scouts from Villarreal have been following Foyth since his time at Estudiantes and remain high on him.

Unai Emery intends to strengthen Villarreal’s right-back position and sees Foyth as the perfect fit.

Foyth joined Spurs for around €12m in 2017, but has made just 16 appearances in the Premier League in the past three seasons.

The main obstacle for Villarreal is the fact Spurs are reluctant to let Foyth leave on a permanent deal.

However, Jose Mourinho does not seem to count on Foyth, which could open the door for Villarreal.

Foyth was linked with a loan move to Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds earlier in the summer, but they have since signed Germany defender Robin Koch.
