Barcelona is considering incorporating a defender to reinforce its team in the face of restarting activity and, according to European sports media, one of those targeted would be Juan Foyth, the former Estudiantes player.
The coach Quique Setien has been observing variants for the rear and the name of the young defender who started in the punctured team and was summoned several times for the Argentine National Team emerged among the names.
As reported by “Mundo Deportivo”, the name of the central marker (although he can also act as a right-back), 22, was approached at the Barça decision table. Arisen from the lower divisions of Students, it was bought by Tottenham in June 2017 in exchange for 12,500,000 euros.
From there, under the technical direction of Mauricio Pochettino, he alternated in the starting lineup for a team that reached the Champions League final last season. However, in 2019/2020, the British cast lowered their performance, the Argentine coach had to leave, and with José Mourinho on the bench the opportunities were stunted for Foyth.
