West Ham United are considering making a move for Tottenham defender Juan Foyth before transfer deadline day.
David Moyes, West Ham manager, is looking to reinforce his squad in several key areas before the window closes, and, having already enquired about taking Kyle Walker-Peters on loan, has turned his attention to Foyth after learning that Jose Mourinho is willing to let him leave.
Signed in 2017 from Estudiantes by Foyth’s compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, he has made only 3 appearances since Mourinho took charge of the club, and has not featured since being subbed off at half-time in the 2 – 2 draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road in December.
Unhappy at his lack of first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane, Foyth, who has 8 international caps for Argentina, is open to a move, and his ability to play at right-back as well as a conventional centre-half, makes him a potentially valuable acquisition.
