Tottenham close in on Argentina starlet Foyth

Tottenham Hotspur are on the vergeof signing Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth.

According to Sky Sports, Spurs are currently in talks with the Argentina club's president and former Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron over a deal worth roughly £8m.

The 19-year old has played just five senior matches for Estudiantes, but his exploits for the Argentina U20 are believed to have been enough to impress Mauricio Pochettino.

Foyth's move would be subject to getting a work permit.

It is expected that Foyth will join Tottenham's U23 and become an understudy of Toby Alderweireld.
