Report: AC Milan one of three Italian clubs chasing 21-year-old Spurs starlet

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of three Serie A clubs interested in a January move for Spurs defender Juan Foyth, according to reports in England.

We recently revealed in an exclusive from Vito Angele that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new centre-back following the achilles tendon injury sustained by Leo Duarte.

At the moment it seems like Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo is the most likely option, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that the player has given the green light to complete a move to Milan.

According to the Daily Mirror though, Paolo Maldini and co. are not turned off regarding other potential market opportunities.

The English outlet claims that Tottenham’s Juan Foyth is ‘being lined up for a move to Italy’, with both Milan clubs and Roma interested in the 21-year-old.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho appeared to rule out any chance of an exit for the Argentine on Monday, however the fact that he has made just six competitive appearances this season suggests that Milan may have a chance if a suitable offer is made.

Foyth – formerly of Estudiantes and with a Spanish passport – can play both centre-back and right-back, something which could be ideal for the Rossoneri given their struggles in both positions this season.
