Reports: Milan join Barcelona in race to sign Spurs defender almost certain for exit

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and two Spanish clubs have a concrete interest in signing a versatile Spurs defender in the upcoming window, a report claims.

It was reported by the Daily Mail last December that Foyth was ‘being lined up for a move to Italy’, with both Milan clubs and Roma interested in the 22-year-old.

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.

Now, Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic on Twitter has stated that Milan are one of three clubs that have a ‘strong interest’ in signing Foyth from Spurs this summer.

He cites a report back in December which claimed that Foyth would leave if he didn’t get more game time, and he is yet to play in 2020 suggesting the situation has not changed and a possible transfer could be on the cards.

Back in February, claimed that the Argentine was offered to Milan in a swap deal and was valued at over €20m, while Barcelona have recently been linked.
