Jose Mourinho is ready to allow Spurs defender Juan Foyth to leave the club this summer, according to reports in Spain.
It is clear that Foyth does not form part of Jose Mourinho’s plans at Spurs having not kicked a ball for the club in 2020, while he has not been in a single Premier League or Champions League squad since being hauled off at half-time of the 2-2 draw with Norwich in December.
A report back in May claimed that Argentine defender was heading for a north London exit with the 22-year-old looking for more minutes.
Atalanta, Fiorentina and AC Milan were all understood to be interested in taking him to Italy at the time with Tottenham wanting between €12m (£10.6m) and €15m (£13.2m) to allow him to leave.
There were even rumours in the same month that Barcelona were considering a surprise transfer for Foyth.
And now Spanish publication AS (via Sport Witness) claim that Villarreal are weighing up a move for the defender with the La Liga club monitoring his progress since his time at Estudiantes in Argentina.
The report adds that Mourinho ‘discards’ Foyth but suggests that Tottenham are not as convinced about letting the Argentina international leave permanently.
Villarreal are keen to bring Foyth to Spain but the report hints that a loan move may be more realistic.
