Juan Foyth’s agent has admitted that the Argentine may have to quit Tottenham this summer, amidst speculation surrounding the defender’s future.

There were high expectations on Foyth coming into the campaign but he has endured an extremely disappointing season.

The young defender was sidelined with an injury for the first few months of the season and hasn’t been handed opportunities to impress by Jose Mourinho.

Multiple reports over the past few weeks have suggested that the 22-year-old is on his way out of Spurs.

Mundo Deportivo claimed that the Argentine has been offered to several clubs around Europe, including Barcelona.

Foyth himself admitted towards the end of March that he might have to leave Tottenham in order to continue his development (TNT).

The Spurs star’s agent, Claudio Curti has now indicated that he will sit down with the club for talks over the defender’s future.

When asked if Foyth has a future at Spurs with Mourinho in charge, Curti told talkSPORT, “For what has happened in recent times, we don’t think so.

“But we still have a pending talk with Tottenham to clarify the future.

“We don’t judge the coach’s decisions and we don’t get involved in his job, but what’s clear is that the club’s project with Juan has changed.

“We have a pending chat with Tottenham and for sure the topic will come up.

“If he can’t have minutes in Tottenham we will have to look at the best options for him to develop and play anywhere else.

“Juan is grateful to Tottenham, but he needs to have more minutes to grow as a player and he also needs to hold his place in the national team. The only way to do that is to compete.

“Surely he is not happy, but he is a professional, and he will finish the season in the best way.”

It is clear based on reports that Foyth is likely to be on his way out this summer along with the likes of Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters as Jose looks to reshape the backline. The emergence of Tanganga has proved to be the final nail in the coffin for Foyth’s chances of becoming a regular at Spurs.
