Tottenham Hotspur have been very short at right-back over the last couple of weeks, both in the Premier League and the Champions League.
Spurs took the decision to sell their first team right back in the form of Kieran Trippier, but just like when they sold Kyle Walker, they did not invest in a replacement.
This left academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters taking the starting spot for the first three matches of the season.
When KWP picked up an injury, Davinson Sanchez covered at right-back, before Serge Aurier returned against Crystal Palace, picking up two assists.
Sanchez was back in again against Olympiacos in the Champions League this week, but one option open to Pochettino has yet to appear at all this season.
Young Juan Foyth recently converted to a right-back for the Argentina national team in the Copa America and has played there once for Spurs.
However, he has missed the start of the season through injury and suspension. Football London have now read between the lines and believe that he may be fit and ready to be selected as Spurs failed to mention him in their latest injury update.
? @LoCelsoGiovani (hip) – continuing on-field rehabilitation.
