According to Cadena COPE, Valencia are eyeing a move for Juan Foyth before the transfer window closes on October 5.
Reports over recent days have linked Foyth with a move to newly-promoted Fulham, with Scott Parker said to be intent on adding to his backline before the window closes (The Athletic’s David Ornstein).
Cadena COPE now reveals that the defender could be Valencia bound, with the La Liga club having identified him as one of two possible centre-back targets, along with Juventus’ Daniele Rugani.
The report claims that Valencia boss Javi Gracia likes Foyth due to his ability to play as a centre-back as well as a full-back and that the defender would be open to a move to the Mestalla.
While it is said that Foyth’s wages will not be a problem for Valencia, the transfer fee demanded by Spurs could be a hindrance in completing the deal.
It is asserted that Valencia will try to land the defender on an initial season-long loan deal, with an option to buy the 22-year-old permanently next summer.

I believe it would make much more sense to loan Foyth out as we are unlikely to get anywhere close to his real value if we sell him this summer. With a season of regular football under his belt, he could potentially be sold for a decent amount next summer even if Mourinho does not see him as a part of his plans.
