Italian outfit Hellas Verona have reportedly submitted a loan offer for Tottenham defender Juan Foyth.

Foyth has struggled for game time since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and has made just one start in the Premier League.

Even in his solitary start against Norwich City, Mourinho took the defender off at half time after making a mistake which led to the Canaries first goal in the 2-2 draw and has not seen a minute of action since.

A report by Sports Mole reveals that Hellas Verona have made contact with chairman Daniel Levy over a short-term deal with the North Londoners open to allowingthe Argentine leave on loan.

The Serie A club, who boast of one of the best defensive records in the division, have reportedly guaranteed that Foyth would play 70% of the games until the end of the season.

Verona’s offer reportedly also contains an £8.4m million option to make the deal is permanent in the summer.

Foyth is said to be open to moving away as he feels he needs to get more games under his belt in order to make Argentina’s squad for the Copa America on home soil this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

I think a loan move would suit all parties but I don’t believe it is wise to give Hellas Verona an option to buy, particularly for as little as £8.4m million. While Foyth has seemed like a liability on occasions, it is clear that he has an abundance of talent. A loan move to the Serie A could do wonders for his development.
