Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth could be on his way out this month, with reports claiming he could join Hellas Verona on loan.

Verona are looking to solidify the squad that has seen them maintain a position in the top half upon their return to Serie A.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Sport Witness), the Italian side are interested in taking Foyth from Spurs on loan with an option to buy.

Their offer could be for a permanent transfer in the region of €10m following the completion of a six-month loan.

Foyth joined Tottenham from Estudiantes two years ago for around £8m, but has made just 30 appearances in all competitions since then.

The 22-year-old is under contract until 2022, but has started just once in the Premier League this season – and he only lasted until half-time.

His agent, Claudio Curti, has already revealed that the defender is considering a move away from Spurs this month – despite Jose Mourinho insisting there was “no chance” of a departure.
