    Tottenham pave way for smart signing as they await £15m windfall

    Tottenham are ready to sell Juan Foyth on a permanent basis in order to make room for top defensive target Joachim Andersen, a report claims.

    Upgrading their defensive options is a priority issue for Tottenham this summer. Whoever becomes their next head coach will want a stronger backline and that means new players. But before they can spend, they must sell some of their current players.

    According to The Telegraph, Spurs are likely to show the door to Foyth this summer. He is currently on loan with Villarreal and the Spaniards want to make the move permanent.

    Foyth joined Tottenham from Estudiantes in 2017. However, he barely featured for the club under either Mauricio Pochettino or Jose Mourinho. Hence, they sent him on loan to La Liga in September.

    The move has worked out well for Foyth, who has contributed to a team that has reached the Europa League final. He has found more continuity with Villarreal, making 31 appearances in all competitions.

    Thus, The Telegraph claim that the Yellow Submarine will look to activate their option to buy Foyth this summer. That will put around £15m in Tottenham’s pockets.

    Marseille are also interested in Foyth but will not be able to stop him joining Villarreal if they meet the required clause.

    As and when Tottenham receive the money for Foyth, they will then be able to pursue Andersen. The Denmark international has impressed on loan at Fulham from Lyon this season and could stay in the Premier League.

    Lyon could ask for around €30m to sell Andersen this summer. Spurs are one of the main contenders for his signature.

    Intriguingly, Fulham boss Scott Parker is one of the candidates to take over at Tottenham this summer. If that happens, Andersen may be more likely to make the move due to the connection they have built up at Craven Cottage.

    Levy offers manager hints

    Meanwhile, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says that the search to find the club’s new manager is ongoing, while naming three traits Mourinho’s successor must have.

    Levy offered an update on the hunt in his message to supporters ahead of their return for Wednesday’s clash with Aston Villa.

    While promising to make decisions in the “long-term interests” of the club, he told the matchday programme: “We shall focus on the recruitment of a new Head Coach.

    “We are acutely aware of the need to select someone whose values reflect those of our great Club and return to playing football with the style for which we are known – free-flowing, attacking and entertaining – whilst continuing to embrace our desire to see young players flourish from our Academy alongside experienced talent.”
