Arsenal tipped to sign Brozovic

Spurs close-in on Foyth

Next up and the Guardian claim that Tottenham are hoping to wrap-up a £9m deal to sign Juan Foyth from Estudiantes over the coming days.

The north Londoners have been strongly linked with Foyth in recent months as Mauricio Pochettino looks to try and further strengthen his defensive options before the window closes.

The 19-year-old has been with Estudiantes his entire career having joined the clubs youth ranks and has progressed through the system to become a first team regular.

Foyth caught the eye of several top European clubs after playing for his country at the U20 World Cup earlier in the summer but it looks as though Spurs are now closing-in on his signature.

The Guardian claim that with Inter Milan and PSG also eyeing the centre-back, Tottenham have now entered advanced negotiations with Estudiantes over a £9m deal and hope to get the transfer wrapped-up over the coming days.
