Leeds United fans have been reacting on Twitter after it was reported that Juan Foyth is likely to leave Tottenham in the summer amid interest from Elland Road.

Argentine news outlet El Dia has recently reported that it is “practically a fact” that the 22-year-old centre-back will depart Spurs at the end of the season.

Foyth’s potential exit means that Leeds could swoop in and land the Argentina international with Marcelo Bielsa reportedly interested in his fellow countryman.

Foyth is seen as a promising young defender who is good with the ball at his feet, which is undoubtedly why Mauricio Pochettino snapped him up from Estudiantes in 2017.

However since his move to North London, the Argentine has played just 16 times in the Premier League and has started just one league game this season.

It could be that Foyth is still developing and needs a step down from a top club like Spurs so that he can get more first-team experience and flourish a bit more.

Leeds might be a good place for him to do that under Bielsa and one fan believes that the 10-times Argentina international could be brought in to replace loan star Ben White.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

However, not every Leeds fan is a fan of Foyth, with one even calling the Tottenham youngster a “liability”.

In other Leeds United news, Phil Hay claims this rarely-seen player could be worth up to £40million.
