Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly bringing two new defenders to the club this summer.

According to Argentine publication Todo Noticias, Tottenham Hotspur have secured a deal for Juan Foyth this summer, and if the young centre-back follows Davinson Sanchez to North London, hindsight could ensure this transfer window goes down as a great one for Spurs and their manager Mauricio Pochettino.

As reported by the BBC earlier this month, Tottenham sealed a club-record deal for Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez, securing the youngster for the next six years, and if Foyth joins him Spurs will have two of the most highly rated centre-backs in world football on their books for the foreseeable future.

At first glance, the moves seem questionable given the presence of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, but the latter is 30 and questions remain over the former's contract situation.

Even if Alderweireld stays long term, he will be 29 by the end of this season and Tottenham are clearly planning for the future.

While Spurs fans are clamouring for another striker and an additional quality winger, they have done well without those so far, and centre-back is one of the few areas of the pitch where Tottenham do not have superstars in the making.

Big things are expected of Cameron Carter-Vickers but the young American is the only centre-back in his age bracket with first-team credentials and bringing in both Sanchez and Foyth would shake things up considerably.

The likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah could be Tottenham stars for the next decade and bringing in Sanchez and potentially Foyth would ensure the club's defence continues to be well stocked even when Vertonghen and Alderweireld move on.

They may not be the signings Tottenham fans were craving, but one day they may look back on this summer as the one in which the long-term future of their defence was secured in impressive fashion.
