Barcelona are set to make their first bid to sign Villarreal defender Juan Foyth, confirms Gerard Romero.
The Blaugrana are planning to offer €30m plus add-ons for the Argentine full-back, even though the Yellow Submarines keep demanding €42m to let him go.
Foyth himself is intrigued with a move to the Camp Nou as he believes that will be a big step forward in his career, confirms local Argentine outlet TYC Sports.
However, he needs reassurance of regular playing time because he wants to play for Argentina in the upcoming Qatar World Cup.
Foyth isn’t desperate to leave Villarreal yet, but is continuing to hold talks with Barca over personal terms.
Xavi Hernandez desperately wants a new right-back in his side and is ready to sell Sergino Dest to accommodate a signing like Foyth.
