Unai Emery is ready for the "unwanted" Foyth transfer to Barcelona
After their main right-back target, Cesar Azpilicueta decided to stay at Chelsea, the Blaugrana reportedly have turned their attention to Villarreal's fullback, Juan Foyth.
is reportedly willing to sell their Argentine defender for a €42million fee before the end of the month withBarcelona
suffering shortage in the position. The Yellow Submarine's boss,Unai Emery
admits he knows he may lose key men withYeremy Pino
also being linked with a move to Arsenal.
Emery told a press conference on Wednesday:
"It is not affecting us. The market closes on August 31 and it does not make much sense, although those who make the decision will see some sense.
"In England they wanted to change the date, but in the end it was detrimental to the English market. The logical thing would be close at the beginning of August. Juan Foyth is not going to be here tomorrow because he has discomfort.
"What can affect us is that there may be unwanted exit movements. What harms the most is something unforeseen, such as a significant clause payment or the player considers an offer very attractive."
After an unsuccessful spell at Tottenham,Juan Foyth
joined Villarreal and established himself among the best La Liga right-backs. Emery added:
"About these latest rumours that have come out of Yeremy and Foyth, we are testing how the players can be. Foyth is very happy here, grateful to the club and to what he is experiencing here with us.
"He gives me a lot of peace of mind. He is not available. You have to know what the club thinks, which we know, and the player, which we already know. What Barcelona thinks, I don't know."
