Leeds United have been linked with a stunning move for Tottenham centre-back Juan Foyth and Leeds fans would love it if the move came off.
Bielsa has been confirmed as the manager at Elland Road and is looking to use his connections with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to help sign new players.
Argentine outlet Varksy Sports claimed on their official Twitter account that Bielsa is keen on a temporary move for the 20-year-old for next season.

Foyth joined Spurs last summer for £12million from Estudiantes and made eight senior appearances under Mauricio Pochettino last season.
It is thought that Pochettino might look to send him on loan to continue his development, and Leeds would make a lot of sense.
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa and Pochettino have good contacts, with the Spurs manager calling him my “football father”.
Plus Bielsa is Argentine, like Foyth, and Pochettino could see Elland Road as the ideal destination to continue his growth.
Pochettino sees Foyth as a big talent and Leeds fans would love to get their hands on him for next season.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to the transfer report:
Expect Juan Foyth is on Bielsa’s radar rather than Bartley. Fits profile far better. A few more surprises too as we will attract better players with a Manager of his stature. Can see Pep & Poch sending players on loan to Leeds pic.twitter.com/Rhr6U6EfHS

So much Championship experience for a young player. Be a great signing, time for Bielsa to flex his muscles and get on the phone to Pochettino.
