This has also been an issue for me. I feel that taking a wider stance while keeping all the same principles active for a good squat will allow your foot to remain on the ground while you deal with the mobility of your ankle.
Try everything you can on and around the ankle but for me hitting this area seems to really help:
Except I use a lax ball with as much pressure as I can get. There have been a few videos with a KB as well which should work even better.
It’s funny how it works though. Start solving one problem (externally rotating hip during squat) and open up a few new problems (foot not staying flat, groin tightness, etc)
