Talks Are Already On Going – Tottenham Look To Sign £35m Versatile Defender From Eredivisie

Published

on

Tottenham are all set to launch a £35million bid for Ajax’s 21-year-old versatile defender Davinson Sanchez, as per the reports from The Sun.

The source claims that Lilywhites are confident of landing the twice-capped Colombian international ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Barcelona. Besides these two European giants, fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, who recently appointed former Ajax boss Frank De Boer and wasted no time in signing Jairo Riedewald from the Dutch giants, are in the chase as well.

Furthermore, SunSport also claims that talks about a potential transfer have already begun in Amsterdam and Sanchez is on the verge of becoming Tottenham’s first summer signing. Rated at £35million, the 21-year-old defender joined Ajax back in 2016 from Atlético Nacional, signing a five-year deal. He had offers from Barcelona and Flamengo but didn’t want to play in their youth ranks, hence, decided to move to Netherlands.

Sanchez made 43 appearances in all competitions for Ajax last season and managed to bag 6 goals. Besides, he was one of Ajax’s star performers in their Europa League final defeat against Manchester United. His move might well turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the Lilywhites given the fact that he is capable of playing as a central defender and as a right-back.

Having sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for a whopping £50million, Tottenham are in a dire need of a defensive reinforcement. We did manage to tie down Kieran Trippier for the long-term, but the Englishman’s recent injury might well force Tottenham to dip into the transfer market. And this is when Davinson Sanchez comes into the picture.

If signed, Sanchez will become Tottenham’s record signing, surpassing Moussa Sissoko’s £30million move from Newcastle United last summer. The Lilywhites are yet to make an inroad into the transfer market.

Having Champions League football to play for next season, Tottenham will sure have a thing or two worry about should they fail to bring in any reinforcement, be it their attacking unit or the defensive personnel.
