Tottenham Transfer News: Barcelona interested in signing Davinson Sanchez
Sanchez, 24, has been with Tottenham since 2017, having arrived from Dutch giants Ajax in a then club-record transfer for £42m. Almost four years into his stint at the club and the Colombian is yet to justify the investment made in him.
Indeed, Sanchez has never been able to string together a consistent run of performances for Tottenham so far in his spell at the club. And the ongoing campaign has been pretty much the same tale. After a few solid displays, the Colombian was all over the place in our 2-2 draw against Newcastle last week.
This could force Tottenham to consider offloading Sanchez at the end of the season. And, as per the report, Barcelona have emerged as a suitor for the 24-year-old Colombian international ahead of the summer transfer window. (h/t The Sun)
The Catalans are in need of defensive reinforcements given as Gerard Pique is getting old and Samuel Umtiti continues to be plagued with injury issues. Eric Garcia of Manchester City is expected to join the Blaugrana at the end of the season on a free transfer. But, Barcelona are keeping their options open and have identified Sanchez as a transfer target. (h/t The Sun)
