Transfer News: Tottenham star Davinson Sanchez eyed by AFC Ajax
Sanchez, 24, joined Tottenham Hotspur from AFC Ajax in the summer of 2017 for a then club-record transfer fee. However, the Colombian international has never quite been able to nail down a starting berth for himself, be it under Mauricio Pochettino or Jose Mourinho.
While there have been stretches where he has been top-notch, Sanchez has shown that he always has an error in him, making him largely inconsistent. In close to four years at the club, the towering centre-back has made 148 appearances across all competitions, in which he has three goals and an assist. (h/t Transfermarkt)
With Tottenham looking to strengthen their defensive ranks this summer, there will be changes made to the roster, which could spell bad news for Sanchez. Even though the 24-year-old is contracted with the club till the summer of 2024, rumours of an exit never seem to be far away. And, as per the latest update, Ajax could be open to the prospect of re-signing him. (h/t TEAMtalk)
Sanchez spent one season at Ajax, having arrived from Atletico Nacional in 2016 before leaving for Tottenham in 2017. The Colombian made a huge impression in his only year in the Netherlands and was a key member of the team that made the finals of the UEFA Europa League that season. So, it is understandable why Ajax would want to sign him back.
In fact, Sanchez is not the only Tottenham star that the Dutch heavyweights are eyeing. Toby Alderweireld, another ex-Ajax star, is also very much on the radars of De Godenzonen heading into the summer.

Despite Ajax’s interest, a move would be unlikely as Daniel Levy would demand a premium fee for Sanchez with his contract still having three years left. Plus, there is always the chance that whoever is appointed as the new manager might want to give the Colombian another shot as well.
