Tottenham close in on £35 million move for Davinson Sanchez

Speculation has indicated Spurs are nearing a £35million deal for Sanchez as they seek to make their first signing of the transfer window.

A new defender is on Pochettino's agenda and Sanchez emerged as a prime target late last week with widespread reports suggesting Tottenham were in talks for the Colombian worldwide.

Tottenham target Davinson Sanchez was not part of Ajax's squad for their first game of the season on Saturday because he was "not 100% focused".

The versatile defender operates primarily as a central defender but can also play at right-back, which would be a big boost for Spurs.

Ajax will be making a massive profit on the player given that they only paid around €5 million (£4.5 million) for his services a year ago. He will be hoping to lead Ajax to the Eredivisie title and another run in the Europa League.

Reputable English and Dutch outlets aren't running with the rumor yet, so you shouldn't get your hopes up yet, but Gerard Romero uses some definitive language here - he says that Sanchez is going to be a Tottenham player, and that Spurs will pay €35 million.
