Davinson Sanchez featured for Ajax in the Europa League final last season

Ajax and Colombia center back Davinson Sanchez could be heading to Tottenham Hotspur, if a report from RAC Radio in Catalonia is to be believed.

Admittedly, I've written about Spurs being about to complete their first signing of the summer about three times already in the last couple of weeks but it seems like it might genuinely happen.

The deal would eclipse the £30m Spurs spent on both Erik Lamela in 2013 and Moussa Sissoko on deadline day a year ago.

And if the Lilywhites lose another defender, with Kevin Wimmer heavily linked with a move away, then, according to ESPN, they will turn their attention to Ajax's 21-year-old Colombian centre-back, who they are said to be closing in on a closing in on with a £35m bid.


However, De Telegraaf reported on Saturday morning that Ajax remain determined to retain the player, with director of football Marc Overmars telling the newspaper that the club have made Sanchez a "top offer" to sign a new contract.

The Colombian worldwide Sanchez was impressive last season for Dutch giants Ajax, helping the club to reach the final of the Europa League where they lost to Manchester United in the final. Christian Eriksen also joined Spurs from the Dutch club and all three have been a huge success in north London.

Inter Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid have also made enquiries about the £40million-rated Sanchez but Tottenham's intent and the prospect of playing under Mauricio Pochettino has convinced him it is the right move for the next stage in his career.
