Ajax centre-back Davinson Sanchez has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur over the last couple of days, and it has been reported that the Premier League club are confident of completing a £25m deal for the Colombian.
Sanchez, 21, joined Ajax from Atletico Nacional last summer, and scored six times in 43 appearances during an impressive first season in European football.
The defender’s performance against Manchester United in the Europa League final was widely lauded, and Spurs appear to head a list of interested clubs in the final weeks of the transfer window.
Tottenham are yet to sign any new players in this summer’s transfer window, but head coach Mauricio Pochettino is expected to be busy over the next couple of weeks.
On Monday, Tottenham’s official Twitter account posted a quote from club captain Hugo Lloris ahead of this weekend’s Premier League match against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.
The mouthwatering London derby is a key game for both teams, but Tottenham supporters are currently more worried about Sanchez signing on the dotted line.
