According to Catalan journalist Gerard Romero from RAC1, the club have all but wrapped up a move to bring Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez.

Today, Spurs close-in on Davinson Sanchez...

Sanchez was hugely impressive in his debut campaign in Holland last season as he made 43 appearances to help Ajax finish runners-up in the Eredivisie to title-winners Feyenoord. In fact, the youngster also scored with six goals and provided two assists.

The 21-year-old has become an integral member of the squad within the course of a year.

Spurs' Bid for Anthony Martial Reportedly Rejected
Spurs are yet to make a signing this summer, and have now reportedly received a setback in their pursuit of the French forward. Tottenham Hotspur have had a bid rejected for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial according to reports in France.

Elsewhere, across last season, he completed 12 of his 17 take-ons (71% success rate) whilst averaging 2 interceptions per game and winning 59% of his headed duels.

Contemplating a move to join the Spurs?

Ajax have done well to keep hold of the Colombian despite a host of clubs ready to swoop for the centre-back and he will once again form a partnership at the back with Matthijs de Ligt.

Ajax's road to the Europa League final was partly paved by the valiant efforts of Sanchez.

Sanchez can also play at right-back, where Spurs are short of cover after Kyle Walker's departure, and Pochettino has previously said he wants to sign versatile players who can immediately challenge for a first-team place.

Therefore, its little surprise that Mauricio Pochettino, who has built his reputation on helping young players realise their potential, is keen to make Sanchez Tottenham Hotspur's belated first summer signing.

As Sport Witness explained at the time, Ajax's "not for sale" didn't really seem like the final answer, and it nearly felt the Dutch club were fishing for better offers, whether they be from Tottenham or elsewhere.
