Tottenham boss Pochettino keen to sign Davinson Sanchez from Ajax

Tottenham have agreed personal terms with Davinson Sanchez after sealing a deal with Ajax worth up to £35m for the highly-rated defender, according to The Sun.

Pressure has been mounting on Mauricio Pochettino due to his inactivity in the transfer window this summer, and signing Ajax's Player of the Year from last season can be a step in the right direction.

Ajax allowed Sanchez to remain with Atlético Nacional squad as they won the 2016 Copa Libertadores but after joining up with his new teammates he became a crucial member of Peter Bosz's squad.

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. The player went on to enjoy three stellar campaigns with the Colombian club before he was signed by Ajax only last summer.

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.

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

A new defender would certainly be welcomed by the Spurs fans. Having improved rapidly at Ajax, Sanchez seems like an ideal target for the north London club.

While Sanchez certainly has the size, pace and composure on the ball to make it as a center back at a top club, his current lack of experience makes this deal a bit of a gamble. Spurs can give him plenty of chances to clock regular minutes on field when compared to his other suitors, thus making the club a good choice.

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.
