Tottenham closing in on £35m deal for Ajax's Davinson Sanchez - sources
From ESPN - August 12, 2017

Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a club-record 35 million deal to sign Ajax centre-back Davinson Sanchez, sources have told ESPN FC.

Reports in Europe claim Spurs have already signed Sanchez and, while they are premature at this stage, they are confident of making the 21-year-old centre-back their first signing of the summer.

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

Sanchez, who has two caps for Colombia, helped Atletico National to the Copa Libertadores and Colombian title before joining Ajax for less than 5m last summer. He was instrumental in the Eredivisie club's run to the Europa League final, where they lost to Manchester United, and he was named the club's player of the year.
