Rumors for Friday, August 18, 2017

Tottenham submitted a bid for Ajax center back Davinson Sanchez for a fee worth up to a club-record £40m, and the Eredivisie club has accepted the offer.

Having yet to spend a penny in the summer window, Spurs are poised to take the bulk of the 50m they pocketed from the sale of Kyle Walker and re-invest it in the promising 21-year-old Colombian international. When interest first leaked of interest in the player, Ajax took a stance that Sanchez was not on the market, but Sanchez himself gave every indication he would be happier with the move and now the deal looks like it will get done. At minimum, Spurs are in need of cover at the position and Kevin Wimmer may still depart before the window closes. But Sanchez could work his way into the XI rather quickly if he can get acclimated and join Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen in a three center back formation that Mauricio Pochettino has come to prefer. Assuming he signs,he is likely worth a stash in most draft leagues if you can afford to preserve him on your bench until he carves out his role.
