Don Hutchison has backed Tottenham Hotspur's reported pursuit of Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez.
According to The Sun, Tottenham are interested in spending upwards of £35 million on the Colombia international, who is also on Chelsea's radar according to the report.
But former Everton and West Ham ace Hutchison claims that signing the 21-year-old would be a good place to start, stating that he likes the player a lot.

Tottenham kick off the Premier League season on Sunday with a trip to newly-promoted Newcastle United.
But their lack of signings, combined with Danny Rose's explosive interview this week, has made for a gloomy feel surrounding Spurs' new campaign.
But breaking their transfer record on Sanchez would certainly lift the mood, though such a move is unlikely to happen before Sunday.
