Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want Davinson Sanchez.

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.

The pressure is on Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to spend this summer, with the Lilywhites being the only Premier League team yet to buy a player.

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.
