Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly agreed a fee with Ajax for Davinson Sanchez.

Ajax boss Marcel Keizer has confirmed that Davinson Sanchez is about to leave his side.

The Guardian have reported that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a fee of an initial £28 million for the Colombian defender.

And Keizer admits that although the deal is not totally completed, he is now fighting a losing battle to keep hold of Sanchez.

“It seems that Sánchez leaves, though it is not yet final,” the Ajax boss said. “I assume the rest.”

Sanchez’s arrival at Spurs will strengthen Mauricio Pochettino’s defensive options considerably.

Spurs already have Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen available to play at the back, and Sanchez’s addition will make competition for places absolutely fierce.

Sanchez will become Tottenham’s first signing of what has been a slow summer transfer window so far, if he does join from Ajax in the near future.

Sanchez is unlikely to be a Spurs player in time to feature against Chelsea at the weekend, but could make his debut against Burnley in two Sundays’ time.
