Spurs to sign Davinson Sanchez, is he worth the £ 42 million

DATE: 22.08.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on their first signing of the summer after confirming an agreement in principle for highly-rated Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez. Can the young Colombian finally help Spurs clinch a Premier League title?
 

It has been a tumultuous summer for Mauricio Pochettino, not least with regards to defenders. After losing Kyle Walker to Manchester City and Kieran Trippier to injury, speculation over Danny Rose’s future has hit the London club hard.

But, with their first ‘home’ game at Wembley fast approaching, the Argentine manager finally has reason to smile.
Sanchez, who only joined Ajax from Atletico Nacional last year, has quickly established himself as one of the hottest defensive properties in the game.

Dutch sports site Onlinewedden.com have labelled his ascent to global fame as nothing short of incredible, citing the youngster’s performances along the Eredivisie club’s route to the Europa League final as a a particularly pleasing factor.

The young defender can be seen as somewhat of a coup for the Premier League side, not least because he was heavily linked with Barcelona towards the back end of last season.

Given his fantastic passing abilities and willingness to get involved in the play, many saw him as the perfect addition at the Camp Nou. Chelsea, Real Madrid, and a host of other top clubs had all shown an interest too.

For Spurs, it signals a massive accomplishment as they look to finally cement their place at the very top table football’s hierarchy. While composure on the ball was a key ingredient as the youngster scooped Ajax’s Player of the Year award, there’s far more to the Colombian’s game.

Even at such an early stage of his career, Sanchez boasts a powerful frame, which will be well suited to the physical demands of English football. Meanwhile, the fact that he has forced the exit through, as per Independent.co.uk, shows that he has the ambition and belief that is synonymous with Spurs during the Pochettino reign.

Given that Spurs have only broken the £25m barrier on four occasions, a club record £42m signals a major investment. However, it’s still less than they fetched for Walker earlier this summer while Daniel Levy will accept that money needs to be spent if Spurs are to establish themselves as regular Premier League contenders. 

Moreover, while the first choice pairing are brilliant, there is no doubt that the squad is lacking depth in this area of the field. With Champions League football on the agenda once more, adding genuine quality is essential.

Pochettino’s track record of giving youngsters a chance to perform at senior level ensures that Sanchez has made the right choice in picking London as his next destination, especially as he’ll be able to continue his education under the wings of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

Perhaps more importantly, though, with the 21-year-old seemingly ready to jump straight in at the deep end, Sanchez could join Harry Kane and Dele Alli as one of the lynchpins for a potentially glittering era. For that reason alone, even at £42m, it could be a snip.
