Alasdair Gold has revealed that Monaco have shown an interest in signing Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez this summer.
The Colombia international, who joined Spurs for a then-club-record £42 million fee in 2018 (The Guardian), had another mixed campaign as he bounced in and out of the starting line-up.
He lost his place in the side following Antonio Conte’s appointment as head coach, but was required to play when Cristian Romero suffered a major hamstring injury mid-season.
Sanchez also deputised for Romero in the final three games of Tottenham’’s campaign, where he was part of a defence which kept three clean sheets and powered the club back to the Champions League.
Although the 26-year-old’s end-of-term displays will have duly been noted, Spurs have reportedly named him on a shortlist of players they are willing to offload over the summer transfer window (Evening Standard).
And Gold, responding to questions in a Q&A session for Football.London, has now revealed that Monaco have emerged as potential suitors for Sanchez.
The journalist also speculated whether Spurs could use potential discussions to negotiate a deal for France U21 man Benoit Badiashile to add more depth at left centre-back.
Badiashile was part of a Monaco side that surged towards the end of the Ligue 1 campaign, winning nine matches in a row to seal a Champions League qualification spot.
Spurs Web Opinion
Sanchez has had a very up and down time at Tottenham since what was a then club record transfer and he may be one they look to move on given he has sell-on value.
He did put in a number of strong performances when called upon this season to his credit which strengthens his argument as a back-up, but he may not be someone the club can always depend on for a long stretch.
