Mexcian international Jorge Sanchez has admitted to Aguilas Monumenta that he wants to move to Europe amid reported Premier League interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.
The full-back suggested it would be his ‘dream to go to Europe’ since it is ‘a goal that he has worked a lot for’.
Football Insider reported earlier this month that Everton had set their sights on signing Sanchez but faced competition from Tottenham in a bid to secure the defender’s signature.
The 23-year-old gained plenty of admirers in Europe after his impressive performances for Mexico in the recent Olympic tournament in Tokyo. He played five games and helped his country to a bronze medal.
His performances at club level have led to him being rewarded with 15 caps for the national team since he made his debut in 2019 (Transfermarkt).
Sanchez plays for Club America in the first tier of Mexican football, playing 112 times for the club in all competitions.
However, it appears the full-back has his sights set on a move to Europe in the future, which could be music to the ears of those at Tottenham and Everton.
He said: “Of course, it is my dream to go to Europe.
“It is a goal I have worked a lot for. Let it happen. But, right now, I’m focused on Club America.
“(The club) haven’t told me anything, my representative is the one who knows. I am focused on my game.”
Spurs need a few more defensive options and this signing could be one that makes sense in the long-term as he is still a young player. It won’t get bums off seats but for the price, he will probably cost means that it could be an investment that pays off.
