Opinion: Spurs should sell this player for £50m after three seasons at the club

Back in 2017, Tottenham signed a very young and raw centre-back by the name of Davinson Sanchez, paying Ajax a whopping £42m for the privilege (BBC).

Until last summer, Sanchez represented Spurs’ record signing in the transfer market, before Tanguy Ndombele joined from Lyon.

Now 24-years-old and with three years under his belt in North London, it should be a time in which Sanchez is stepping up to fill the void of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

However, I would argue that Sanchez is still making those same mistakes he was guilty of when he first joined the club and that he is not the solid rock that Spurs need.

The Colombian international is being outperformed by Eric Dier in the Tottenham defence and Japhet Tanganga looks to be an extremely promising up-and-comer for Spurs.

Not to mention the fact that Alderweireld just signed a new deal, Juan Foyth remains an option, and Cameron Carter-Vickers is earning rave reviews on loan at Luton Town.

In a summer in which Spurs need to make some smart signings to push for top four and beyond, I think that Levy should look to cash in on Sanchez.

I believe that £50m would be a reasonable price for the former Ajax man, just £8m more than Spurs paid for him back in 2017.

This would free up cash for Mourinho to bring in a new right-back, defensive midfielder player, and striker, plus more.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If he’s as bad as you seem to think, Seb, they’ll never get 50 M for him. I think he is a solid utility player, perhaps not a replacement star for Alderweireld or Vertongen but a solid defender most of the time.
