It seems Tottenham Hotspur may end up keeping hold of Davinson Sanchez this summer after all, and the club are now in no rush to sell the player, unless they receive improved offers.

Davinson Sanchez was one of the main scapegoats in a poor campaign for Tottenham last season, especially in the wake of the humiliating 6-1 defeat against Newcastle United in April. The Colombian received abuse from Spurs supporters in the subsequent game against Bournemouth.

All signs pointed to the defender being one of the first players to be shipped out of the club this summer, as new manager Ange Postecoglou looked to put his own stamp on his squad.

Over the course of the summer, Sanchez has been linked with an array of different clubs, including PSV Eindhoven (Voetbal International), Villarreal (Relevo), Galatasaray (Sporx), and Spartak Moscow (Sport Express).

Will Davinson Sanchez stay at Spurs?

His latest suitors are French side Rennes, but a bid of €9m (£7.7m) has now been rejected by Tottenham. That’s according to The Athletic, who claim Spurs are now looking for a higher offer for the centre-half, and it is suggested the club may even be happy to retain Sanchez.

Charlie Eccleshare shared the latest update, and said: “Spurs have rejected €9m bid from Rennes for Davinson Sanchez – they want between €15-20m (£12.9-17.1m).

“If he goes they would want to bring in a replacement. In less of a rush to sell now that Sanchez has established himself under Postecolou as a viable back-up.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Personally, I would be happy to sell Sanchez for around £10m if an offer comes in. However, if Ange trusts him, then I trust that judgement. I guess it’s better to keep hold of a player we know all about, rather than rushing into signing a replacement before the window shuts.
