Tottenham Hotspur are considering including Davinson Sanchez as part of a deal to sign Atalanta’s Cristian Romero, according to Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari.
Romero has emerged as a frontrunner to become Tottenham’s first central defensive recruit of the summer with Football.London revealing that the two clubs are in advanced talks over a transfer.
The 23-year-old was impressive at the back for Atalanta last season, having helped his side to a third place finish in Serie A.
Sanchez’s agent, Néstor Villarreal revealed last week that things are being worked on in the background and he could leave if the right deal is made (Gol Caracol).
The Colombian international was also linked with a move to Sevilla having been mentioned as a makeweight in a deal for Jules Kounde (Gianluca Di Marzio).

Sanchez has failed to prove that he has the ablity to become a top class central defender following his big money move from Ajax, having had ample time to adjust to life in the Premier League.
He is still guilty of lapses of concentration and poor positional play, which is exactly what Spurs fans witnessed his comedic defending against Manchester City at the Eithad last season in the phase of play that saw Gundogan score.
