L’Equipe claim that Rennes submitted an offer to Tottenham Hotspur for Davinson Sanchez, with just days left of the summer transfer window.
The report states that Rennes are keen to add a central defender to their squad before Friday evening’s transfer deadline and have been exploring ‘several avenues’ over the last few days.
However, the French club have now settled on Sanchez as their top target and have made a ‘concrete’ step towards signing the Colombian. It is alleged that Rennes offered €9m (£7.7m) to Tottenham for the 27-year-old.

The outlet explains that Spurs are thought to value the defender at around €10m-€15m (£8.5m-£12.8m).

Tottenham will be hoping to get around £10m or above for Sanchez this summer, given the amount of interest the Colombian seems to be generating around Europe.
The fact that Spurs have not yet sold the 27-year-old perhaps indicates that there is a genuine chance of the centre-back being used as a makeweight in a deal for Johnson.
