Report: Tottenham could sell Davinson Sanchez, but only if a replacement is found

Tottenham could be prepared to sell defender Davinson Sanchez in January, with the player open to a move away if the right chance comes up, reports The Athletic.

However, despite Sanchez being aware his future might lie elsewhere, it is claimed Spurs will only allow their £42m signing to go if they can land a suitable replacement in January.

Jose Mourinho has long been touted with bringing in a new defender. The likes of Milan Skriniar among the names mentioned as a potential signing for the Spurs boss.

However, Inter are thought to be seeking around £54m for Skriniar, meaning a January deal could be unlikely.

Sanchez, meanwhile, has struggled for game time as Mourinho has gone with Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld as his main partnership in defence this term.

The Colombian is not even halfway through a big money six-year deal with Spurs, thought to be worth £65k-a-week, per Spotrac.

And that’s why Jose Mourinho doesn’t select the former Ajax man on a regular basis. Sanchez has bags of potential and ability but he just doesn’t do it often enough and can make the odd error.

However, he’s still good as a back up and unless Spurs can get good money for him and get someone new, it seems unlikely they’ll sell at this point.

It’s a long season, and Sanchez could well still have time to impress Jose between now and the end of the campaign.
