Twitter reacts to Tottenham’s first summer signing as Davinson Sanchez joins in £42m deal

Tottenham have had a very quiet transfer window even by their own standards as they were yet to sign a single player until Friday evening. Now one week into the season, Tottenham confirmed the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax on a six year deal.

The Guardian believe that the fee is likely to be around £42 million for the 21-year-old Colombian. That will take the form of £28 million up-front with a further £14 million in add-ons, representing a club record fee. That smashes the record set last summer which brought Moussa Sissoko to White Hart Lane.

It also means that Sanchez will become the first Spurs player to have played for the club not to have played at White Hart Lane, and he will be hoping to make his debut against Burnley if a medical is completed in time and a work permit is granted.

Sanchez was player of the year for Ajax last season as they reached the Europa League final with an impressive run, whilst Sanchez also finished the season as the highest scoring defender in the Netherlands.

Such credentials have got Spurs fans excited about their new signing, with many believing that it will give way to a more regular deployment of the 3-4-3 model occasionally used by Mauricio Pochettino. As such, he will provide competition and an alternative to the likes of Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, whilst it is likely to spell the end of Kevin Wimmer’s Tottenham career.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news…
