Rumours linking Davinson Sanchez to Nottingham Forest have resurfaced after the Tottenham defender turned down a move to Spartak Moscow.
The rumours of Sanchez to Forest are not new. However, Forest’s interest has been revitalized after the Colombian’s failed move to Spartak Moscow.
The prospective move to Spartak Moscow had disaster written all over it. With countless ethical and moral implications associated with any transfer to Russia, Sanchez made the easy decision.
Spurs shouldn’t have even entertained the €12 million offer; such is the toxic environment in the country.
Cue the renewed interest from Forest. It’s a deal that makes immeasurably more sense for Sanchez, who would be able to remain in the Premier League.
Expect this deal to get done if Spurs receive a comparative offer of at least €10 million. There is no reason to hold up this process, especially considering his lower valuation.
Sanchez’s sale isn’t really predicated on Tottenham bringing in centre-back reinforcements. While it probably should be, Davinson isn’t in Ange’s plans, a fact that won’t drastically change even if Tottenham doesn’t source a new centre-back.
The Mail Sport broke the story today, so take any speculation with a grain of salt. However, it does add up and may materialize if Forest comes up with an equitable bid.
Sanchez is among an extensive list of potential Tottenham players expected to leave the club, but nothing, aside from Harry Winks going to Leicester, has materialized, an increasingly worrying scenario.
