Tottenham hopes to use Davinson Sánchez to land Serie A defender
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham is on the verge of locking up its goalkeeping position in Atalanta BC’s Pierluigi Gollini. However, that isn’t the only deal that the English club wants to make with the Serie A side. 

According to Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari, Tottenham wants to work out a deal that would see them land teammate, Cristian Romero. The report states that Tottenham proposes a swap deal for the Argentine defender that would include Davinson Sánchez.

The 25-year-old has failed to lock down one of the starting central defender spots since arriving from Ajax in 2017 despite showing massive promise in glimpses under Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho.

Sánchez is a name that Tottenham is open to dealing and Atalanta could be interested considering that the Colombian defender’s agent also represents someone on the Italian club, Duván Zapata. 

It will be interesting to see whether Atalanta decides to accept this offer for Romero, who Tottenham has on their shortlist of central defenders they want to land this summer.

I’m suspicious, Romero on the face of it seems out of our league – just won the Copa America with Argentina, voted best defender in Serie A last season…

Doesn’t make sense that he’d want to come to Spurs tbh. Fingers crossed though, because as a replacement for Sanchez its a serious upgrade.

Until they appear at the training ground holding up a home shirt, I won’t believe any of these transfer rumours.

From the outside looking in our great club doesn’t seem like a big attraction.

Might be wrong, might being doing THFC a grave misjustice, not sure amazing ground and superb training facilities are top of a players list when looking to join a new club.

I said in an earlier post I’m struggling to recall the last time we attracted a world class proven player. Yes many have joined and improved/gone on to greater things.

After Klinnsmann I’m scratching my head……and that was by the old chairman.

20 years of dross from the board

I really do not know what to think about upcoming season……on the one hand as poor as we were last year, think we were only 7 points off a champions league place and by my reckoning we dropped at least 14 points from winning positions. So on the other hand if we can learn how to defend we could do surprisingly well.
Don’t know whether to listen to my heart or my head!!

All those points were loss on the field not in the board room. Silly mistakes and about 9 of those are directly to VAR drawing lines on a screen to show a toe on a line. Not where that toe prior to the ball played. Handball for a guy jumping using his arms for support, ball striking him on the back of the arm.

Difficult to do these deals keeping all parties happy.

The Agent is fully involve and just as they can foist managers in taking their clients and countrymen the money Atalanata stands to make is incentive enough for working out
these kinds of deals. If Spurs are sending $25M with a player valued at, at least $35M, they get a player for free and still make a profit for a player that has one good year and a tournament. Sanchez is five games of keeping his concentration from being a world class defender and he can with his speed in a slower league, Atalanta is getting a very good defender.

If he is so close to being decent lets see some team come in with the £35m you think he is worth.
I still get flashbacks of his brainfarts what was he doing against Palace nowhere near play/players.

Do the math and forget the on field thing of which i address. What would it cost to sign Romero on his own. It would means Romero is valued at between $50-60M by Atalanta how else are they going to make a profit by accepting $25m in the exchange. My point was not Sanchez being good enough to play for Spurs because of his value. I think Sanchez has gone backward in England. With a less dogged league he can dwell on the ball, be out of position and look spectacular with his speed making plays.
