Nottingham Forest have contacted Tottenham Hotspur over the availability of defender Davinson Sanchez.

27-year-old Sanchez joined Spurs from Ajax back in 2017, for a fee in the region of £42 million.

According to Graeme Bailey, the Colombian is free to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this window, with Fulham, Wolves and Galatasaray also interested in his services.

Steve Cooper’s side are looking for reinforcements at the back before the start of the new Premier League campaign.

Moussa Niakhate is once again sidelined with a dislocated elbow, whilst Brazilian central defender Felipe is yet to feature for the Reds throughout pre-season.

The injuries have left Joe Worrall, Willy Boly and Scott McKenna as Forest’s only fit centre-backs.

Who is Nottingham Forest target, Davinson Sanchez?

The 6ft 2in defender started his career at Colombian side Atletico National spending three years at the club before moving to Europe to play for Ajax.

He spent one season at the Dutch side, where he won Player of the Year whilst also helping his side reach the Europa League final.

His excellent performances in the Eredivisie saw Tottenham fork out a then-club-record fee of £42 million.

He’s since made 142 appearances for Spurs over a six-year stint, scoring three times.

Alongside his time in the Premier League, Sanchez has been a figurehead at the back for his national side featuring 54 times, including 4 starts at the 2018 World Cup.

Although he’s endured a tough spell at Tottenham in recent years, Sanchez still possesses a lot of quality that would undoubtedly improve the Reds’ backline.

Former boss Maurizio Pochettino branded Sanchez as ‘amazing‘ and the potential signing would see the Colombian reunite with Serge Aurier after the pair spent three years together in London.
