Report: Daniel Levy won’t sell Tottenham player for less than £17m, has already turned down an offer

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is unwilling to sell defender Davinson Sanchez for less than £17m.

This is according to a report by L’Equipe.

With interest from Ligue 1 club Rennes, French outlets claim Levy is reluctant to accept an offer for Davinson Sanchez below €20m, around £17m.

The same report also claims that Tottenham turned down an offer to loan the centre-back to Borussia Dortmund.

Sanchez has featured in just one of Spurs’ three Premier League games this season, coming on as a substitute in the 2-2 draw with Brentford.

£17m is a fair price for Davinson Sanchez

While Rennes may not be able to pay £17m for Sanchez, a European giant like Dortmund should be able to. And considering what they could get, Tottenham are acting quite sensibly here.

He’s an experienced defender who has been in the Premier League for years, so he’s not a newcomer that Dortmund or Rennes would buy.

The Colombian international can also be strong in the air. For example, he won 3.8 aerial duels per game in the Champions League in the 2019/20 season, which was the highest average in the Tottenham squad (who scored).

It’s important to remember that too Spurs paid £40m to sign Sanchez from Ajax, so of course they want to make some money back.

Ultimately, even if Sanchez’s contract expires next summer, £17m isn’t an insane amount, especially if Dortmund are one of the suitors.

Still, it looks like nobody is willing to pay that, so either Levy lowers the asking price or Sanchez stays part of Ange Postecoglou’s squad and expires his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
