Tottenham's chances of finally breaking their transfer duck improved on Saturday night when summer target Davinson Sanchez told Ajax he wants to leave the club.
He is great in the air and loves to have the ball at his feet, with Sanchez often seen bombing forward into the opponents half at any given opportunity.
And if the Lilywhites lose another defender, with Kevin Wimmer heavily linked with a move away, then, according to ESPN, they will turn their attention to Ajax's 21-year-old Colombian centre-back, who they are said to be closing in on a closing in on with a £35m bid.
The versatile defender operates primarily as a central defender but can also play at right-back, which would be a big boost for Spurs. He will be hoping to lead Ajax to the Eredivisie title and another run in the Europa League.

Pochettino has worked between a number of different formations and has fielded both a back four and three centre-halves over the last 12 months.
Davinson Sanchez is not part of Ajax's match squad for their league match against Heracles tonight.
Sanchez's versatility could well help to cover this position, while his physical attributes would suit a wing-back role.
Pochettino also has an interest in Manchester United striker Anthony Martial but Tottenham have not made an offer for the France worldwide and believe he will be out of their price range.
But the wait for their first signing looks nearly over on the eve of Tottenham's first league match of the season at Newcastle.
