Tottenham finally off the mark as Ajax star signs six-year deal

Tottenham finally off the mark as Ajax star signs six-year deal”

Meanwhile, Spurs are close to completing a deal for Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez.

Ajax centre-half Sanchez looks nearly certain to become their first purchase, with Spurs agreeing an initial £28m fee for the Colombian.

"I want four players if possible but it is not easy", Pochettino said.

The 21-year-old enjoyed an excellent debut campaign in Holland as he was named as the clubs Player of the Year after helping Ajax reach the final of the Europa League and finish just one point behind Eredivisie champions Feyenoord.

The Colombian global has spoken of his joy at signing for last season's FA Cup semi-finalists.

Tottenham, who finished second in the league behind Chelsea last season, are the only English top-flight club yet to sign a player and have lost right back Kyle Walker to rivals Manchester City.

So it looks as if Tottenham have finally come alive in the transfer window, with Ajax's Davinson Sanchez heavily-linked with an imminent move to the white half of North London.

"I am very excited to be signing for such a famous club as Tottenham Hotspur".

"I won't speak about rumours", the Tottenham boss continued when asked about the Ajax man. "We need time to work". They have signed good players. The anthem of that summer - Three Lions by Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds - had just been knocked off the top of the United Kingdom singles chart by Fugees' Killing Me Softly.

Sanchez's arrival is set to spell the end of Kevin Wimmer's career at Spurs, with West Bromwich Albion favourites to land the Austrian worldwide.
