Davinson Sanchez’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been subject to numerous transfer rumors this season, with strong links to Turkish club Galatasaray.
However, La Liga side Real Betis have now emerged as the favorites to sign the Colombian defender.
According to reports from TMW, negotiations between Real Betis and Tottenham appear to be ‘well advanced’ , and a ‘final decision is expected within a week’ .
The fee being discussed is reportedly around €7 million, which may not be ideal for Spurs, but they could accept it considering Sanchez’s contract expires next summer, potentially allowing him to leave on a free transfer.
Tottenham are actively seeking defensive reinforcements and have been linked with other defenders such as Micky van de Ven and Edmond Tapsoba.
Strengthening the defense is crucial for manager Ange Postecoglou’s attacking style of play, and the club is determined to solidify their backline.
Sanchez joined Tottenham in 2017 for a significant fee of €42 million, making him one of the club’s most expensive signings at the time.
Back then, he was considered one of the most promising young defenders in Europe, with a bright future ahead of him.
However, his time at Spurs has been inconsistent, and he has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter.
A move away could offer Sanchez a fresh start and an opportunity to rediscover his form.
Leaving Tottenham might be the best decision for the Colombian international to revitalise his career and find more playing time elsewhere.
