Tottenham star fascinated by one destination as he warms to January exit

Davinson Sanchez is willing to listen to offers to leave Tottenham in January, according to a report.

Sanchez has been struggling for gametime this season, despite Spurs being without fellow defender Toby Alderweireld for a few games.

The Colombian international has started just four games in the Premier League, from a possible 11. The last of those came in mid-October.

Since then, he has only made the bench once in the league, with Jose Mourinho sometimes leaving him out of his squad altogether.

Therefore, Sanchez may have to assess his options when the January transfer window opens. A move away could be the ideal scenario for his career.

Reports have indicated that Tottenham have already set their asking price for Sanchez, with AC Milan interested in taking him to Italy.

Now, Italian source Calciomercato.it claims that the idea of a move to Milan “fascinates” Sanchez. However, there have been no formal contacts with the club so far.

Sanchez is ready to listen to offers, as he wants a platform on which to prove himself on a regular basis at the age of 24. He is not getting the frequent gametime he needs at Tottenham.

Previous reports have linked Sanchez with a move to Merseyside, to either Liverpool or Everton. However, the Milan route seems more likely at present.

No discounts for Sanchez

Even so, the Serie A club may have a problem reaching Tottenham’s asking price. The report warns that Daniel Levy will not give any discounts.

Tottenham want to recoup most of the £42m fee that they originally paid for the former Ajax defender. That was a club record deal at the time.

Therefore, Milan will have to find a way to fund the deal as they look to bring in their centre-back target midway through the season.
