By | November 22, 2020

Liverpool have allegedly made contract with the agents of Tottenham Hotspur’s centre-back Davinson Sanchez in order to lure him at Anfield.

The Premier League defending champions have lost both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk for the rest of the season, meaning that a new defender is expected to arrive at Anfield as soon as transfer window will be re-opened in January.

A recent report suggested that the Merseyside Reds had identified RB Leipzig’s centre-back Dayot Upamecano as their leading transfer target, however, the likes of Man Utd and Manchester City are also said to be in the hunt for the Frenchman.

According to reports in Spain, the Mersyeside Reds are also keen on Colombian centre-back and have already made contact with the Colombia international to register their interest.

The 24-year-old has played 126 games for Jose Mourinho’s side since arriving from Dutch giants, Ajax back in 2017, however, has largely struggled to hold down a starting role on a consistent basis.

The South American, who has a deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until June 2024, has not even made the squad for his team’s last three Premier League games.

Jose Mourinho’s side are believed to value the defender in the region of €60m (£54m).
