Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez has doubled his transfer value in just six months since his move from Ajax in the summer, according to an expert study.
The International Centre for Sports Studies’ (CIES) Football Observatory have claimed on their website that the Colombian centre back was worth in the region of £31million (€35.4million) in September of last year, but using their exclusive algorithm, judge him to have over doubled his value by £37million (€42million).
Sanchez arrived at Spurs for a fee which could reportedly hit £42million, and has established himself as a regular among the first team, with the 21-year-old making 34 appearances across all competitions.
The study also states that Harry Kane has also increased his worth with his impressive form this season, with a £24.8million (€28million) increase to be worth in the region of £175million (€192.2million).
Football Insider verdict
While Sanchez doubling in value over such a short period of time might seem a shock for many, those having watched his performances might not be surprised. The algorithms employed by the CIES work on elements such as contract length and performances in different competitions as well as age, so everything is in the 21-year-old’s favour. He has proven himself not just as a top quality centre back in the Premier League but also in the Champions League, and with his best years yet to come, the £42million spent seems like good value for money.
