International eyed by Tottenham makes training return after move hits major stumbling block - reports
By Harvey Byrne
Centre-back Davinson Sanchez has returned to training with Ajax on Wednesday after Tottenham hit a major stumbling block, according to reports.
The Daily Mail have claimed via their website that the 21-year-old had appeared to have ended his dispute with the European giants after informing coaches on Tuesday that he didn’t wish to train, opting to work in the gym on his own.
Now, his return could also be linked with Sky Sports Italy correspondent Gianluca Di Marzio claiming on his personal website on Tuesday that Ajax are holding out for £38million for the young Colombia international, which would top Tottenham’s transfer record by £8million.
However, it is also said in the Mail report that Sanchez does wish to make a move to the Premier League and that he wants to play for Spurs after speaking to Mauricio Pochettino despite Real Madrid reported to be lining up a bid themselves.

Tottenham are refusing to get caught up in the inflating transfer prices this summer, but they must understand that they may have to break their transfer record at the very least this summer. Sanchez himself is a very talented defender at his young age and still has four years remaining on his contract at Ajax, meaning the Dutch giants hold all of the power. But, Sanchez could also line-up in the Tottenham defence for years if he fulfils his potential and Spurs simply must ensure they get a deal over the line for him this summer.
