According to Football Insider, as explained in their headline, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have ‘set sights on signing’ Mexico international defender Jorge Sanchez.
The Lowdown: Spurs linked to plethora of defenders…
Tottenham look set to finally clinch a new defensive signing in Cristian Romero, with reliable outlets like Sky Sports detailing that a deal is even agreed for his signature.
Meanwhile, Spurs have also been looking to strengthen elsewhere in defence and ideally want to sign two new centre-backs this summer, with the likes of Conor Coady and Takehiro Tomiyasu linked amid the Romero saga.
Right-back is another position touted as one to keep an eye on, especially with Serge Aurier openly admitting that it is the end of his cycle at Tottenham.
The Latest: Spurs ‘set sights on signing’ Sanchez…
As revealed by Football Insider, both Spurs and Everton have ‘set sights on signing’ Mexico international defender Sanchez this summer.
While the Toffees are mentioned more throughout the report, Football Insider explained that the Merseysiders face competition from Tottenham for the Club America star. Amassing 15 caps for Mexico already, Sanchez is still only 23 years old and has impressed at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The report adds that he would be suited to Premier League football and that the player himself is ‘ready to follow several of his Mexico teammates to a top European team’.
The Verdict: Bigger priorities…
While he’s one to keep an eye on, Sanchez shouldn’t exactly be top of Tottenham’s priority list this summer.
After Romero, Spurs should put all their attention into signing a new forward whilst also finally completing the Tomiyasu deal, especially as he can play at both right-back and centre-back to solve two conundrums.
