Ange Postecoglu, the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur, oversaw important incoming and outgoing transfers during the crucial summer transfer window. It now looks that Postecoglu is continuing preparing his team for the future by offloading defender Davinson Sanchez.
Tottenham Sell Davinson Sanchez to Galatasaray
How Much Are Spurs Getting for Davinson Sanchez?
A contract between Tottenham and Turkish club Galatasaray for the signing of Colombian defender Sanchez is “official, confirmed,” according to Fabrizio Romano, and the Turkish transfer window is still open until September 15.
A sum of approximately £8.1 million will be paid to the Lilywhites over the course of the following five years, the journalist continues, for the selling of the center-back. The 27-year-old has a four-year contract with the Turkish team, he continues.
What Did Sanchez Achieve at Tottenham?
The 27-year-old Colombian defender, who won Player of the Season honors at Ajax for the 2016–17 season, joined Spurs in 2017 for a rumored sum of £42 million. The Colombian, however, found it difficult to adjust to the Premier League’s rigors and quickly found himself reduced to a rotational role by the several North London coaches he played for.
Only eight of his 24 Lilywhites outings last season were starts in the Premier League. In their 3-2 home loss to Bournemouth, the 27-year-old was repeatedly criticized for making mistakes and even booed off by the Tottenham supporters.
Sanchez’s future at the club appeared to be sealed when Spurs made the decision to team center-back Cristian Romero with defender Micky Van de Ven. After leaving Spurs, he will begin a new chapter at Galatasaray and intends to relaunch his career in Turkey.
Arsenal favourite Ramsey points out the only player he’s scared of at Spurs; Wish he hadn’t joined Spurs
Brennan Johnson’s potential has been dubbed “scary” by Aaron Ramsey after Tottenham signed the Welsh captain’s international partner.
The 22-year-old striker, who cost Spurs £45 million on deadline day, might face Ramsey’s former team, Arsenal, in the north London derby later this month.
When asked about the signing by reporters, Ramsey joked, “I wish it weren’t to Tottenham.”
The Dragons captain praised Johnson’s decision as a “brilliant” opportunity for him to realize his potential prior to Wales’ matches against South Korea and Latvia.
He went on to say, “The potential he has is extremely frightening, and hopefully he can take those next steps and get to the next level.
He will be crucial for Wales as well. He’s going to be incredibly important to us in the future, and we’re all thrilled that he now has a new opportunity to grow.
Ange Postecoglou stated why Tottenham has invested substantially in the “exciting” striker despite the fact that Johnson was unable to make his debut against Burnley over the weekend.
“He’s a real threat in the front third, he’s different from what we’ve already got, he’s young and ambitious,” the Australian remarked. It’s no secret that she serves as my role model.
“It’s just as much about the person as well as the footballer, and looking at him he’s going to fit in really well with this group. He’s ambitious and hungry and wants to take his game to the next level.
“The technical and the physical attributes he has, he should fit in really well.”
Report: Postecoglou blocked Tottenham player’s exit despite limited game time – Spurs Web – Tottenham Hotspur Football News
Sport have explained that Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur held several conversations about Giovani Lo Celso this summer but Ange Postecoglou vetoed the midfielder’s move to Camp Nou.
According to the source, Lo Celso was “one of Xavi’s requests” to the Barca leadership this summer since the 43-year-old thought the Tottenham player could have a significant impact in the last third of the field.
Postecoglou blocked Giovani Lo Celso exit
Spurs allegedly told the La Liga giants earlier in the summer that they would only accept loaning the player out if the transaction contained an obligatory buy option, according to the explanation that Barca had’maintained communications’ with them regarding the 27-year-old.
Because Lo Celso was a valuable team member, Tottenham did not want to let him leave without offering him something in return.
Postecoglou reportedly told Spurs that he is “counting” on the Argentinean international and plans to use him “in rotation” this year.
Spurs would have probably sold the midfielder and signed a replacement if Barca or any other club had made a loan offer with the requirement to sign Lo Celso permanently for £20 million.
However, no such offer seems to be made, and the former Real Betis player appeared eager to remain and contend for a spot in the lineup.
