Colombian defender is keen to move to North London this week as Mauricio Pochettino closes in on his first summer signings

TOTTENHAM target Davinson Sanchez has gone on strike – refusing to board the Ajax bus for their opening game of the season.

Spurs are close to landing the 21-year-old defender in a £35million deal, but such antics will not go down well in North London.

Mauricio Pochettino has so far failed to bring in any new signings for Spurs this summer

Last year’s Europa League finalists lost 2-1 at Heracles – without the big defender who is holding out for a move to Tottenham.

Sanchez joined Ajax from Atletico National last summer for £4m on a five-year contract, and his standout performances have caught the eye of Europe’s elite.

The Dutch giants are doing everything possible to keep Sanchez, who has only been in Holland for a year.

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars said: “Ajax have made Davinson a top offer for a new contract.”

Despite what Overmars has said, the club are resigned to losing the defender who looks set to follow his former team-mate Davy Klaassen to England.

Klassen joined Everton and made his Premier League bow in the win against Stoke at Goodison Park.
