Barca target Ajax’s Davinson

Barcelona are lining up a summer move for Ajax centre half Davinson Sanchez as they aim to reinforce their defence, say reports in Spain.

AS claims the Colombian defender is high on Barca’s radar and the club see him as a long-term central defensive partner for Samuel Umtiti.

Cadena Ser claimed earlier this week the Dutch giants would be willing to do business for a fee of €25m – five times the price they paid for the 20-year-old in 2014 when signing him from Atletico Nacional.

Jeremy Matieu is set to leave the Camp Nou this summer and despite having long-term links to Palmerias central defender Yerry Mina, it now appears that Sanchez has become their number one target.
