Davinson ‘would like’ Barca move

Ajax central defender Davinson Sanchez has confirmed he would ‘obviously like to play for Barcelona’ after being linked to the Camp Nou.

The 20-year-old Colombian defender starred in the Dutch side’s run to this season’s Europa League final and last month Cadena Ser reported Ajax would be open to a sale for approximately €25m.

"Obviously I would like to play for Barcelona," Sanchez told Radio Barcelona when asked specifically about joining the Blaugrana.

"It is a huge compliment [to be linked with them]. Who doesn't want to play for a club as big as Barca? Everyone wants to be part of a team like that, they're one of the world's elite.

“I want to be clear that right now I am completely focused on Ajax.”

Sanchez joined the Amsterdam-based side in a €5m deal from Atletico Nacional last year.
