Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf say Tottenham target Davinson Sanchez is also wanted by Chelsea.

It’s claimed that Real Madrid are also interested in the Colombian defender, who is expected to move before the transfer window closes.

De Telegraaf’s story came as Spurs began negotiations with Ajax over a transfer fee for the player.

Meanwhile, Tottenham and West Ham have again been linked with Lazio’s Keita Balde after he reacted angrily to being left out for the Italian Super Cup.

The 22-year-old forward, who has been linked with several clubs, was reportedly axed after angling for a move to Juventus.

He posted on Twitter that the decision “profoundly hurt” and put him “in a psychologically uncomfortable position.”

The Daily Mirror say Lazio do not want to sell him to Juve and that this has opened the way for Spurs and West Ham as well as Monaco.

West Ham believe they could complete the £36m signing of Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho within the next week, again according to the Mirror.

The Daily Express say Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be given £130m to spend before the transfer window closes.

And the Mirror claim Chelsea could look to beat Manchester United to the signing of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.
