The 21-year-old Colombian has been gradually introduced to the Tottenham starting XI throughout the season by Mauricio Pochettino, but with Toby Alderweireld continuing to struggle with injury, Sanchez has been handed an early opportunity to prove his worth.
A £40 million signing from Ajax last summer, it’s probably fair to say that not a lot of Tottenham followers would’ve been familiar with Sanchez or his cannon of work up to this point in his short career.
However, he’s done nothing but impress pretty much ever since he arrived in the capital, and watching him stroll through tonight’s first-half against Swansea City, some supporters could barely contain themselves on social media:
Genuinely think Davinson Sanchez is the best young CB in the world.

what a player Davinson Sanchez is. beyond cool and collected on the ball, and an absolute rock in defense.

How good does Davinson Sanchez look hands down the fastest CB in the world and only 21, €42 million is starting to look like a steal ?

What do you think of Sanchez and his performances since he’s joined Tottenham? Is he a future legend?
