Davinson Sanchez had an average pass accuracy of 89% in the Eredivisie last season.

The Colombian only joined move to Amsterdam from Atletico Nacional previous year but made a huge impression in his 46 outings last season, including a string of fine displays in Ajax's run to the Europa League final.

Lower-than-expected CPI data will be bullish for gold because it will reduce the chances of a Fed rate hike later this year. Inflation has risen 1.7% over the past 12 months, suggesting that inflation pressures remain well under control.

Southampton are among the clubs who have an interest in Tottenham centre-back Kevin Wimmer.

Ajax allowed Sanchez to remain with Atlético Nacional squad as they won the 2016 Copa Libertadores but after joining up with his new teammates he became a crucial member of Peter Bosz's squad. He was instrumental in the Eredivisie club's run to the Europa League final, where they lost to Manchester United, and he was named the club's player of the year.

Mourinho confirmed yesterday that the club were in talks about re-signing the Swede for the second half of the new campaign. Rose, 27, wants to win trophies and could quit Spurs for a move to a Premier League rival.

The likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Chelsea have been courting him for a while but now the 21-year old looks poised to make the move to North London in a £35 million move.

Elsewhere, across last season, he completed 12 of his 17 take-ons (71% success rate) whilst averaging 2 interceptions per game and winning 59% of his headed duels. In fact, the youngster also scored with six goals and provided two assists. This may sometimes leave Ajax open at the back, but with the Colombian's pace he often gets back into position quickly. He netted an overhead kick against AZ and a powerful shot from distance v Heracles.

Wozniacki has won five of six career meetings between the two, and they've all come in straight-set fashion. Federer makes another final. "A bit surprising, to be quite honest, because I hadn't practiced much".

Despite perhaps not requiring a new centre-back Davinson Sánchez would significantly improve Tottenham's starting eleven, arguably being an upgrade on Eric Dier, which would also been good for Spurs in the way that it allows Eric Dier to be free to move back into central midfield.
