TOTTENHAM are set to start their summer spending with an outlay of up to £85m on three players.

In the week that their transfer policy was criticised by England left-back Danny Rose, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is now poised to act.

Spurs have made an opening offer of £20m for Ajax's Colombian centre-back Davinson Sanchez, 21, but could eventually end up paying £35m.

Dutch sources have told the Daily Star Sunday that Holland's top club were prepared to sell him for £22.6m.

But with transfer fees escalating, Ajax could now demand £35m.

Ajax have also offered Sanchez a new contract in an attempt to persuade him to stay but he is expected to tell them he wants to join Tottenham.

Talks were held in Amsterdam yesterday and the White Hart Lane outfit are confident a deal will be agreed this week.

Meanwhile, Everton's Ross Barkley, 23, remains the top target for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and he still hopes that a £30m deal can be agreed before the transfer window closes.

Tottenham also want a right-back to replace Kyle Walker, as competition for Kieran Trippier.

They are prepared to pay £20m with Valencia's Joao Cancelo, 23, one target.

What is clear is that Spurs, who start their season at Newcastle today, WILL strengthen their squad before the end of the month.
