The agent of Tottenham Hotspur defender Davinson Sanchez is in London to negotiate the transfer of the player to AS Monaco, according to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Colombian international is out of favour at Spurs and the Ligue 1 club are pushing to sign him ahead of the transfer deadline on Friday.
Sanchez joined Tottenham from Ajax in the summer of 2017 and has played 207 games across all competitions so far.

However, the 27-year-old started just eight Premier League games last term and has failed to convince manager Ange Postecoglou, making one league appearance so far this term.
Sanchez is in the final 12 months of his deal and is starting to get frustrated with his lack of regular playing time over the past two seasons.
Spurs brought in left-sided centre-back Micky van de Ven from Wolfsburg earlier this summer, and the Dutchman has established himself as a regular in central defence alongside Cristian Romero, featuring in all three Premier League games of the season so far.
Tottenham also want Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon gone having already loaned both Djed Spence and Joe Rodon to Leeds United, while they opted against signing Aston Villa-bound Clement Lenglet permanently after his loan spell from Barcelona.
The North London club have a new-look defence and it remains to be seen if they have plans to bring in more options in the position in the coming hours.
Spurs also are hoping to get Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso out and are keen to sign Nottingham Forest forward Brennan Johnson and Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.
Tottenham were eliminated in the second round of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Fulham on Tuesday night, and they no longer need many players as they only have the Premier League and FA Cup to play for the rest of the season.
