After an enjoying an impressive season with Sevilla, it’s been no surprise to see Sergio Reguilon being linked with a big-money in this summer transfer window.
The Real Madrid ace spent the 2019/2020 campaign on loan in Seville, being a part of the side that went on to knock out Manchester United on their way to another Europa League triumph.
Reports in recent weeks have suggested that the Red Devils, and Tottenham, are both interested in signing him on a permanent basis, and if Jose Mourinho was watching Reguilon during Spain’s clash with Ukraine on Sunday, then he would have been very impressed.
Spain ran out 4-0 winners on the day, and whilst the likes of Sergio Ramos and Ansu Fati are surely the talk of the town for their goal-scoring performances, Reguilon enjoying a barn-storming game at left-back.
As per Whoscored, his 8.05 match rating was only behind Ramos and Fati, and when you look at some of the underlying numbers behind his performance, it’s easy to see why.
He had 100 touches of the ball, whilst his pass accuracy was at an astounding 95.7%. And as those watching the final stages of the Europa League saw, Reguilon’s impact in the final third of the pitch is huge, and he came out with his full skill-set against Ukraine.
He sent in seven crosses, provided four key passes, and had three shots himself, two of which found the target, whilst he also came up with an assist as well.
Reguilon could give Spurs a huge upgrade on Ben Davies at left-back, with the Wales international barely providing anything offensively last season for the north London side, picking up just one assist.
With Matt Doherty arriving to reinforce Mourinho’s team on the right-hand side, the priority for Daniel Levy must surely be to do the same for the opposite flank with the signing of Reguilon.
