Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the chance to sign one of Europe’s in-demand defenders this summer…
According to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the north London outfit have been handed an opportunity to clinch Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.
He was speaking to the Last Word On Spurs podcast on Wednesday evening but revealed that the club were yet to engage in talks over a potential deal.
Whilst reports in Spain have suggested that Manchester United have submitted an offer with last season’s loan club Sevilla also keen.
They also claim that he could cost in the region of €25m to €30m – which is around £23m to £26.5m.
The 23-year-old enjoyed an impressive spell at Sevilla this season which culminated in the La Liga outfit winning the Europa League once again.
Per WhoScored, Reguilon provided three goals and five assists whilst averaging 1.8 tackles, 1.5 dribbles, 1.3 key passes and 1.2 interceptions per game – this suggests that he likes to contribute at both ends of the pitch.
He could be the perfect solution to some of Jose Mourinho’s biggest problems. His side leaked 47 goals last term, the second-most of any top seven side whilst Ben Davies failed to record a single goal or assist.
Spurs’ first-choice left-back also averaged fewer tackles, interceptions and key passes, so there’s no denying that the Spaniard would be a major upgrade to the role.
Reguilon is described as a player that relies on his pace to get up and down the wing as well as someone who likes to beat his man to whip in a cross by FootballBH.
Back in April 2019, Mourinho lauded the Spaniard’s impact in the El Classico, so we know he’s already a huge fan of his.
Daniel Levy should absolutely sanction a move for Reguilon at the reported £23m, he’d be a tenfold improvement down the left flank.
AND in other news, Spurs may live to regret missing out on aggressive £25m marksman…
