Tottenham Hotspur have received no offers for Sergio Reguilon…
That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, who delivered an update on outgoings from Spurs to supporters on Twitter.
“Napoli have agreed deal in principle with Tottenham for loan signing of Tanguy Ndombele – loan fee €1m with an option price of €30m. Medical this week. Clubs from Spain & Italy have shown interest in Harry Winks. No offers for Sergio Reguilon,” he said.
It’s become apparent. though, just like Ndombele, the 25-year-old has no future under manager Antonio Conte after the Italian left him out of their pre-season schedule in a bid to resolve his future, per The Athletic.
That is yet to materialise with less than two weeks remaining in the transfer window and that has to be a worrying sign for chairman Daniel Levy as he’s endured his fair share of problems with the club’s big-money signings.
Ndombele, whilst he appears to finally be on his way out, has struggled to find suitors for much of the off-season and even in past windows, one of which saw him demand a transfer.
And just like the one-time club-record signing, Reguilon’s route back into the Spurs first-team appears unlikely, given the fact that Conte has signed his tried and trusted favourite, Ivan Perisic.
Ryan Sessegnon has also been starting matches in the Premier League ahead of the Croatian, so it’s those two that Conte will be running with throughout 2022/23.
After Conte’s arrival in November, the Spaniard struggled for form last term, registering only two goals and one assist in the top-flight. Some of his displays led to criticism.
Lilywhites insider Jon Wenham dubbed him “so average” and “just not that good” for his performance in the 3-1 win against West Ham United, whilst football.london reporter Alasdair Gold claimed that he won’t “ever trust that he’s going to put the ball in the net” in the defeat to Southampton.
That’s a key attribute for a wing-back playing under Conte and perhaps why the Italian doesn’t trust him whatsoever either.
But with a lack of interested parties, the north Londoners may well have to keep Reguilon on their books for longer than they’d want to, leading to a potential Ndombele 2.0 for Levy and co.
