Spurs eye Sergio Reguilon replacement in Borna Sosa

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move for Borna Sosa this summer…

What’s the word?

That’s according to Sport Bild’s Head of Football Christian Falk, who claims that Spurs have entered the race to sign the 24-year-old left wing-back alongside arch-rivals Arsenal, whilst Chelsea discussed a move for him during the winter following Ben Chilwell’s long-term injury.

At the time, Sky Germany (via the Metro) claim the Bundesliga outfit were holding out for €30m (£25m) and that may rise by the end of the season as the five-cap Croatia international is a key part of the squad.

Should Spurs sign Borna Sosa?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

Bye-bye Reguilon?

These links come amid reports linking Sergio Reguilon with a move back to Real Madrid – perhaps merely a coincidence but it is certainly interesting timing.

The Sunday Mirror (via Sky Sports) claim that the LaLiga giants are keen to activate the buy-back clause they put in the deal back in the summer of 2020.

That’s hardly a surprise with Marcelo, 33, coming towards the back end of his glistening career, and the Spaniard has certainly impressed during his time in north London.

Sosa would be an intriguing successor – one of a similar age and a similar profile to that of the coveted 25-year-old.

As per WhoScored, the £18m-rated dynamo ranks amongst VfB’s top performers for the season so far and it’s in attack where he has impressed the most, leading the way for creativity with an average of 1.9 key passes per game, on top of 1.1 dribbles.

A truly wasted talent...

His ability to cross the ball is particularly appealing, having managed 2.4 successful attempts per game too, and it’s no wonder he looked up to David Beckham.

“Borna’s said himself that David Beckham is his role model, and I think he has the same qualities,” claimed Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat to Bundesliga.com.

“He puts in crosses from every angle: sometimes chipped, sometimes drilled, sometimes flat, sometimes in behind, sometimes to the front post, other times to the back post. His left foot is a real weapon.”

Ultimately, this is right up Antonio Conte’s street as Sosa appears to be a perfect fit for his wing-back system in north London, so if Reguilon were to leave Spurs, then the Croatian wouldn’t be a bad alternative.

As such, he must be considered a top target should the Spaniard depart anytime soon.
