Spurs: Antonio Conte must ruthlessly axe Sergio Reguilon this summer

Having made a £32m move to Tottenham Hotspur from Real Madrid back in the summer of 2020, initial expectations for Sergio Reguilon amongst the Spurs fanbase would have undoubtedly been extremely high.

However, after a patchy debut season in north London – in which the 25-year-old averaged a SofaScore match rating of 6.74 over his 27 Premier League appearances – the Spain international has once again struggled to find any real level of form over his 23 league outings in the current campaign – with the defender losing his starting spot at left wing-back to Ryan Sessegnon earlier this year, prior to the 21-year-old picking up a hamstring injury.

Do you think Reguilon is good enough for Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Indeed, the £68k-per-week full-back’s general level of form in 2021/22 was summed up by his performance in the 3-1 win over West Ham United last Sunday, with Tottenham insider John Wenham stating his belief that Reguilon’s display against the Hammers was one of his worst in a Spurs shirt.

In a recent interview with Football Insider, Wenham said: “He’s so average it’s untrue. I always go back to these constant rumours about Barcelona or Real Madrid being interested in him. There’s always stuff about them paying a premium for him, it’s nonsense.

“He’s just not that good. He’s the best of the full-backs we have, but that’s not really praise at this point. Against Manchester United, he didn’t offer anything. Against West Ham was the same.

“For me, he is the worst of the bunch. He wasted so many chances against West Ham. You can absolutely see why Conte kept playing Sessegnon over him until he got injured. He wastes so many good crossing opportunities. He was very, very poor [against West Ham]. It’s probably his worst game for Tottenham.”

A truly wasted talent...

It was not only Wenham who felt that the £25.2m-rated man was poor on Sunday, with PA Sport journalist Jonathan Veal claiming on Twitter that he has “never seen someone so scared when they enter the penalty area” than Reguilon, while Tom Young labelled the Spaniard’s display as “pathetic.”

As such, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona reported to be interested in a move for the left-back this summer – with the former believed to possess a £43m buy-back clause for the 25-year-old – it would appear highly advisable for Conte to cash in on the defender at the end of the season, as the player who Jonathan Woodgate dubbed “horrendous” simply does not appear to be of the standard required for Tottenham.
