Fabrizio Romano reports that Sergio Reguilon has turned down the chance to join Nottingham Forest for the moment, as he has other priorities. 

There has been plenty of speculation regarding Reguilon’s future over the last seven days.

Reports from Italy continue to suggest that the left-back could be used by Spurs as a makeweight in a deal to sign Ruslan Malinovskyi from Atalanta (Tutto Atalanta) while Lazio are also thought to be eyeing a move for the Spaniard (CalcioMercato).

The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported on Monday that Forest had opened talks with Spurs regarding a loan deal for the 25-year-old. Spurs allegedly informed the newly promoted club that they would have to cover Reguilon’s full salary in the event the deal goes through.

The Daily Mail also backed up Forest’s interest in the Tottenham star on Tuesday but the publication claimed the left-back had picked up an injury which was holding up any transfer.

However, Romano has now remarked that Reguilon has no interest in joining Steve Cooper’s side as the former Real Madrid man has ‘different priorities’.

The journalist said on the latest episode of the Here We Go Podcast (23/08/22) regarding the defender’s future: “A lot of rumours regarding Nottingham Forest but I am told that, for the moment, the player has different priorities. So, it is a ‘no’ but let’s see what happens with Reguilon.”

It is understandable why Reguilon would not want to move to Forest, given that the World Cup is just around the corner. The 25-year-old might want to join a relatively big club so that he remains in Luis Enrique’s thought process.

Reguilon would probably prefer to return to La Liga if it were up to him but it does not appear as if any Spanish club is showing concrete interest in his services at the moment.
