Brighton and Hove Albion have failed with a proposed move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon, according to The Guardian.
The Seagulls are on the hunt for a new left wing-back with Marc Cucurella on the verge of a £52.5million move to Chelsea.
Reguilon has found himself left out of Antonio Conte’s plans having been left back in London for the pre-season tour of South Korea and has also not been included in the subsequent matches against Rangers and AS Roma.
The Spaniard has been linked with a move back to La Liga with former club Sevilla said to be keen on landing the 25-year-old (Mail).
Antonio Conte has decided instead to utilise Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic as his options at left wing-back, while the club have also today been linked with a move for Atalanta’s Destiny Udogie (Gianluca Di Marzio).
With the greatest respect to Brighton, Reguilon is likely to be holding out for a return to Spain with the likes of Sevilla and Barcelona both rumoured to be keen on the defender.
Reguilon has plenty of pace, but his all-around game is not to the level that Conte demands of his wing-backs, defensively he is weak and he also lacks composure when in front of goal.
