Despite being linked with several clubs over the summer and appearing to be out of favour with Antonio Conte, a report from Spain now suggests Spurs defender Sergio Reguilon may stay at the club for another season.
Reguilon was reportedly told that he should look for another club this summer, after finding himself on the fringe of Conte’s squad (Evening Standard). The Spanish defender was even left out of the club’s pre-season tour to South Korea.
Clubs from Spain and Italy have circled the 25-year-old all summer, but no move has materialised at this stage.
Reguilon himself was keen on a return to Sevilla (90Min), but their interest cooled. In the past week, Serie A teams Atalanta (Tutto Atalanta) and Lazio (CalcioMercato) have also been linked with the left-back.
More recently, Premier League clubs have started to pay attention to Reguilon’s status. Newly-promoted Nottingham Forest apparently wanted to explore a loan move for the Spain international (The Athletic), but Fabrizio Romano claimed Reguilon had “different priorities.”
Fellow Premier League new boys Fulham have also been looking into arranging a loan move for the Spurs player (The Sun), but it has now been suggested that Reguilon is going nowhere.
Spanish outlet AS claims that “half the Premier League” has shown an interest in Reguilon. Nevertheless, with time and options running out, the report states that those close to Reguilon think he will stay at Spurs for at least another year.

It’s hard to keep track of what’s happening with Sergio Reguilon, in what has been one of the more frustrating and confusing transfer sagas for Tottenham Hotspur this summer. He’s one of those players who, if the club can move him on, that’s great.
At the same time though, if he does end up sticking around, he could prove to be a useful squad player in case of injuries. Either way, his situation needs to be resolved soon.
