Marca claim that Real Madrid will demand a fee of between €20 million and €25 million for rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Sergio Reguilon.

Reguilon’s reputation has soared during his loan spell at Sevilla last season, with the left-back starring in the club’s victorious Europa League campaign.

ESPN reported at the start of August that Chelsea and Spurs were both interested in the left-back but the Blues have since signed up Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that while Tottenham do admire the Spaniard, a new left-back is not a top priority for Jose Mourinho ahead of the new campaign.

Marca claim that Spurs are locked in a four-horse race for the 23-year-old along with Manchester United, Juventus and Inter Milan.

The report suggests that Reguilon is unlikely to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy ahead of him in the pecking order.

It is suggested that Los Blancos will cash in on the left-back, with the defender expected to make a decision on his future shortly.

Spurs Web Opinion

Ben Davies is going to be our first choice left-back next season as he is a perfect fit for the system we play under Mourinho. However, it would be useful to have a more attack-minded option on the bench to give ourselves more tactical flexibility.

Neither Cirkin nor Tanganga are particularly effective going forward and both players are still learning their trade. Sessegnon potentially does have the attacking quality required but it is unclear if Jose views him as a left-back or a left-winger.

Alasdair Gold has suggested that we could make a move for Reguilon if he became available on a cut-price deal. While €20m does seem like a bargain, I do not expect us to move for a left-back before we sign a backup striker and another centre-back.
