Sevilla remain interested in Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon but a transfer is dependent on the sale of Jules Kounde, according to the print edition of ABC Sevilla (20/07/22 via Sport Witness). 

The Andalusian side’s pursuit of Reguilon will be made easier if they are able to secure enough funds, while they are hoping to gain a free run at a transfer if other suitors do not meet Spurs’ demands. 

The report notes Spurs, who are actively looking to offload the 25-year-old, are hoping to recoup a fee close to the €30 million (£25.5m) they paid Real Madrid for his switch in 2020.

Rumours of Reguilon making a move back to Sevilla, where he enjoyed a positive loan spell in 2019-20, come after the Spain international endured a difficult tail end of the previous campaign. 

Inconsistency coupled with injury saw him lose his starting place in the Spurs fold to Ryan Sessegnon as Spurs ended strongly by qualifying for the Champions League. 

Reguilon’s future in north London was made clear when he was not named in Antonio Conte’s pre-season squad for the tour of South Korea. 

Ironically, Tottenham’s London rivals Chelsea are said to be close to signing Kounde after submitting a bid of £55m (SkySports). If ABC Sevilla are to be believed that could help fund the purchase of Reguilon from Spurs.

From pre-season so far, it looks clear that Reguilon is not in Conte’s current plans for the upcoming season especially with Ivan Perisic arriving. 

A move back to Spain and LaLiga looks to be the best move for Reguilon and Spurs too and hopefully some kind of agreement can be reached so they can recoup a decent transfer fee.
