Report reveals how Sergio Reguilon feels about potential move to Lazio

Corriere dello Sport report that Lazio have decided to target Tottenham Hotspur wing-back Sergio Reguilon after they lost out in their pursuit of Chelsea ace Emerson Palmieri to West Ham United.

The Serie A club are looking into the market for a left-back, and Emerson was their top target for this summer.

However, Fabrizio Romano has given his famous “Here We Go” catchphrase for the Italian international’s move to West Ham which has dealt a damning transfer blow to Lazio.

The Italian outfit are searching for alternatives at the moment and have identified Reguilon and Marcos Alonso as two options. Tottenham have already listed the 25-year-old as available for a transfer after Antonio Conte made his feelings clear (Evening Standard).

CalcioMercato also reported Lazio’s interest in Reguilon earlier this week, and Corriere dello Sport now claim the left-back is open to a potential move, although there have been no discussions between the Serie A club and Fabio Paratici yet.

Le Aquile would like to sign Reguilon on an initial loan move with an option to buy him permanently in the future. However, they also want Conte’s team to pay half of his salary for the season, which is stated to be in the region of €3.6m (£3.04m).

Nottingham Forest are also claimed to be in the mix to sign the Spaniard, and they have even tabled an offer for his services which could complicate things for Sarri’s side.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Unwanted players like Reguilon who are still in the squad must be sold or loaned at all costs, as failing to do so could hamper the harmony within the team and Spurs’ finances.

However, if the former Real Madrid star is also intrigued by the prospect of switching to Forest, then Spurs have an obvious decision in hand between the Reds and Lazio. Tottenham must simply look for the better proposal among the two and facilitate a move based on that offer.
