Sevilla remain interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon, however, continue to be concerned about the finances behind a potential deal, according to ABC de Sevilla. 

The report claims the La Liga side have placed the 26-year-old on a shortlist of left-back targets, although the likely steep price tag and wages could prove to be stumbling blocks  in a transfer. 

It also explains paying a high fee could break the new transfer strategy set by Sevilla’s sporting directors, which is for the club to acquire players who can be sold for profit in the future. 

It comes after the print edition of AS (13/07/22 — via Sport Witness) stated Reguilon is open to rejoining Julen Lopetegui’s side but added the Spain international’s wages are slowing the process. 

Reguilon, who joined Spurs in 2020 from Real Madrid, spent the season prior on loan with Sevilla and played 38 games (Transfermarkt) as he helped the club win their sixth Europa League title. 

He has since struggled to make his mark with injuries often plaguing his consistency, which was made apparent towards the end of last season as Ryan Sessegnon succeeded him. 

Reguilon was omitted from the Spurs squad for the pre-season tour of South Korea after he remained in north London alongside Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Winks. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Sevilla definitely seem keen to re-sign Reguilon but frustratingly there doesn’t look to be much progress being made due to the expenses behind a potential deal. 

The move would be a good one for both parties as Reguilon hasn’t lived up to expectations at Spurs, so hopefully, there will be some kind of resolution before the end of the window.
