According to Spanish publication AS, rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Sergio Reguilon is torn over whether to pursue an adventure in the Premier League or to return to Sevilla on loan.

The left-back’s fine performances at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium propelled him into the limelight after his energetic displays helped Julen Lopetegui’s side cap off an impressive campaign by lifting the Europa League.

Although Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is happy with his options at left-back (Football.London), Reguilion continues to be linked with Spurs, with reports indicating that the Lilywhites are the front-runners ahead of Manchester United to snap up the defender (Forbes).

However, AS paints an entirely different picture over the Real Madrid man’s future after claiming that his preference is to return to Sevilla on loan.

The report asserts that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also want to sign Reguilon and the Spanish internatonal is tempted by the prospect of a move to Old Trafford but it is said that he would prefer another loan at Sevilla since he has not given up hopes of returning to Los Blancos in the future as a starter.

Tottenham are not mentioned in the report as one of the suitors for the Spaniard with his options said to be between Manchester United and Sevilla.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear that Ben Davies is going to be our main starter this summer and while the Welshman might not be everybody’s cup of tea, he is a good fit for our system. Cirkin has shown plenty of promise and he is clearly rated highly but I would be surprised if we see him get more than a handful of games this season.

The decision of whether or not to go for another left-back this transfer window depends on whether Jose feels Sessegnon is good enough to be Davies’ main understudy and step up in case we need a more attacking option on the left side. Signing another attacking left-back like Reguilon will mean that another frustrating season on the sidelines for Sessegnon.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Sessegnon will only improve with game time, but as shown yesterday, Ben Davies is not a top 6 left back. None of the other so called top 6 would have him as better than 2nd or 3rd option there. He is far too slow. He was ideal as a squad man behind Danny Rose, when Danny was playing well and younger than he us now, after a knee injury, he was never quite the same. From what I saw of Reguilon for Seville, he has a good engine and is far more dangerous as an attacking left back. Wingers won’t have him for pace. I just can’t see our limited spend will go on him. But he is what we need long term. Sessegnon looks more of an attacker to me. If we play with wing backs it will help him and Doherty and Davies would not suit that role.
