It appears as if Sergio Reguilon has missed out on a move to Sevilla, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that the La Liga side are now closing in on the signing of Manchester United left-back Alex Telles.
Sergio Reguilon is one of a whole host of players who Tottenham are reportedly trying to shift before the transfer window closes in less than a month (Football.London).
Reports over recent weeks (The Athletic) had indicated the left-back could reunite with Julen Lopetegui at Sevilla, where he spent the 2019/20 season on loan from Real Madrid.
Spanish publications have also suggested that the 25-year-old remains on the radar of Barcelona, with Reguilon’s agent Kia Joorabchian alleged to have met with Barca directors Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff to discuss a move to Camp Nou (Diario AS).
If Romano’s latest update is to be believed, a move to Sevilla no longer appears to realistically be on the cards for the Tottenham man.
The journalist revealed that Lopetegui’s men are on the verge of agreeing on a deal with Man Utd for Tellas, even offering his trademark ‘here we go’.

Spurs Web Opinion
I suspect Barca are only eyeing Reguilon as a backup in case they are not able to get their top targets for the left-back role. I thought Sevilla was Reguilon’s most likely destination this summer, and so, this Tellas move potentially comes as a blow to Spurs as well as the Spaniard.
While there is no doubt that Tottenham have been more proactive than in previous windows in signing new players, they have failed miserably so far in getting players out of the door. While selling players in the current market was always going to be difficult, it seems like the club have left themselves too much to do in the final month of the window.
