Bergamo Corriere claim Tottenham Hotspur could use Sergio Reguilon as a potential pawn of exchange with regards to Ruslan Malinovskyi and Atalanta this summer. 

Tottenham have already put Reguilon on the market after Conte left him out of his plans for the future (Daily Mail).

Spurs have also signed Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan on a free transfer (BBC Sport) to add competition in the left wing-back spot, with Ryan Sessegnon being the other option.

Malinovskyi, on the other hand, has been touted to leave the Serie A outfit in this transfer window, with Spurs mentioned as a potential destination in the past week (TuttoAtalanta and TuttoMercatoWeb).

Bergamo Corriere reveal that Olympique de Marseille became a probable destination for Malinovskyi shortly, but the deal collapsed after he revealed his desire to join Spurs.

Reguilon’s current wages and concerns over whether he would accept to team up with Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are mentioned as potential stumbling blocks.

Reguilon still has three years left in his contract (TransferMarkt), so it remains to be seen whether he would accept a step down in level and wages in order to get regular game time.

The Spaniard would replace Robin Gosens, who left Gasperini’s team to move to Inter on an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy him under specific conditions (The Athletic).

Spurs Web Opinion:

A Reguilon and Malinovskyi swap deal would make perfect sense for all involved. Both clubs get a player they want and part with a player who wants to leave. I would also value both players very similarly, so it could come down to whether Reguilon is keen on the move.
