Tottenham are on the verge of making their fourth summer signing after reaching an agreement with Real Madrid to sign left-back Sergio Reguilon, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The 23-year-old, who won the Europa League whilst on loan at Sevilla last season, had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this week, but Spurs have stepped in after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men weren’t interested in giving the La Liga outfit the benefit of a buyback clause.
Reguilon has been capped once for Spain – in their recent UEFA Nations League victory over Ukraine – and the Guardian believe that he’ll cost Tottenham around £27.6m, which would make him their second most expensive defender ever, behind Davinson Sanchez.
Romano’s also confirmed that the left-back will sign a five-year contact in north London after Spurs accepted a €45m buyback clause from the Spanish champions.
Jose Mourinho didn’t appear to be in the market for another left-back, but with Danny Rose not given a squad number and looking a certainty to leave, and Ryan Sessegnon still not ready, he’s decided to give Ben Davies some stiff competition ahead of a busy start to the campaign for Spurs.
Elsewhere, The Athletic’s David Ornstein has revealed that Tottenham remain locked in talks with Madrid about the possibility of re-signing Gareth Bale.
