Tottenham Hotspur: Sergio Reguilon could be sold this summer

Tottenham Hotspur: Sergio Reguilon could be sold this summer -Premier League News

Sky Sports pundit Kevin Phillips has urged Tottenham Hotspur to raise transfer funds and free some salary by selling left-back Sergio Reguilon this summer.

The Lowdown: Could Reguilon leave Spurs?

The 25-year-old has had a mixed spell with the north London club since the arrival of Antonio Conte in N17.

Indeed, it was revealed just last week that a Spurs source told Football Insider that Fabio Paratici would be willing to listen to offers for the defender and would let him leave at the right price, following interest from an unnamed Spanish club.

The report also claimed that the fee needed to complete a deal would be a lot less than the initial £43m buyback option available to Real Madrid, and former Sunderland striker Phillips believes that Reguilon could “have his eye” on a return to Spain after failing to make a strong impression at Tottenham.

The Latest: Reguilon not in Conte’s plans

Speaking to Football Insider about a possible move away from north London for the Spaniard, Phillips said: “From the outside looking in, that seems to make a lot of sense.

“He’s not really been first choice since Conte has come in, so I think it’s fair to say he isn’t in the manager’s plans going forward.

“If he can free that salary up by selling him on – then Tottenham can go out and have some money to play with in the transfer market. We all know they need to make a few signings, so that makes sense from a business point of view.

“From the player’s perspective as well, he could have his eye on a move back to Spain. That is a move which really makes sense from all angles, really.”

The Verdict: Reguilon might have to move

Despite making 31 appearances in all competitions for Spurs so far this season, with five goal contributions during that time (as per Transfermarkt), the six-time Spain international has recently dropped down the pecking order under Conte, who has preferred the likes of Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon.

The £68k-per-week ace has shown plenty of potential during his time at Tottenham but hasn’t quite been able to fully establish his position in the starting XI.

As a consequence, Reguilon – who was once hailed as a “quality” player by ex-Leeds striker Noel Whelan – will realise that his future may be uncertain ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

Should the 25-year-old want to get some regular game-time under his belt next season, then a move elsewhere could prove to be the best option in the long run.
