Arsenal and Tottenham to fight it out for Real Madrid player

Real Madrid loanee is a target for North London clubs Arsenal and Spurs.

Sergio Reguilon broke into the first team for Real Madrid in 2018-19. Reguilon is a youth academy player of Madrid who was with the club from 2005 to 2015.

The 23-year-old was a part of the Madrid squad under head coach Julen Lopetegui. He bagged 3 assists in 22 appearances for the club. However, the return of Zinedine Zidane saw the player lose his place in the team.

Under Zidane Madrid was aggressively signing players to bolster their team. As a result, Sergio Reguilon was loaned out to Sevilla without an option to permanently sign him.

Since then Sergio Reguilon has been an important part of the Sevilla squad. He has played 22 matches for the Spanish club this season and has 1 goal and 4 assists.

Earlier this month Reguilon told ABCSevilla, “I love my teammates, the fans and the city of Sevilla.”However, when the season is over I will have to go back to Madrid and then I don’t know what will happen after that.”

It seems that decision lies in Madrid and Zidane. If they have an interest in the player they can extend his loan at Sevilla. On the other hand, they can also opt to cash in on the player and he has attracted interest from various clubs.

Arsenal and Tottenham have shown an interest in the player.

According to the Sun Arsenal and Tottenham, representatives have made contact with Sevilla regarding Sergio Reguilon. Sergio’s current transfer value stands at 20 million. His loan spell at Sevilla also ends by June and this would be a good time to try to sign him.

Arsenal already has a very exciting player at left-back in Bukayo Saka. Saka has 30 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions. Although among interest from Dortmund and Manchester United Saka is yet to sign a contract extension. Reguilon could be Saka’s replacement.

Tottenham too has troubles at the left-back position as Ben Davies is the only one. Rose is out on a loan and possibly set to leave Tottenham. Sergio could be a good boost to Mourinho’s squad.

But the Spaniard is still tied to Madrid till 2023. Real Madrid has said that Zidane’s word will be their final call on Sergio’s future. But the Real manager is yet to break his silence. A lucrative offer from either of the clubs could be enough to tempt him.
