Tottenham Hotspur star Sergio Reguilon could be close to a Hotspur Way exit with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Lazio showing interest, according to Sun reporter Tom Barclay.
Spurs have spent nearly £110million to bolster head coach Antonio Conte’s squad during the transfer window, but there could be more in and out before the 11pm deadline on 1 september.
What is the latest news about Reguilon?
According to The Sun, Tottenham are in talks with Italian giants Lazio over a loan move which would see Reguilon swap the Premier League for Serie A.
The report suggests Spurs were hoping to offload the six-cap Spain international on a permanent basis, but Lazio are locked in negotiations over a temporary switch which would include an option to buy.
Newly promoted Premier League side Fulham are also exploring the possibility of securing Reguilon’s services on loan before the transfer window closes.
It is understood that Nottingham Forest are another club considering a move for left-back and talks have taken place between the clubs in recent weeks.
Atletico Madrid have joined the race to sign Reguilon, with talks progressing over a loan move to the La Liga giants.
What did Tom Barclay say about Reguilon?
Although he has doubts whether Nottingham Forest are in the running for Reguilon’s services, Barclay understands the Tottenham star is in demand ahead of the final days of the transfer window.
The journalist is confident that at least three clubs are ready to do business before Thursday’s deadline.
Barclay told GIVEMESPORT: “I’m not sure about Forest, but I know the club are in talks with Lazio.
“I know there is definite interest from Fulham. I know there have been reports that there have been talks with Fulham as well but from the Fulham side I was told yesterday that there are no talks yet but there is interest certain for him.
“Besides, I think Atletico Madrid are looking at him too.”
Should Spurs allow Reguilon to leave on loan?
Tottenham may have parted ways with £32million to sign Reguilon from Real Madrid two years ago but it’s clear he’s not in Conte’s plans.
The 25-year-old is currently training alone, such is the Italian’s desire to offload the full-back so it would make sense to identify an escape route.
Reguilon’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium contract – which is worth £68,000 a week – still has almost three years to run, but sanctioning a loan move could be beneficial if a permanent buyer cannot be found.
Indeed, the North Londoners are believed to want the Spaniard’s wages fully covered by his loan club.
