Lazio plan last-minute approach for Tottenham star and Atalanta transfer target Sergio Reguilon
It is no secret that Spurs deem Reguilon as expendable. The Spain international is said to have been training individually earlier this month amidst talks of a move away from N17.
Lazio, however, may not have it easy in their bid to sign the £21million-rated left-back. Atalanta are also keen on signing the 25-year-old after they lost flying wing-back Robin Gosens earlier this year.
Le Aquile, managed by former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, could use a left-back in their team. Dimitrije Kamenovic, at 22, isn’t the most experienced in that position while Riza Durmisi’s future at Lazio’s starting XI is uncertain.
Welcome money for Spurs
The 28-year-old returned this summer from his loan spell at Sparta Rotterdam while Jordan Lukaku left the club as a free agent. Reguilon could be a fit for Sarri’s team but it remains to be seen if they formalise their interest in the former Real Madrid man.
Spurs certainly have little to no use for Reguilon. Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic are in a tightly-contested battle to become Antonio Conte’s starting left-wing-back.
Reguilon would also be aware that Marco Alonso and Jordi Alba both could be competing for a spot in Barcelona’s starting XI this season if the Chelsea left-back seals a move to Camp Nou.

This could, in a way, give Reguilon some edge if he wants to be Luis Enrique’s starting left-back at the FIFA World Cup in November. But for that, regular playing time would undoubtedly be important, something that he can’t get at Spurs for now.
