Borussia Dortmund eye a move for Tottenham loanee Sergio Reguilon

With the aim of bolstering their defence over the January transfer window, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund eye a move for Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon. At present, Ramy Bensebaini is the only natural left-back at Edin Terzic’s disposal at the Signal Iduna Park.

Reguilon, currently out on loan at Manchester United, offers a great threat in the final third and also provides the team with a very attacking style of defence. He’s great when it comes to progressive passing as well which might help Dortmund score more goals.

Even though he’s not the best at one-versus-one situations, his counter-pressing style might suit Dortmund. At Manchester United on loan so far, he has only played second fiddle to Luke Shaw pushing many to wonder why the Red Devils sought him in the first place. Anyways, Dortmund’s interest in securing Reguilon’s services is as per Patrick Berger of Sky via Twitter.

Dortmund apparently made an enquiry for a six-month loan deal. According to Berger, the inclusion of a January break clause in Reguilon’s contract with Manchester United offers Tottenham the chance to loan him to a team wherein there shall be no hindrance in terms of development.

What next for Reguilon?

Moreover, assuming he shall return to Tottenham and fit into manager Ange Postecoglou’s plans next summer, it would bode best for both, player and manager to handle the situation with the understanding that the Spaniard could offer Ange a strong player next summer, and for that, he needs to play out on loan at a team where there shall not be a hindrance to playing time.

Reguilon has surely not been the part at United. Their style of play does not suit the former Real Madrid man one bit and it is best if we call him back in the January window to send him on loan once again to a club that thrives on attacking full-backs, making the best use of Reguilon’s skills and potential.

Erik ten Hag has not utilised Sergio Reguilon to the best of his abilities.

Hopefully, Dortmund persists with their interest in the left-back and pursue the Lilywhites to call him back from a struggling Manchester United team and send him to Dortmund, who are also struggling, but play in a way that Reguilon might thrive in.

Alternatively, breaking his contract with Manchester United and retaining him at Hotspur Way is definitely not a bad shout. He was surplus to requirements under Antonio Conte and that surely won’t be the case under Postecoglou given the Greek-Australian’s high-tempo possession-based style of play.
