Premier League clubs interested in signing Tottenham’s Sergio Reguilon this summer

Sergio Reguilon is not expected to be a part of Tottenham Hotspur‘s plans next season after he was out on loan for all of last season and is about to enter the last year of his contract in London.

The Spanish left-back did not have a productive loan spell with Manchester United in the first half of the campaign but was impressive with Brentford thereafter as he started 14 matches and provided four assists for Thomas Frank’s men.

According to Diario AS, there is a market for his services in England itself with Manchester United and West Ham United both considering his permanent signing ahead of next season.

The Red Devils have been frustrated with the constant fitness problems surrounding Tyrell Malacia and are on the lookout for a backup, who will eventually replace Luke Shaw.

West Ham, meanwhile, are expected to be in the running for Reguilon as a result of Aaron Creswell being 34 and edging towards the dusk of his career.

Spurs are understood to be valuing Reguilon at £27.5 million, a sum that both, Man United and West Ham will be able to afford. However, the 27-year-old’s wages could prove to be a concern.

Reguilon is unlikely to prefer a transfer to Manchester United after having a poor experience at Old Trafford last season. His role in 2024/25 will not change as he will continue to be Shaw’s understudy.

West Ham would be a more appealing destination for Reguilon, where he would have the chance to work under his compatriot and former manager, Julen Lopetegui.

Lopetegui handed Reguilon his debut at Real Madrid and then made him a crucial member of his squad at Sevilla. He is also extremely familiar with what the player can bring to the table.

Plus, given Creswell’s age, the Spaniard has everything it takes to become a first-choice left-back with the Hammers right from the word go.

That, however, will come at the cost of a reduced financial package.

It remains to be seen what the player’s drivers are between regular minutes and a lucrative contract, although it is very much on the cards that he departs north London this summer in search of greener pastures and regular minutes.
