Sevilla appear to have taken a step forward in their pursuit of Sergio Reguilon.
The latest reports in Spain suggest that Sevilla are set to sign Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon.
The 22-year-old has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2020.
Sergio Reguilon made 22 appearances across all competitions for Real Madrid, supplying 3 assists in return.
The 22-year-old has long been touted as one of Spain’s most promising young talents. Reguilon has represented Spain at Under-21 level, winning one cap.
The Real Madrid manager does not see him in his plans and would be open to letting him leave.
Sevilla have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from Spain, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The report claims that Sevilla have extensively scouted Reguilon and are considering a move for the defender. Reguilon has the talent to play many roles in defense.
According to Football Espana (via Dario AS), “Sevilla have made contact with Real Madrid over a possible transfer of full-back Sergio Reguilon this summer, say reports in Spain. The defender has risen to prominence this season for Los Blancos having become a regular for the club’s Castilla side over the past few campaigns. Dario AS cite a report in Cadena Ser that the Andalusian club believe the 22-year-old could be available should Madrid sign Ferland Mendy, with Marcelo already at the club. Alaves, Leganes and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked to Reguilon but Julen Lopetegui’s appointment at Sevilla is thought to give them the edge. The former Spain boss coached the left-back at Madrid and is said to have given his seal of approval to Sevilla’s attempts to land him.”
