Tottenham could pursue 'bargain' deal for £22.5m ace


Jose Mourinho faces the biggest challenge of his career in Tottenham Hotspur.

The Portuguese manager is a proven winner - something that he's proven at almost every club that he's ever worked at.

But in north London he has his work cut out.

After joining the club last season, Mourinho faces the task of rebuilding the first team squad to help them to challenge for major trophies.

Spurs finished in sixth place last term and qualified for the Europa League, but this term expectations will be much higher.

A top four finish is the main target, while winning a trophy will also go a long way to helping Mourinho to endear himself to the supporters.

But doing so will be tricky.

Daniel Levy has already funded deals for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty. but it seems that the club aren't done yet.


There's been plenty of transfer speculation surrounding the club, including reports of interest in Sergio Reguilon.

Valued at £22.5million, The Real Madrid man is thought to be available this term and is attracting the attention of Manchester United among other.

While Spurs have been credited with an interest, Football London reporter Rob Guest has suggested that Tottenham would only be keen if it was a bargain deal.

Writing in a Q&A, Guest said: "Spurs are not looking to sign a left-back this summer but if Reguilon came available in a bargain deal they would be tempted to move for him as they admire him.

"However, it's not a priority area at present as the likes of Tanganga, Sessegnon and Cirkin can cover for Davies."


GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Tottenham Hotspur are praying that they can secure some big signings before the transfer window slams shut.

Unfortunately it seems like that a deal for Sergio Reguilon will not be one of them.

Spurs have a number of options at left back currently, and while there's an argument that the Real Madrid man would be an update on all of them, a move seems unlikely.

Such a deal would risk upsetting the other options in the squad, and that's not something that Jose Mourinho wants to happen.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic funds are a little bit limited in north London and that means that the club are likely to prioritise other positions.

One of those is a striker, and that's an area that I firmly expect to see Tottenham strengthen in the coming weeks.
