There will be ‘another’ player leaving Tottenham this summer. Sergio Reguilon, 27, is a fullback who left on loan last season after failing to establish himself at Spurs. He has previously named Son Heung-min as his idol in interviews.
Spain’s Elgodichital reported on July 18 (KST), “Sevilla want to bring Leguillon back to the club. Sevilla need to strengthen the left fullback position this summer. The player is not part of Tottenham’s plans, so the transfer fee is unlikely to be very high. The player will also want to return to Sevilla,” the report said.
Leguillon last played for Sevilla on loan in the 2019-20 season, when he was a member of Real Madrid. He made 31 appearances (29 starts) in the Spanish Primera Liga, scoring two goals. At the time, Leguillon set career highs in both minutes played and goals scored. He also helped the club win the UEFA Europa League. Leguillon and Sevilla have fond memories of each other.
After his move to Tottenham, he struggled. In his first season, he played 27 league games (26 starts), but his minutes dropped to 25 (22 starts) the following season. As time went on, he was gradually pushed to the fringes. Eventually, he was sent on loan to Atletico (AT) Madrid last summer. Now that his loan deal is over, he’s facing a return to Tottenham.
He didn’t get much of a chance at AT Madrid last season. He made just 11 appearances in the league (two starts). Injuries kept him out of the lineup from the start of the season. Even after his brief absence, he didn’t make much of an impact, which makes it even harder to categorize him as an important resource for Tottenham. With Destiny Udoh returning from his loan spell, they have a clear first-team option. That’s why the general consensus is that he’ll be on the market for sale.
Sevilla have lost Alexis Sanchez to parent club Manchester United, and Marcos Acuña has also been heavily linked with a move this summer. They are in desperate need of a left fullback, and Leguillon’s presence is bound to attract attention as they have a good history with each other.
Sevilla plan to use the proceeds from the sale of Aquino, who is being courted by several Italian Serie A clubs, to make a move for Reguilon. The source added: “Leguillon is not part of Tottenham’s plans, so the transfer fee will not be a big one. It’s clear that he wants to return to Sevilla. He’ll be looking to bounce back after a tough couple of seasons at home. Barring any major changes, we could see him playing for Sevilla next season.”
Meanwhile, in a special interview published on the club’s official website after his move to Tottenham, Leguillon revealed that he was “a big fan of Son Heung-min” when asked if he had any idols in the Premier League as a child. Heung-min and Reggilon have been spotted getting along on and off the field.먹튀검증
Tottenham, who are likely to lose Reggilon, have already lost Lucas Moura to the club and have given up on loan signings Arnaut Danjuma and Clément Langlais. In addition to Leguillet, other loan signings such as Tangi Ndombele and Giovanni Rosselso are also being linked with departures, as well as players from last season’s squad such as Hugo Lloris and Ivan Perisic.
