Report: Brighton failed with bid to sign Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham
Brighton and Hove Albion have failed with a bid to sign Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham as they prepare to lose Marc Cucurella, according to a report from the Guardian.
Cucurella is closing in on a move to Chelsea. The Guardian reports that the Spaniard is on the verge of sealing a £52.5 million switch to Stamford Bridge.
Brighton have reportedly informed Chelsea that a deal is dependent on the Seagulls finding a replacement for the 24-year-old. And that prompted Graham Potter’s men to turn to Tottenham.
According to the Guardian, Brighton have failed in a move to sign Reguilon. It is not clear exactly why Cucurella’s countryman is not heading to the south coast.
Brighton failed with Sergio Reguilon bid
Reguilon looks set to leave Tottenham before the end of the transfer window. He was not involved in the club’s pre-season tour to South Korea.
And with Antonio Conte bringing in Ivan Perisic, it appears that the Croatian is set to rival Ryan Sessegnon for the left wing-back spot during the coming season.
Reports have suggested that Reguilon has previously told friends that he is close to moving to Sevilla. But it seems that that move has now fallen through.
Julen Lopetegui’s men are looking set to land Alex Telles from Manchester United. And with that, they may have little need to still pursue Reguilon – particularly with Spurs demanding £25 million.
It will do Reguilon no favours to stay at Tottenham beyond the closure of the transfer window. If he does, perhaps he will sense that he could yet force his way back into the fold.
But the signs appear to be ominous for Reguilon. And another avenue seems to have now closed with Brighton failing to sign the 25-year-old.
