Report: Fabio Paratici has offered '£42m' Tottenham player to Inter Milan
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking to offload Sergio Reguilon this summer.
The full-back arrived at Spurs in 2020, and he was tipped for big things in north London.
However, Reguilon has struggled at times, and Antonio Conte doesn’t seem overly keen on him.
Last season, the 25-year-old fell out of contention under the Italian.
Conte often preferred Ryan Sessegnon at left wing-back.
Spurs have since brought in Ivan Perisic, seemingly pushing Reguilon further down the pecking order.
Worse still for the Spaniard, Conte opted not to bring him on Tottenham’s tour of South Korea.
It was the clearest indication yet from the manager that he doesn’t have Reguilon in his plans next term.
Now, Calciomercato has claimed that Tottenham director Fabio Paratici has offered him to Inter Milan.
The Italian outlet – via Sport Witness – today features a piece claiming the Nerazzurri may lose Denzel Dumfries.
The Dutchman is reportedly on the radar of Chelsea and Manchester United this summer.
Then they point out that Reguilon could be a potential alternative for Dumfries.
He’s said to be a ‘new name’ for Inter, who are ‘among the teams to which Paratici has offered’ the player.
However, Reguilon’s potential switch to Inter would still depend on whether Dumfries leaves.
Still, these are apparently ‘hot hours’ for the Nerazzurri, who are in a crucial part of their transfer window.
Reguilon is a ‘brilliant’ player, very quick, good on the ball and is a decent crosser as well.
His defending isn’t quite on the same level as his skills going forward, but he’s a good left-back for sure.
However, Conte just doesn’t want him in the squad anymore.
So a move away this summer is the best thing for the player and the club.
Reguilon can get first-team football elsewhere, while Spurs would get him off their wage bill.
Also, as Alasdair Gold recently said on his latest football.london Q&A, Tottenham need to start repaying Real Madrid this summer for Reguilon.
Selling the former Bernabeu speedster would offset this, as it’s “highly unlikely” Los Blancos will buy him back at an agreed price of around £42m.
