Report: Spurs thinking about selling 'superb' Mourinho signing, even though he's started 25 PL games this term

Tottenham are considering selling Sergio Reguilon and his defensive colleague Davinson Sanchez in the summer transfer window.

The Evening Standard report that Antonio Conte will listen to offers for four defenders, including the aforementioned pair, as well as Joe Rodon and Emerson Royal.

Reguilon was signed by Jose Mourinho in September 2020, for a fee the BBC reported at the time could rise to £32 million.

Sanchez was the club’s record signing when he joined under Mauricio Pochettino for £42 million in July 2017 but his career has stagnated.

Tottenham are considering selling Sergio Reguilon

Reguilon has not been at the same level as he was under Mourinho but he has still started 22 Premier League games this season, as per Transfermarkt.

Wing backs are a huge part of Conte’s gameplan and it appears he feels he needs improvements on that left hand side.

Lauded as a ‘superb’ player before by Graham Roberts back in December, Reguilon Rehas been linked with a move to Barcelona in the past month.

Real Madrid also have the option to buy Reguilon back this summer – but the clause lapses after that – according to Football.London.

Spurs need defensive improvement and Sanchez has never been able to find the consistency to prove he can be that man on a regular basis.

The report claims that Sanchez is most likely to move abroad and that limits the amount of money Tottenham could get in for him.

That is because the budgets for sides outside the Premier League are smaller, and that is one downside for English clubs as they look to offload their players this summer.
