Tottenham are facing a potential blow to their ranks following news that Sergio Reguilon may have picked up an injury while playing for Spain against Portugal last night.
The Spurs star, who has started well for both Spain and Jose Mourinho’s outfit, only arrived in north London a few weeks ago, completing a £25m move from Real Madrid.
However, the former Sevilla man was removed from the action at half-time last night, replaced by Jose Gaya for the second half and Spain boss, Jose Enrique, has admitted that Reguilon is being assessed by doctors.
The news will be a bitter blow for Spain but will also be a nightmare for Spurs if it is serious. With Danny Rose out of the picture and Ryan Sessegnon out on loan, Mourinho would be left with Ben Davies as his sole experienced choice at left-back.
Reguilon has impressed since coming to Spurs and looks to have already made the left-back slot his own. Any injury to him this early on will represent a huge setback for both the player and Tottenham.

Managers know this will happen when they have squads of top international players so it’s not the biggest surprise in the world to see someone go down with a knock.
However, Mourinho will be hoping it’s nothing to worry about. The Spurs boss is keen to build his squad and get a proper go at things at full-strength, so the last thing he needs is missing players.
With a bit of luck, Reguilon will be ok and be back fighting fit in no time for Spurs.
