Tottenham news: Transfer kitty boost in sights with ‘last-minute’ Sergio Reguilon approach | Football | Sport


Tottenham could land more funds with which to complete the transfer window in style as Lazio reportedly prepare to submit a last-minute offer for the out-of-favour Sergio Reguilon. Antonio Conte already has two solid options at left-back as Spurs eye avenues to money in before the September 1 deadline. 

Reguilon was considered a serious coup for the Lilywhites when he arrived from Real Madrid in 2020. Despite a quick start in north London, he has regularly slipped down the pecking order under Conte and now finds himself behind each Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic. 

With lower than two weeks of the transfer window left to run and little prospect of Reguilon fighting his way back into contention, Spurs are regarded as keen on a sale. Serie A appears to be his more than likely destination and Calciomercato claim that Lazio are plotting a ‘last-minute approach’. 

The Rome-based side kept tabs on Chelsea full-back Emerson Palmieri but negotiations with West Ham and hefty wage demands can have stopped that deal in its tracks.

After edging out Wolves and lengthening his side’s unbeaten run, Conte heaped praise on each teams: “The performance ultimately was good because I even have to contemplate all the pieces,” he said. “To begin with, the importance of the opponent because Wolverhampton within the last week signed necessary players; Guedes, Nunes, if you happen to see the starting XI today you could have to be a bit scared because Wolverhampton with Neves, Nunes, it’s probably the greatest midfielders for this league.

“Also the players in front: Guedes, Podence, Jimenez, I feel it’s a extremely good team. The primary-half we struggled a bit, we talked about playing quality football, fast, but within the second-half I feel we deserved to win, we didn’t give them any probabilities to attain.”
