Chelsea are hoping to secure the signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid. The highly-rated 23-year-old is seeing a permanent move to the Premier League mooted, but he claims to be only focused on the present.
The Liga outfit are yet to bring their 2019-20 campaign to a close, as they continue to chase down Europa glory. It has been suggested that his parent club at Santiago Bernabeu would be open to discussing a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, with there no shortage of suitors to be found.
Frank Lampard looks to bring another left-back onto his books at Stamford Bridge and sees Reguilon as a cheaper alternative for the Blues than Leicester star Ben Chilwell but the 23-year-old is reading little into the exit rumours at this stage.
The left-back has spent the past season on loan at Sevilla, where he had been very outstanding with two goals and four assists in 31 La Liga appearances this season helping the Spanish side finish fourth in the League.
Asked about interest from big clubs like Chelsea, he told Marca; “If my year at Sevilla had not been good, then this would not be happening. These teams would not ring”
“If I am fine, the team is fine and the club is fine, everyone is happy. But I do not think about these possibilities now – I’m sorry if that sounds like a cliché.
“I’ve been saying since quarantine that until the season isn’t over I won’t be talking about my future.
“Until then it would be unfair on myself, my team-mates and the club.
“I have no complaints about anything, about the city, the club, my colleagues. I feel very loved. Who knows what will happen in the future.” The source claims Chelsea are struggling to agree with Leicester City on a fee for Ben Chilwell.
It may appear they have moved on to Reguilon as the next option, or the links could be a way to drive down the price for Chilwell.
