Tottenham backed to make ‘one of the signings of the summer’ – and it’s not Gareth Bale

Tottenham are set to make “one of the signings of the summer” from Real Madrid, according to Julien Laurens. But Laurens is not speaking about Gareth Bale and in fact is hugely impressed by the impending arrival of left-back Sergio Reguilon at Spurs. Spain international Reguilon will fly to England today to complete a move to Tottenham alongside club team-mate Bale.

Tottenham have agreed to pay £27million for Reguilon, who was also linked to Manchester United and Sevilla.

However, United were not keen on the buyback clause Real insisted on putting in any deal.

Laurens is a huge fan of the 23-year-old, who spent last season on loan in Seville.

And he reckons it is one of the best pieces of business completed by any club throughout the window.

“Just quickly to come back on Reguilon, for me that’s one of the signings of the summer, there’s no doubt,” Laurens told ESPN FC.

“It’s a great coup, I think they need to be praised and they need to be applauded for signing Reguilon ahead of Manchester United, ahead of a lot of other clubs, and for €30m I think it’s an absolute bargain.

“Well done to Spurs because I think he’s going to be a fantastic left-back for them, there’s just no doubt.”

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s transfer business may not end at Bale and Reguilon.

Jose Mourinho wants to sign a striker and Express Sport understands Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst is under consideration.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims there is a long list of forwards Mourinho is looking at.

Sheth said: “People are asking, with Gareth Bale arriving, does that mean Tottenham won’t be signing another striker? Look, it’s not been ruled out at all.

“Of course the arrivals of Bale and Reguilon would eat into the money for potential signings, that can’t be questioned.

“But Tottenham’s search for a striker, this is not a new thing.

“We’ve been talking about this for the last two, three, four, five, six transfer windows, ‘will they bring in another striker to either play alongside Harry Kane? To be a backup to Harry Kane?’.

“One player they were looking at was Alexander Sorloth, that one looks like it’s not going to happen now because he looks like he’s on his way to RB Leipzig from Trabzonspor.

“I was told earlier this week that there is a long list of strikers that Tottenham have as they look to bring in somebody before the window closes.”
