Arsenal and Tottenham are in the race to sign Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon, according to reports in Spain.

Mikel Arteta is keen to strengthen his options in defence but the Arsenal manager has admitted that the club’s transfer plans hinge on their final position in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho is also understood to be looking to bolster his defensive ranks at Spurs when the transfer window opens.

Reguilon made his senior debut for Real Madrid last season but the 23-year-old is currently on loan at Sevilla and has established himself as their first choice left-back.

According to ABC Sevilla, over 10 clubs have registered have registered their interest in Reguilon in recent weeks.

And the report claims that Arsenal and Tottenham are two of the teams who have asked Madrid about the defender’s availability along with Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.

It’s claimed that Arsenal’s interest in Reguilon could be linked with Bukayo Saka’s situation as the 18-year-old has not yet agreed a new contract with the club and his current deal is due to expire next summer.

Madrid, meanwhile, are yet to make a decision over Reguilon’s future and the Spanish club will take their direction from Zinedine Zidane’s opinion on the player.

Should Zidane not want Reguilon at Madrid next season, the club will make the defender available on loan with a purchase option.

Speaking about his future earlier this month, Reguilon told ABC: ‘I know what Monchi [Sevilla’s sporting director] thinks. I also love my teammates, the fans and the city of Sevilla.

‘However, when the season is over I will have to go back to Madrid and then I don’t know what will happen after that.’
