Joining Atletico Madrid on loan from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, Sergio Reguilon was expected to make an instant impact upon his return to Spanish football.

However, the former Real Madrid academy product’s progress has been stunted, due to a groin injury that has kept him out of action so far this term.

As Atleti aim to build on their 2-1 away victory against Real Betis in the Champions League as well, the defender could be in line for some game time.

According to the latest information provided by journalist David G. Medina of MARCA, Sergio Reguilon could be a part of Atletico Madrid’s traveling squad for their contest against Bayer Leverkusen.

It has also been mentioned that Tuesday’s session will determine whether the 25-year-old is ready to finally be involved in and amongst Diego Simeone’s troops.

Reinildo has largely operated at left-back and it’s safe to say that he has emerged as an able option for Simeone’s side.

But Reguilon has been training with the rest of the team for a week and seems to have regained full fitness. The Spaniard will now be hoping to get some minutes against Leverkusen, as he awaits his first appearance for Atletico Madrid..

After a fine start to life at Spurs under Jose Mourinho, Reguilon’s stock plummeted under the likes of Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte, with the likes of Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon favoured instead of him.

As a result, it remains key for the Spanish international to make his mark at the Civitas Metropolitano, as he has experienced a fall from grace over the past twelve months.

The first step to do that will be against Bayer Leverkusen, by merely travelling with the squad and being involved in proceedings. Only time will tell whether Reguilon is deemed fit for the clash on Wednesday night.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid are among the clubs monitoring the progress of UD Almeria striker Marciano Sanca.

The 19-year-old Guinea-Bissau forward joined Almeria from Portuguese outfit Leixoes in January last year, linking up with the club’s B team.

Marciano has made three league appearances Almeria’s reserve team and has not scored a goal yet. The teenager has been training with the first-team setup regularly and Romano claims that he is close to making his debut in La Liga.

While he might not have made a splash at the senior level yet, Marciano seems to be already gathering admirers with Atletico Madrid, Villarreal and Brighton & Hove Albion said to be tracking the youngster.

Los Rojiblancos are set to enter the market for a new centre-forward as Joao Felix is expected to be sold permanently while Alvaro Morata’s future is also not entirely certain.

So even though Diego Simeone has Memphis Depay, Angel Correa, and Morata at his disposal, Atletico Madrid will dive into the market for a new striker with there being links to Mateo Retegui of Boca Juniors, currently on loan at Tigre.

Now, Marciano has also emerged as a potential target or Atletico Madrid, although signing him will not be easy in the summer.

Even though the 19-year-old’s contract expires in 2024, he is bound by a release clause worth €40 million and Almeria intend to keep him at the club beyond this season.

So, the La Liga club might hold out for the entire release clause amount in order to stave off potential suitors like Atletico Madrid, who are not in a position to make such an investment on an unproven youngster.
