As per Italian journalist Raimondo De Magistris, Atletico Madrid have formally submitted a request to sign Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon on loan for the rest of the season.

Reguilon, a former Real Madrid player, left Los Blancos in the summer of 2020 to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. While he was a regular in the side for the first eighteen months of his stint in England, his game-time took a hit after the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager last year.

The Spaniard is completely out of favour at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium currently, with Conte exiling him from first-team training and preferring to use Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic as the left-sided wing-backs.

Reguilon has been made available for sale and there have been multiple clubs interested in his signing. Lazio in Serie A are keen while there is also interest from newly-promoted Premier League club Nottingham Forest.

And now, as per the report, Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in signing Reguilon and have submitted a formal request to bring him to the Civitas Metropolitano on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

Despite his past association with Real Madrid, Reguilon would welcome a transfer to Atleti, potentially due to the prospect of playing in the Champions League.

Atletico Madrid have Reinildo Mandava as their primary left-back at the moment. And with the second choice in the position, Renan Lodi, being linked with an exit, there would be room for Reguilon in Diego Simeone’s squad.

So, it will be interesting to see if the ex-Real Madrid star ends up making his way to the Metropolitano or decides to join some other club, as an exit from Tottenham Hotspur looms large for the left-back.

Atletico Madrid, Chelsea contact PSG midfielder’s agent with player set to leave

Atletico Madrid and Chelsea are among the clubs that have made contact with the agent of PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes, who is set to leave this summer.

This claim comes from journalist Martin Arevalo on ESPN, who states that apart from Atletico and Chelsea, an unnamed third club have also established contact with the Argentine international’s representative.

Paredes has been on PSG’s books since January 2019, when he arrived from Zenit St. Petersburg. For a large part of his time at the French capital outfit, the midfielder had been a regular starter in the side.

However, last summer saw Paredes get shipped out on loan to Juventus. He has played 33 times for the Bianconeri this season with a return of one goal and assist apiece.

The Serie A heavyweights, who were recently hit with a 10-point deduction, have the option to purchase him permanently. But, as per the report, his relationship with manager Massimiliano Allegri is not good and a return to PSG is on the cards.

And considering that he is not in the plans back at Parc des Princes either, a permanent departure away seems set in stone for Paredes.

As such, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, and an unnamed club have shown interest in acquiring his services by making contact with the 28-year-old World Cup winner’s agent.

With Koke entering the final phase of his career and Geoffrey Kondogbia expected to leave at the end of the season, the Rojiblancos could do with reinforcements in the centre of the park.

Paredes, who has plenty of experience at the highest level and is known for his aggressive mentality, can be a good fit into Diego Simeone’s setup at the Civitas Metropolitano.

But, with Chelsea also in the picture, things could get tricky for the Colchoneros. After all, Atleti are operating on tight finances and are looking for bargain and free transfer signings in the market with the likes of Marcus Thuram, Jordi Alba, and Raphael Guerreiro emerging as targets.
