We're looking to be in for him with Everton as competition. Gotta be honest I hadn't really heard of him before this rumour surfaced, but apparently he won an award for being the best LB in la liga last season which really says something.

I wouldn't mind going for him at the given price point, but it seems too cheap to be true? 18m for someone who just had an apparent stellar season...

From the Guardian...

Quote

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s heroics at Wembley have convinced Frank Lampard’s Chelsea that they need a defensive clear-out. Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Emerson Palmieri, Marcos Alonso are for the out, as is keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who cost so much he will have to be loaned out. N’Golo Kanté is also being considered for sale as Frank looks to sign Declan Rice from West Ham and Atlético’s José Giménez.

Ben Chilwell is an option for left-back but Chelsea may have to make him the most expensive ever English defender to land him from Leicester. Real Madrid’s 23-year-old Spanish left-back Sergio Reguilón, who is available at a mere £18m, rather less than the £80m Chilwell might cost.

Owned by Real Madrid who have Mendy at LB for the next decade. Reports saying Everton have bid £18m, seems strange when they already have Digne. Does this mean Digne is on the move?

Forgot about Mendy, he seems essentially a nailed on starter at this point.

If Alonso AND Emerson are looking to go, does that mean we're going for 2 new LB's as well? Reguilon and Tagliafico may be a great 2 LB combo

More likely we sign either Reguilon or Tagliafico and Gosens, imo. Gosens would be as close to a like for like replacement for Alonso as we're likely to find.

Reguilon is an interesting alternative. Very attacking left back and also very good at getting beyond the final man and putting in those low crosses. 

Only q I would have about him in England is the height/physicality side defensively. Same question as I have about Tagliafico. 

For me I think Alonso should stay, he is excellent in a three and gives us options. But if the fee is right Reguilon would be a handy signing for the back four.  Glad to see us linked with him and with Digne as well who I think might just be the best of the bunch.

Dont rate Gosens as high as the other 2 in all honesty.

Do you rate Tagliafico/Reguilon higher than Gosens as a wing back? It's perhaps worth bearing in mind that Alonso is 30 in December.

Well Tagliafico is our defensive option, but based on some research ive been doing Reguilon looks good attacking

I think this makes far more sense than Chilwell. He must’ve done something right to be voted the best of 20+ LB’s in the entire Spanish League. I doubt there’d be a player in the entire Premier League best 11 you could get for less than £40m so financially it seems to stack up.

Certainly seems to be one that's flown under the radar, but given his stats, how he was on loan at Sevilla after Real signed Mendy, and while on loan he excelled, it makes it an interesting option.  

I'm not sold on Chilwell at all, and Reguilon seems to have Ben pipped in all stats (for what they are worth).  I truly believe that Chilwell's price is seriously inflated because of him being English; again, nothing we need to worry about given the number of lads we have in our team.

Copy the URL and paste onto the forum. That is what I have always done.

Rather surprising that Chilwell is not better on at least one category.

Well... Pretty obvious that this post only shows the categories that Reguilon is better at. But there are some fairly important stats in there and I like the look of the spaniard, so I'm all for this, especially considering the price.
