On Friday, TuttoMercatoWeb stated Atlético Madrid have made a move to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Sergio Reguilón.

TMW’s claim is relayed and backed up by AS on Saturday, who state the La Liga side have contacted Spurs to take the left-back.

Nottingham Forest are interested in Renan Lodi and his departure will open up space for the Tottenham player at the Metropolitano.

The report states ‘there is a serious question and talks to repatriate’ Antonio Conte’s man on loan with the possible inclusion of a purchase option. He has received several offers, including one from Lazio.

Villarreal are also in the race, while Los Rojiblancos have ‘immersed’ themselves to secure the former Real Madrid man’s services. He is out of Conte’s plans at Tottenham and could return to Spain so that Lodi can join Forest.

Meanwhile, Marca explain Diego Simeone’s side have decided to let go of Lodi because the market has put ‘replacement of guarantees within reach’. That is Reguilón, who can take Lodi’s place at the Madrid club. 

Atlético sporting director Andrea Berta is aware the 25-year-old has no place at Spurs and sees him as a ‘good opportunity’ to replace Lodi.

Therefore, the chief has ‘not hesitated to ask’ Tottenham to take Reguilón on loan, while working with Nottingham Forest over a deal for the Brazilian.

Marca’s report doesn’t talk about any possibility of the option or obligation to convert the temporary deal into a permanent transfer.
