One of the first port of calls Luciano Spalletti has been trying to address at Napoli since he took over from Gennaro Gattuso is the left-back position.

The manager has highlighted the role as a problematic one, and names have been circulating, with the latest being Tottenham’s Sergio Reguilon.

The Spaniard was bought by José Mourinho last summer from Real Madrid, as the Portuguese wanted to reinforce his own defence.

He played regularly under his former manager, and continued to do so when Ryan Mason took over, featuring 36 times in all competitions, picking up six assists along the way.

That would suggest Tottenham aren’t really interested in selling a year after his arrival, and yet Reguilon is someone Spalletti wouldn’t mind working with, according to SportItalia pundit Rudy Galetti.

Taking to Twitter, he announced that Reguilon ‘is in the shortlist’ at Napoli for the left-back role, and has been on the club’s radar ‘for some time’.

However, the big issue would be the price it would take to get him, with Galetti claiming Tottenham would want €25-30m.

Considering they paid £27m for Reguilon in the first place, a fee of that amount would see them get most of their money back.

First, though, Tottenham should probably get a manager in, as he might want to keep the Spaniard around.
