Sergio Reguilón’s poor form and fitness has restricted him to only nine appearances in the league for Tottenham Hotspur this calendar year.
The left-back has been on the sidelines with a groin injury since the start of this month and is reportedly unlikely to feature for Spurs again this season.
That, however, has not stopped the 25-year-old from being linked with a move away from Tottenham.
Saturday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo explains the ‘option’ to sign ex-Real Madrid man is ‘on the table’ for Barcelona.
The Catalan club plan to sign a new left-back to provide competition and cover to Jordi Alba next term. Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, Celta Vigo’s Javi Galán, Benfica’s Álex Grimaldo and Valencia’s José Gayà are on their target list.
Mundo adds the La Liga side ‘must not lose sight’ of Antonio Conte’s man. Reguilón is managed by Kia Joorabchian, whose client lists includes Philippe Coutinho, a player that Barca sold to Aston Villa earlier this week.
It’s claimed the agent has good ties with Xavi Hernández’s side, more so after Coutinho’s sale to Aston Villa.
The report states the La Liga side could use one of their own players as a ‘bargaining chip’ to take the Spaniard away from Spurs in the summer.
Mundo doesn’t mention which player Barca could offer the Premier League club or if Spurs are open to carrying out such a deal.
