Reguilon’s Decent Run Of Form In Premier League Football
Reguilon is having an impressive campaign in English football after producing a handful of solid displays on the left side of Tottenham’s midfield. The Spanish talent has registered two goals and three assists in 29 matches for Spurs this season in all competitions.
The 25-year-old has given a good account of himself by averaging 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 1.7 clearances, 0.9 shots, 1.3 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even taken care of possession after making 79.6% of his attempted passes in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Should Tottenham Hotspur Let Reguilon Leave?
Reguilon has proven his worth as a decent defender inside his half. He can get stuck in with some solid tackles and is usually quick to spot the danger on the defensive end of the field. The six-time Spain international can create some decent chances for others around him and is also a good dribbler down the left flank. He can even deliver a few inviting crosses into the opposition penalty box.
Spurs simply cannot afford to lose a player of Reguilon’s quality in the summer. He has proven himself as one of the most important members of Antonio Conte‘s first XI. Plus, the talented full-back has settled into the Italian tactician’s playing style quite well at the English capital.
At 25, Reguilon will only get better with each season, so the North London giants should think about retaining his services for the long run. The Spaniard’s current contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is set to expire in the summer of 2025. Thus, there is no immediate need for Spurs to cash in on him in the off-season. With all things considered, Conte would be wise to not let Reguilon leave when the transfer window reopens later this year.
