Tottenham expected to sign £27.7m player 'soon'

Sergio Reguilon Europa League final

Tottenham are on the verge of securing their fourth summer signing if you believe reports. 

Spurs may have struggled to compete with the big-money spenders in the market, but fear not, they have still made some fairly solid additions.

After Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's arrival, they added Joe Hart and then Matt Doherty to their ranks. 

Daniel Levy has had to be shrewd but it does look as though they could spend big on at least one player this summer.

That's because Gareth Bale continues to be linked while there have also been shouts of Arkadiusz Milik and Marcelo Brozovic joining.

All of those transfers would be well over £20m - in fact, Milik was recently touted at a price of £32m so there must be some cash reserves left in the tank for Tottenham to spend. 

However, their big-money addition might not be on any of those players.

In the past week, various teams have stepped up their pursuit to sign Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.

The player starred on loan at Sevilla last season and it was thought that Manchester United were prepared to pay €30m (£27.7m) for his services. 

Spurs had also been in the running and it appears as though they're now the favourites.

Forbes reported on Friday that United's interest was merely a smokescreen to drum up more interest in the player.

Crucially, though, they reported the following line: 

"The expectation is he will instead soon join Tottenham Hotspur." 

Interesting words indeed.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

With Danny Rose in talks to sign for Genoa on loan, this transfer has come at the ideal time.

It's no surprise, either, that their interest has supposedly become greater as Rose gets closer to the exit door.

The England full-back spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle and is clearly out of favour with Jose Mourinho.

Spurs have problems on that left-hand side too. Jan Vertonghen has left, Ryan Sessegnon isn't preferred and Ben Davies still needs to get up to speed after missing 19 matches last term. 

Reguilon, then, would be the perfect player to try and improve Mourinho's backline.

He has "grown at a barbaric rate" according to Sevilla boss Julian Lopetegui and is arguably in the form of his life.

For the Europa League winners, he played 38 games last season, scoring three goals and creating five strikes in the process.

He may be expendable at Real Madrid, but this is a player capable of improving Spurs greatly. After all, he was successful with more tackles than Rose last season. 

That bodes well, but so does his attacking record. With Doherty already through the door, Tottenham would have two first-class full-backs.
