Destiny Udogie has provided an incredible option for left-back in Ange's revitalized Tottenham. Other full-backs like Sergio Reguilon, however, have fallen a bit out of favor as interest from other clubs continues to grow.

As Il Romanista report, Reguilon has gained the interest of Serie A side AS Roma, led by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho. Giulio Curto states that a move for the Spaniard would make sense as "Roma could use the opportunity to replace Spinazzola whose contract expires at the end of the season."

The former Real Madrid player has struggled to find minutes in North London during recent years, spending the entirety of the 22/23 campaign in La Liga with Atletico Madrid, and the first half of this season with Manchester United. With both teams, however, Reguilon has continued to find playing time a hard commodity to come by, netting just 12 appearances for Atletico and 10 so far for United.

Over the years his market value has depreciated to roughly £8.6m, according to Transfermarkt, meaning he would come at a reasonable price for a mid-season move for a player that might be able to find his stride under the right manager.

Reguilon found the majority of his starting XI tenure under Mourinho during his time at Tottenham, playing in 29 matches for the Portuguese manager. A move to Serie A would make a lot of sense for the 27-year-old who will be looking to get better minutes at this point in his career.

According to Sky Sports (via The Spurs Web), Borussia Dortmund have also expressed interest in signing the player. The transfer window is fast approaching, and while Reguilon is set to stay in Manchester for the duration of the year, a break clause in his contract may see him return to North London sooner, a move which would make a potential transfer all the more likely.

For Tottenham, the club do not seem interested in signing another left-back any time soon, with Destiny Udogie's contract recently extended to last until 2030, and Ryan Sessegnon scheduled to return from injury soon.
