With Tottenham Hotspur interested in signing Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson, the Reds should negotiate a deal which sees a player join the club, with cash on top.

Ange Postecoglou’s side have multiple fringe players who are all available for transfer this summer, several of whom may be of interest to Forest.

One of which is wing-back Sergio Reguilon.

The ‘exceptional‘ wing-back joined Spurs for a fee of £32 million less than three years ago but has found himself on the fringes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

26-year-old Reguilon spent last season on loan in La Liga at Atletico Madrid, where he made just 12 appearances in all competitions throughout the campaign.

Nottingham Forest should eye player plus cash deal

Whilst having a disappointing spell back in Spain last season, Reguilon had a successful stint in the Premier League during the 2021/22 season.

The Spaniard is predominantly an attacking-minded wing-back who has a great left foot on him, useful for whipped crosses into the 18-yard box.

Reguilon registered two goals and three assists in his 22 starts from left wing-back for Spurs during 21/22, as he helped Spurs achieve Champions League football.

His attacking stats for a wing-back are elite-level, averaging 3 ball carries into the final third per game, whilst receiving 6.8 passes in attacking areas.

Former Real Madrid man Reguilon also averaged 4 crosses per 90, creating 2.7 key chances for his teammates per game, a staggering amount.

Defensively, the 26-year-old is solid. His tenacious nature sees him winning the ball high up the pitch, before causing danger with his stellar crossing ability.

Although he hasn’t had a great 18-month spell, Reguilon still possesses a lot of qualities that would dramatically improve the Reds’ wing-back department.

A move to Nottingham Forest could certainly be the catalyst for the Spaniard to reignite his Premier League career.
