Catalan giants Barcelona are reportedly ready to offer 28-year-old Dutch striker Memphis Depay in a swap deal to sign Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham.
According to reputable Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, reported by Sport Witness, Barcelona will look to engineer a swap deal to sign Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window. The Catalan giants are ready to offer 28-year-old Dutch striker Memphis Depay to sweeten Spurs’ move.
Sergio Reguilon has failed to reach the heights of his spell with Sevilla since joining Tottenham from Real Madrid almost two years ago. The Spaniard had been one of La Liga’s best full-backs during his short spell at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium but blew hot and cold at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 25-year-old has played just 67 times for Spurs over the past two seasons, registering two goals and nine assists. And Antonio Conte has no place for Reguilon in his plans, especially after Tottenham secured the services of Ivan Perisic in a Bosman move. Such a situation caught Barcelona’s attention.
Recent reports have claimed that Barcelona are unlikely to go on the offensive to sign Reguilon from Tottenham in the summer transfer window due to his past association with Real Madrid. The full-back also has his allegiance to Los Blancosthus forcing the Blaugrana to exclude a transfer.

But according to Gerard Romero, Reguilon remains on Barcelona’s radar following a move in the current transfer window. The Catalan giants are in the hunt for a left-back as Jordi Alba is well into his 30s, while Alejandro Balde is yet to make his mark in the Camp Nou first team.
Reguilon is therefore a viable target for Barcelona, who will look to devise a swap deal to secure the 25-year-old’s services. They are ready to offer 28-year-old Dutch striker Memphis Depay to bring Reguilon to Camp Nou, hoping the proposal will sweeten the move for Tottenham.
Depay is on Tottenham’s wishlist this summer. But recent reports suggest the 28-year-old striker doesn’t want to join Barcelona. And for a trade deal to happen, all four parties need to be on the same page. Barcelona and Tottenham are therefore in trouble, with Reguilon in limbo over his future.
