Sergio Reguilon has become hot property over this summer for Real Madrid, and Tottenham have beaten a host of clubs to acquire his services.
Sportsmail revealed this week that the left-back is due to undergo a medical on Thursday ahead of signing a five-year deal with Tottenham, who have agreed a £27million fee with Real. Reguilon thoroughly impressed last season on loan at Sevilla, helping lead them to the Europa League title and a fourth-placed finish in LaLiga.
Would Reguilon be a good fit for Tottenham with his attacking style of play, or would he add more frustration to their backline? Sportsmail goes through his career so far...

A humble professional from Madrid's academy
Sergio Reguilon is a product of the Real Madrid academy having joined the Los Blancos youth set-up at eight years old. However, he has failed to make an impact on the Madrid senior side so far in his career, sitting behind Marcelo and Ferland Mendy in the current pecking order.
The Madrid-born defender has had several loans out to other Spanish sides, including UD Logrones, and more recently, Sevilla.
The 23-year-old has also been a relatively late bloomer in terms of his international career, having made just one appearance for the Spain U21 side, before being promoted to the senior side for his first cap this month against Ukraine in the Nations League.

His first Spain appearance was an impressive one until he had to come off following a collision with Viktor Kovalenko that saw him limp off.
The Spaniard looks to be the ultimate professional after he picked himself up quickly from the disappointment of Mendy's arrival at the Bernabeu that triggered his loan move to Sevilla from his boyhood club.
'I have a very clear conscience because I gave everything for Real Madrid,' Reguilon told AS. 'Others made that decision [to send me on loan] and I can't do anything but do my job to the very best. It's what I did in Madrid and I try to do it now at Sevilla.
'I left Madrid on good terms, I wasn't mad at anyone,' Reguilon said. 'Everything was a mutual agreement. I am an academy player and I owe everything to Madrid. It's impossible for me to leave in a bad way.'

The Spanish Andy Robertson
Reguilon optimises the modern day full-back. He adds just as much to the attack as he does defence, and was one of Sevilla's most important attacking threats last season.
