EPL: Chelsea beating Arsenal for Real Madrid defender


Arsenal might have beaten their London rivals, Chelsea to clinch the FA Cup title but they seem to be having their own taste of defeat in the race for Real Madrid defender, Sergio Reguilon.

Sergio Reguilon is obviously available in the summer transfer window with the two London clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea hoping to land him.

He spent last season on loan with La Liga outfit, Sevilla, who are also keen to keep him on a permanent basis but the reported interest from the English Premier League clubs is very strong and difficult to turn down.

According to a Spanish media outfit, AS, the Blues team have an edge over the Gunners because of their qualification to the Champions League which is a factor Sergio Reguilon is considering.

However, it might be Arsenal’s chance with the involvement of the player’s agent Kia Joorabchian as he wants his client to play at the Emirates Stadium next season.

Sergio Reguilon is reportedly available for £22.5 million which is a fair deal for the Gunners with Mikel Arteta keen to have a stronger defence next season.

Arsenal have benefitted from their relationship with super-agent Kia Joorabchian and that is expected to continue throughout the summer transfer window.
