Chelsea have joined Everton in the race to sign Sergio Reguilon as the Blues continue their search for an able left-back option.

Chelsea could make a concrete move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon with a defensive shake-up expected to happen at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Frank Lampard is still in search of a new left-back and is ready to splash the cash to sort that issue.

Leicester’s Ben Chilwell is reported to be top of Chelsea’s wishlist in that position but a recent quotation from the Foxes might force the Blues to look elsewhere.

Sergio Reguilon impressed on loan with Sevilla this season and many even considered him the best in that position in La Liga this term.

Regardless, Real Madrid are reportedly looking to cash in on him with a €20m fee expected to tempt Los Blancos to sell.

Last week, it was reported that Everton bid just the amount above for Reguilon with Carlo Ancelotti eyeing the 23-year-old as able competition for Lucas Digne.

Sky Sports now report that Chelsea have joined the race for the Spanish defender and will look to offer Real Madrid more to ward off interest for Everton.

Sevilla are also keen on securing Reguilon on loan for another season but could face an impossible task with reported interest from Premier League clubs.
