According to Spanish media outlet AS via Metro, Chelsea are ahead of Arsenal in the fight to sign Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has made the signing of a left-back a priority, with Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell a key transfer target. With Leicester City demanding £80 million for the England international, the Blues are looking for other options.

Reguilon enjoyed a superb season on loan at Sevilla and was named the best left-back in La Liga last season.

Real Madrid are prepared to cash in on Reguilon as they have a wealth of options at left-back and are willing to sell left-back for £23 million.
