Napoli are reportedly in pole position to land Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon, who has impressed while on loan at Sevilla during the 2019-20 campaign.

Napoli have reportedly leapfrogged Chelsea in the race to sign Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.

The 23-year-old has spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Sevilla and is believed to have gained a number of admirers following his performances for Julen Lopetegui's side.

With Chelsea understood to be in the market for a new left-back this summer, the Blues had supposedly identified Reguilon as an ideal cut-price alternative to Leicester City's Ben Chilwell.

However, Calcio Mercato claims that Napoli have now stolen a march on their rivals and are in pole position to secure the Spaniard's signature ahead of the new season.

With Ferland Mendy and Marcelo currently among the ranks at Real Madrid, the report claims that Reguilon would struggle to nail down a regular spot in Zinedine Zidane's starting lineup despite his impressive campaign with Sevilla.

Reguilon played the full 90 minutes as Sevilla advanced to the Europa League final with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday evening.
