Napoli have joined the race to sign Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon, according to Sky Sports Italia.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a successful season-long loan at Sevilla FC, but despite his impressive temporary spell away from the Bernabeu, Real boss Zinedine Zidane is keen to offload the Spaniard and use the funds to invest in his squad.

There is also believed to be interest in the Spain Under-21 international from Chelsea, with Blues manager Frank Lampard keen to improve his options at left-back after growing increasingly unconvinced by the credentials of current incumbents Marcos Alonso and Emerson — the latter being linked with a move to Serie A.

The asking price for Reguilon is believed to be in excess of £18 million, which represents a cheaper option for Chelsea than Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, who has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for more than £50m.
