Lucas Moura claims 24-year-old might just be the quickest player at Tottenham


Lucas was named to ask his quickest teammate in an interview which was conducted yesterday.

And Reguilon was listed as a potential candidate to be the most rapid player at Spurs, alongside Steven Bergwijn and Heung-Min Son.

“Very good question,” the Brazilian said, when asked who his quickest teammate is.

“I cannot say me! I would say Steven Bergwijn, Sonny, Reguilon is very fast as well. But it’s impossible to say, we need to have a race!”

Reguilon’s pace could be a vital asset for Tottenham under Antonio Conte.

The 24-year-old Spaniard looks to be Conte’s first choice left-wing back in his new system.

Reguilon spoke yesterday about only having limited experience of playing in a back five to date, but it is theoretically a role which should suit his skills.

Reguilon is always a threat going forward, and he is keen to join attacks.

Even when stationed as a full-back, Reguilon has been a menace in an offensive sense, so he should be a big asset in a forward sense under Conte’s structure.

Tottenham will need the £32 million man (Sky Sports) to learn the role fairly quickly too.

Spurs have struggled to show their best when going forward this season and have now gone two full games without even mustering up a shot on target in the Premier League.

Tottenham have only scored nine goals in 11 games this term, and Conte needs to find a route to goal quickly in North London if he is to close the gap on the top four.
