Sergio Reguilon is flattered by speculation linking him with Chelsea but insists his only focus is on Sevilla’s Europa League campaign, which begins again on Thursday night against Roma.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed an excellent season on loan from Real Madrid in Seville and has attracted the attention of Frank Lampard, who is eager to bring in a new left-back this summer.

Talks between the Blues and Real over a £22.5million deal are reportedly at an ‘advanced stage’, with the Spaniard seen as a cheaper alternative to Ben Chilwell.

But for now Reguilon insists he is ‘100% focused on the Roma game’ and will not make a decision on his future until after Sevilla’s Europa League campaign.

Asked about interest from big clubs like Chelsea, he told Marca: ‘If my year at Sevilla had not been good, then this would not be happening. These teams would not ring.

‘If I am fine, the team is fine and the club is fine, everyone is happy.

‘But I do not think about these possibilities now – I’m sorry if that sounds like a cliche.

‘I’ve been saying since quarantine that until the season isn’t over I won’t be talking about my future.

‘Until then it would be unfair on myself, my teammates and club.

‘I have no complaints about anything, about the city, the club, my colleagues. I feel very loved. Who knows what will happen in the future.’

On the possibility of staying one more year on loan at Sevilla, he added: ‘We should talk about that sitting quietly with Real Madrid, my representative, with everyone. And see the possibilities for next year, let’s see what happens. I don’t know.’

Reguilon has two goals and four assists in 31 La Liga appearances this season, helping the side finish the campaign strongly after the restart to claim fourth place.
