Everton have moved ahead of at least three other Premier League clubs after bidding £18m for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.

The offer is expected to spark a flurry of activity for the 23-year old Real academy product, who was voted the best left-back in La Liga last season.

Reguilon played a pivotal role during a season-long loan at Sevilla, becoming a fan favourite as he helped them finish fourth and secure Champions League qualification.
