Manchester United could solve two problems with the signing of Sergio Reguilon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already signed one player this summer in the form of Donny van de Beek.
But it is not enough for the Norweigan who wants to see more arrivals soon.
Jadon Sancho has been top of his wish list all summer but Borussia Dortmund have made a transfer difficult and other targets could be pursued.
While Solskjaer is also keen on bolstering his defence but has ran into problems over signing Dayot Upamecano, his favoured player to partner Harry Maguire.
But he can still boost his full-backs with the signing of Reguilon, who Real Madrid have offered out.
The Spaniard spent last season on loan to Sevilla and made it into the La Liga team of the year.
Indeed, it was the same team that knocked United out of the Europa League – which they would go on to win after beating Inter Milan.
Reguilon is a classic Spanish left-back – full of pace, loves to attack and exploits space out wide.
He would tick all the boxes for Solskjaer, who is trying to build his offensive tactics on these exact principles.
His current options at left-back do not possess these traits – Luke Shaw does not glide down the wing as Solskjaer would like.
And his crossing ability has been shoddy and at best, average.
This would be solved by Reguilon, who was a secret weapon for Sevilla in a successful year for the club.
Another problem the 23-year-old would solve would be alleviating the pressure on Brandon Williams' shoulders.
The youngster is well thought-of by United coaches but the worry is that there could be too much placed on him in his formative years.
Shaw's fitness has also been problematic and Williams has been asked to step up at times that have been tough for the 20-year-old.

The arrival of Reguilon would help the Englishman rest easier, knowing that he can develop properly and away from the limelight.
Whether United sign Reguilon remains to be seen with Real Madrid insistent that a buyback clause be included.
That would be against Ed Woodward's wishes, who does not want to lose control of negotiations should he enjoy a fruitful spell at Old Trafford.
