In a recent report, Mundo Deportivo (translated by ESPN) revealed that Arsenal are set to rival Barcelona for Sevilla winger Bryan Gil, who is currently playing on loan at SD Eibar. It is believed that the Spanish winger has a £35m release clause, but Sevilla could decide to remove it by tying him down to a new deal which could end any chance the Gunners might have of signing him (via Mundo Deportivo).
Gil’s Outstanding Loan Spell At The Ipurua Municipal Stadium
The Cadiz-born talent is enjoying a fruitful loan spell with Eibar and has been responsible for producing some eye-catching displays on the left side of José Luis Mendilibar’s attack. Gil has found the back of the net on three occasions and grabbed three assists in 16 matches for his loan employers this term across all competitions.
The 20-year-old has caught the eye by influencing the game at both ends of the pitch as he is averaging 1.1 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.5 shots, 2.2 key passes and 2.5 dribbles per game in La Liga this season. However, he needs to take care of the ball a bit better when distributing it to his teammates as evidenced by his pass success rate of 75.1% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
What Are The Spanish Youngster’s Best Attributes?
Gil has decent pace in his locker and can complete some dangerous dribbles down the left flank. He has shown great maturity to help out his teammates at the back and has got the vision to play a decisive through ball in the attacking third. Gil is primarily a left-sided winger but can also fill in as a wide player on the right flank or operate in the number ten position if required.
The Spanish whizkid is proficient at generating some space for himself to get a few shots in at goal. However, he is still quite raw and would need time to develop into a top talent in European football. The way things are going for him, it is no wonder that the player is getting so much interest from other top clubs like Arsenal.
Is Gil A Prospect For The Future?
Gil is a player on the rise and could become a future star in English football if Mikel Arteta can find a way to land him. All in all, the Spanish sensation will add a lot of long-term value to the Gunners squad, which is why Arteta should consider launching a move for him to bring him to the English capital.
