In a recent report, Sky in Italy mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur are close to finalizing a move for Sevilla winger Bryan Gil this summer. It is believed that Spurs are ready to pay £21.6m for the Spanish youngster which would also see Erik Lamela move in the other direction as part of the deal (via Sky in Italy).
Gil’s Encouraging Season In Spanish Football
Gil had an impressive season at Sevilla as he caught the eye by producing a handful of influential displays on the left side of Julen Lopetegui’s attack. The 20-year-old registered four goals, four assists and six yellow cards in 30 matches for the Spanish outfit in the previous campaign across all competitions.
The Cadiz-born sensation deserves a lot of credit for finding some consistency with his contributions in attack after he averaged 1.4 shots, 1.8 key passes, 1.5 crosses and 2.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga last season. He even distributed possession with some conviction based on his pass success rate of 78% in the top-flight of Spanish football (stats via whoscored).
Gil’s current deal at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium is set to expire in the summer of 2023, so it makes sense for Spurs to pay £21.6m and give up Lamela to bring the Spaniard to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of the new campaign.
Will Signing Gil Be A Wise Move For Spurs?
Gil is a moderately-paced winger who can make a few promising runs with the ball out on the wide areas. He can get himself into some dangerous areas in the final third and is proficient at whipping in a few dangerous crosses into the opposition penalty box.
The Spanish whizkid has got the vision to cut open the opposition defence with a killer pass in the attacking end of the pick. Plus, he can even contribute by scoring some valuable goals for his team up top.
Gil still has a lot to learn at the highest level but there is no doubt that he is a star in the making. Hence, Nuno Espirito Santo should think about doing everything in his power to sign the promising wing wizard during the summer transfer window.
Gil will be a perfect signing for Spurs in the long run as he has what it takes to be a success story at the North London club. We can expect him to add some goals and creativity to Tottenham’s frontline, so Nuno Espirito Santo would be wise to bring him to the Premier League in this off-season. At 20, he has the ceiling to be a future star in English football which makes him a worthy target for Spurs to pursue this summer.
