Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Bryan Gil from Sevilla, in a swap-plus-cash deal with Erik Lamela going the other way, and former Spurs player Paul Stewart believes its “good business.”
Gil, who’s 20 years old, has signed a five-year deal with Spurs, with Lamela going to Spain on a three-year deal.
The winger spent last season on loan with SD Eibar, where he scored four goals and created another four in all competitions. Gil also offers versatility, as he can play on either wing and has also occupied the number ten role previously.
Former Spurs player Paul Stewart spoke to Transfer Tavern about the deal and said: “They’ve still got to be looking at the defence as a priority, but with Erik wanting to leave and Nuno wanting him to leave and getting this other player that he wants, then you could say it’s good business.”
Whilst adding an exciting youngster to the team in Gil, Spurs are also linked with defenders this summer. Fabrizio Romano tweeted earlier this month that Spurs are working on a swoop for Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna, while the The Telegraph reported that the club are increasing their efforts to land Atalanta centre-back Cristian Romero.
Gil’s deal to Spurs takes their summer window to two incomings, as goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini also joined them over the weekend on a loan deal.
