Sharing some big news on live TV (via Football Daily), Sky Sports have dropped a transfer development involving Tottenham Hotspur and exciting Sevilla youngster Bryan Gil.
The Lowdown: Paratici on the move…
It has been quite an eventful last few days for Tottenham in the transfer market as new managing director of football Fabio Paratici is starting to show exactly why he was appointed by Daniel Levy.
The Italian transfer guru is working on deals to sign both Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero according to reliable Spurs reporter Alasdair Gold, and it appears he hasn’t stopped there.
As per Sky, sharing the latest on live TV, Tottenham and Paratici have another major transfer in the works.
The Latest: Sky Sports drop big live TV development…
The broadcaster has now dropped news that Tottenham are close to finalising a swap deal for Los Nervionenses starlet Gil this summer, which will see winger Erik Lamela head the other way.
Sevilla, as well as receiving the Argentine, also stand to gain £21.6 million from the transfer as Tottenham look to add Gil to Nuno Espirito Santo’s ranks.
“Just some breaking news regarding Tottenham,” Sky explained.
“They are close to finalizing a swap deal with Sevilla that will see them sign the young winger Bryan Gil and Erik Lamela move to Spain.
“Our colleagues at Sky Italy are reporting that Spurs will also pay £21.6m for the 20-year-old.
“Gil is a promising Spain international, he’s had three caps, and Lamela is set to join Sevilla on a three-year contract – bringing an end to his eight-year stay at Spurs.”
The Verdict: Exciting move…
The dazzling attacker has drawn comparisons with Brazilian superstar Neymar (football.london), so it’s safe to say this is quite an exciting development coming out of Spurs.
Gil spent last season shining on loan at La Liga side Eibar, where he started 26 matches whilst scoring four goals and assisting three others (WhoScored).
He also stood out as Eibar’s most creative attacking outlet, making the most key passes per 90 (1.8) whilst averaging more completed dribbles (2.4) than anyone in their squad (WhoScored).
Indeed, it looks like Paratici is about to sign quite the gem for Tottenham.
