On July 20, Journalist Fabrizio Romano reported Tottenham’s hope in getting a potential deal done. Initially, the figure reported was £25m plus add-ons.
However, Romano followed up with the report. He claimed that an agreement has been reached and winger Bryan Gil will join Spurs. As mentioned above, the North London club negotiated a player-plus-cash deal for the Spaniard. Sevilla will receive £25m plus add-ons and Eric Lamela as well.
Bryan Gil contract
As per Fabrizio Romano, Gil is expected to sign for Spurs until June 2026. The tweet claimed that the deal will be announced in the next few days. However, going via Express, the deal will only be made official until after the 20-year-old returns from the Olympics.
Until then, Spurs will focus on other areas to strengthen, according to ABC Sevilla (h/t Express).
Eric Lamela’s departure
Tottenham signed Eric Lamela in the summer of 2013. The Argentinian was coming after two years at AS Roma. The player never really managed to put his mark on the English game. Since signing, he has made 177 league appearances with an underwhelming output of 17 goals and 26 assists.
The Argentine winger now looks set to join Sevilla. The player is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Spanish side, according to Sky Sports.
