Romano: Tottenham loanee on French side’s shortlist but transfer “not easy”

Fabrizio Romano: Tottenham Hotspur star Bryan Gil on Olympique Marseille transfer shortlist

According to famed journalist Gianluca di Marzio (h/t Fabrizio Romano on Twitter), Tottenham Hotspur star Bryan Gil has become a potential option on the transfer shortlist of Olympique Marseille for this summer. He had spent the second half of the last season on loan at Valencia, where he had a mixed time overall.

Gil could be in line to leave Tottenham once again if Antonio Conte has no plans for him moving forward. Marseille have become a potential destination for the winger, although a move is considered to be difficult to facilitate at this point. He is on their list of targets right now, with Justin Kluivert of AS Roma joining him.

The difficulty in striking a deal with Spurs could explain why the Ligue 1 side has decided to focus on Kluivert as of now. OM have held direct talks with Roma regarding a potential transfer, and an agreement may just see them end their interest in Gil this summer.

What’s next for Gil?

We had to part ways with €25million and Erik Lamela in an exchange deal with Sevilla that saw Gil join us last summer. However, the latter has not shown any significant signs of promise that he had expressed during his time in La Liga before his permanent transfer.

Gil never seemed to click well enough, although he was not given any consistent game time, having played for just 756 minutes despite making 20 appearances for us. Things did not change under Conte either, which could be down to the boss’ doubts about the youngster’s suitability for Premier League football.

Gil did start life quite well at Mestalla under Jose Bordalas, but his minutes reduced after he ran into a hip injury during his loan spell. Furthermore, the Spanish forward failed to convert his promise into a solid goal output, although he was restricted by the pragmatic, defensive and nitty-gritty style that Bordalas has earned himself a name for.

The 21-year-old attacker made 17 appearances that amounted to 1107 minutes for Los che and earned an assist to his name across all competitions. Gil only had an assist to his tally during his time with us, which shows that he has considerable ground to cover to fulfil his full potential.

Perhaps a move to France could help the Spurs ace out in this circumstance, although we have to wait and see whether they would try their cards for him this summer. Then again, there also arises the question of whether Jorge Sampaoli’s side is plotting to sign Gil permanently or on a loan deal.

Gil still has years left in his bag, and pulling the plug on him now would be a waste of the investment we made last summer. Perhaps we should look to facilitate a loan move to Stade Velodrome, if possible, as their fluid attacking style of play would suit the youngster’s strengths assisting his growth in the process.
