Report: Antonio Conte’s transfer stance on Spurs player with 73 minutes this season hasn’t changed

Bryan Gil might be in hot water with Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou

Tottenham Hotspur star Bryan Gil will be allowed to leave on loan if Antonio Conte brings in a replacement

According to transfer news on Super Deporte (h/t the Express), manager Antonio Conte’s transfer stance on Bryan Gil remains unchanged ahead of the January window.

The Spanish winger was shipped to Valencia in January earlier this year on a loan spell after struggling to get playing time in his debut season at Spurs. The theme was all set to continue.

Another temporary move to Los Che was very close to happening, only to be blocked at the 11th hour due to Conte not having a replacement lined up for him. That has cost Gil this season.

The 21-year-old is at an age where he needs playing time to improve and continue his development. He has played 73 minutes across competitions for the Lilywhites this campaign, which is a laughable show of trust (or the lack of it) from the club.

What next for Gil?

There have been situations where we had to field only Harry Kane and Son Heung-min up top and play a 3-5-2 formation. The squad was put under more strain when Son’s eye-socket fracture after the game against Olympique de Marseille narrowed down our chances.

But throughout the injury troubles of, Dejan Kulusevski, Lucas Moura, and Richarlison, Gil hardly saw any meaningful minutes. It’s detrimental to his career if we stick to our strategy of what to do with him.

It seems that he doesn’t have Conte’s trust to play games here – at least for now. Fans would definitely hope that despite Gil’s future at N17 in the winter, the club gets in another quality attacker.
