‘Next Messi’ – Tottenham fans hail Fabio Paratici transfer masterstroke after second summer deal

Tottenham fans are delighted as Bryan Gil’s move from La Liga side Sevilla has been confirmed with long-serving winger Erik Lamela going the other way as part of the deal.

Gil, 20, has signed a long-term contract in N17 until 2026.

The deal is still subject to international clearance, but if all is fine then there will be no problem at all with this transfer.

Gil made his European football bow as Sevilla won the Europa League in 2019/20. He featured four times in the competition and scored against Qarabag before joining Leganes on loan for the rest of the season, scoring in a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in July, 2020.

The 20-year-old is currently competing for Spain at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, where he has played in the U23s’ draw against Egypt and the most recent 1-0 victory over Australia.

A highly-rated prospect in Spain, it’s fair to see the Gil transfer has Tottenham fans talking.
