After nearly 3 years since moving to Tottenham from Sevilla in 2021, Gil has found it almost impossible to integrate into the English football environment. The Spanish star was not used by Spurs’ previous coach, Antonio Conte, and the 22-year-old striker’s situation is not very positive under the current Ange Postecoglou.
This season, the player born in 2001 has only played 217 minutes in all competitions. Gil’s current contract with Tottenham is valid until 2026, but the north London club’s leadership wants to sell the former Sevilla star this winter.
A source from TEAMtalk said, Tottenham as well as Brighton are trying to find common ground today in order to promptly complete all procedures before the transfer market closes.
A loan contract with an option to buy at the end of the season is a possible solution that both sides are aiming for. Negotiations are progressing quickly, so it is likely that the deal will be completed in a few hours.
In addition to Gil, midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is also a name rumored to leave Spurs this January. However, according to recent updates from journalist Fabrizio Romano, it is likely that the Danish star will stay at the club until the end of this season because coach Postecoglou needs the former Southampton star to be a backup plan for Yves Bissouma in the near future.
