Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter after news emerged linking Lilywhites winger Bryan Gil with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
The north London side look set for a busy winter window as Antonio Conte seeks to improve his lacklustre squad, admitting that he’s evaluating his sides players at the club and will inform club who must go.
Since Conte’s arrival, Tottenham have picked up two wins, one draw and one defeat in all competitions since the Italian took charge, with the club falling to a humiliating 2-1 defeat to Slovenian minnows NS Mura in the Europa Conference league.
Now, according to Mundo Deportivo, Spanish outfit Barcelona are considering a loan move for Spurs winger Bryan Gil as the La Liga side are looking to bolster their attack in January.
Will Conte be at Spurs for next season?
The ace was only taken to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in July after Spurs parted with £21.6m, as well as Argentina’s Erik Lamela, to bring the Spaniard to N17.
What did these Spurs fans make of the transfer link?
“That would be a good move never suitable for the PL”
“40 million and he’s yours”
“Do it. He’s not PL ready”
“Someone book him a flight. Miles off it”
Since joining Spurs, Gil has been unable to find little playing time in the Premier League, instead only being given limited opportunities to showcase his talent for the Lilywhites in the Europa Conference League.
He needs consistent game time and at Barcelona, given their lack of attacking options, the 20-year-old might be able to secure that.
Sanctioning a loan for Gil would simultaneously see him get good game time at the Catalonian side and restore his confidence before returning to Conte’s Spurs side next term.
