Reporter drops Bryan Gil’s big exit request




writing on his personal Twitter profileTribuna Deportiva’s Spanish journalist Hector Gomez has made a major request to leave Tottenham Hotspur involving Fabio Paratici’s summer signing Bryan Gil.

The Lowdown: Conte makes “evaluations”…

Spurs manager Antonio Conte has assessed his squad while deciding who should take part in this month’s transfer window.

The likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli, Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga and Joe Rodon are all currently linked with a possible departure from the club before the transfer deadline, as reliable journalist Alasdair Gold explains.

It comes as the Italian also aims to bolster his options and build his own Tottenham side that can challenge silverware, with reason to believe Paratici is set to have a busy end to January.

Sharing surprise news on the exit, Gomez claimed a La Liga side had their sights set on signing Spurs starlet Gil.

The latest: Valencia are ‘trying to close’ signing Gil…

According to information from the journalist, as he explained on TwitterValencia are now trying to ‘close the transfer’ of Gil from Spurs as they consider a deal for the 20-year-old.

The Spaniard has played some valuable minutes in the Premier League since signing from Paratici last summer, with the majority of his playing time spent in cup competitions (WhoScored).

The verdict: Not permanently…

Although Gomez is unsure whether this ‘transfer’ is a loan or a permanent deal, Spurs are expected to greenlight a move for Gil if it’s only temporary.

The 20-year-old showed plenty of promise last season in the Spanish top flight, even drawing comparisons to Dutch football icon Johan Cruyff. Brilliant on loan at Eibar in 2020/21, the talented playmaker averaged 2.4 successful dribbles per 90 in his 28 league appearances, more than any Spurs player in the concurrent Premier campaign League (WhoScored).

To continue their development, Tottenham should consider a possible loan to Valencia, but letting a player of their potential leave for good would be foolish to say the least.
