Bryan Gil has completed a five-year move worth £21.6 million from Sevilla to Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The 20-year-old attacker was part of a swap deal that saw Erik Lamela move to the Spanish League side on a three-year deal.

Gil is currently representing the Spanish U23 national team at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and starred in their 1-0 triumph over Australia on Sunday, July 25.

However, his deal is still subject to international clearance but he is expected to join left-back Sergio Reguilon at the end of the summer games according to Sky Sports.

Gil was promoted into Sevilla senior team from their academy in 2019 but only made 21 appearances and his only goal was in the Europa League in November 2019.

The youngster also spent some time on loan at Leganes in the second half of the 2019/20 season but didn’t do enough to earn a permanent deal with them.

Meanwhile, Lamela’s departure ends his eight-year spell with Spurs, who signed him from Roma in August 2013 for a then club-record fee of £30m.
