The Italian did state when he arrived to North London that there were going to be multiple players exiting the squad this summer, and it looks like that has started.
Tottenham will also be paying €25m plus add-ons for the deal to go through.
Bryan Gil > Tottenham and Erik Lamela > Seville swap deal now to be completed also on personal terms side. Both players will join the new club on a permanent deal. Here we go... 🤝🇪🇸 #THFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 20, 2021
Paperworks ready to be signed soon. Seville will receive €25m as part of the deal.
The Argentinian, who had been at Spurs since 2013, showed a lot of flashes of the great player he is in his time at North London, but due to injuries and incosistency, he was never able to explode his full potential.
In eight years at the Club, Lamela recorded just 177 appearances and scored 17 goals across all competitions.
Although the fans expected more from him in terms of numbers, the 29 year-old gained a a lot of respect due to his passion and energy every time he step foot on the pitch.
On the other hand, Spurs will be getting the Spanish 20 year-old starboy, as Gil has been considered by many 'Little Cruyff' for his displays on the wing and dribbling skills in tight areas.
Gil will be playing for Spain in the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.
“I liked him from the very first time we chatted. He is very mature, very calm. He has this great energy, and talent-wise there is not much else to say,” Spanish national team head coach, Luis Enrique said about Gil.
"He uses both of his legs well, he protects the ball well, has a great strike and crosses the ball well.”
The left-footed winger, who was on loan at bottom-placed Eibar last season, was 11th in La Liga for total crosses into the box completed and was also in the top 25 players for dribbles completed per-90.
Gil only turned 20 years old this year and has already made more than 50 La Liga appearances.
