Bryan Gil’s time at Tottenham has been a disaster

Tottenham have already secured the services of Timo Werner for the 2024-25 season, with the club deciding to extend the German international’s loan spell for a further campaign.

In addition, Tottenham could also boosted by the return of Manor Solomon for pre-season after the former Fulham man took to social media last week to reveal that he is back training outdoors.

However, it does not seem as if Spurs are done strengthening their forward line just yet, with the likes of Brentford’s Ivan Toney (Football Transfers) and Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez (HITC) continuing to be heavily linked with a switch to N17.

Romano is confident that Spurs will make at least one more addition to their forward line and he suggested that Gil would be sold and Veliz would be loaned out to make space in the squad for any new arrival.

Alejo Veliz looks set for another loan spell this summer

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “The idea for Tottenham, from what I am hearing, is to add one more offensive player also because there is a concrete possibility to see maybe one player leave in that position.

“For example, Bryan Gil, I think this summer he can go, he can try a new opportunity, I think on a permanent transfer. This is what I’m told, and so they are considering several opportunities, also because Alejo Veliz will return from Sevilla but he will leave on loan again.”

Veliz joined Sevilla on loan in January in the hope of regular football but instead experienced a tough time with the La Liga outfit having played just 29 minutes across six appearances during his time in Spain (transfermarkt).

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear that Bryan Gil‘s time at Tottenham is up and given Veliz’s struggle for game time at Sevilla last season, I can understand why Spurs would be keen to find the right loan move for the Argentine so that he can get some competitive minutes under his belt.

Veliz should be loaned to a lower Premier League side such as Southampton next season where he would play regularly and also get further experience in adapting to the demands of the English top flight.

Gil is a prime example of a player who has returned to Spain on loan and done well, only to head back to Tottenham and fail to make an impression.
