Bryan Gil has brushed aside concerns over whether he will be able to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League, insisting that he is looking forward to the new challenge at Tottenham.
Gil was the first player to arrive through the Tottenham doors this summer. While subsequent arrivals, Pierluigi Gollini and Sergio Romero are with the Tottenham squad, the Spaniard is yet to meet his new teammates, having been involved in the Olympics.
The 20-year-old came as a substitute in the final and produced a fine cameo but he had to settle for a silver medal as the Spanish were beaten 2-1 by Brazil on Saturday. Gil even crashed one against the bar with minutes to go in normal time against Brazil as he gave Spurs fans a glimpse of what he can do.
The winger admitted that he is looking forward to the challenges he will face at his new club.
Gil told Eldesmarque Seville about his move to Spurs: “It has been a great step in my career.
“People say that the Premier League is very physical, but I want new challenges, see how I adapt.
“The best thing for me was to go there, I am looking forward to getting there and starting to work with my new teammates.”

Gil will certainly bring something different to our front three as none of Son, Lucas or Bergwijn consistently like to take the defenders on in a one vs one situation.
Even if the Spaniard is not a regular starter initially, he can still offer a lot coming off the bench against tired legs.
The fact that he was involved in the Olympics also means that he is match fit and Nuno can thus integrate him into the squad straight away.
