Deporte Valenciano have revealed that Valencia wish to sign Bryan Gil on an 18-month loan deal, with an option to make the deal permanent in the summer of 2024.
Gil got his first Premier League start for Tottenham against Aston Villa on Sunday, which came a year and a half after his switch to the club from Sevilla.
Despite the winger’s lack of game time in North London, Deporte Valenciano claim that a deal for the player will not be easy for Valencia to pull off in January.
It is explained that while Los Che want to sign the 21-year-old this month, a deal with Spurs will be as difficult to agree as it was back in the summer.
This is because Antonio Conte will only let Gil leave the club once the Lilywhites bring another attacking player through the door. The report also explains that the operation ‘would not be cheap at all’ for Valencia.
Deporte Valenciano assert that Gennaro Gattuso’s men wish to sign the Spaniard on an 18-month loan deal, with a purchase option of around €25m-€30m (£22.1m-£26.5m).
Finally, the publication adds that even though Gil wants to return to the Mestalla, the player would have to take a pay cut as Valencia would not be able to afford to match his current salary.
Spurs Web Opinion
The sense I get from Conte is that the Italian views Gil as a potential prospect for the future, even though he does not think the Spaniard is physically ready for the Premier League at the moment. So, I suspect Spurs will likely not add a purchase option in any loan deal for the winger.
