Sampdoria have reignited their interest in Tottenham winger Bryan Gil and are expected to make an approach to sign the Spaniard on a season-long loan, according to Club Doria 46.
The report states Gil is not in Antonio Conte’s immediate plans and both clubs are now working towards a loan without an option to buy, with Spurs likely to pay a part of his salary.
It signals a second approach for the 21-year-old from Sampdoria director Daniele Faggiano, who was previously put off by Spurs’ demands of a €3 million (£2.5m) loan fee after holding preliminary talks last month.
The proposed move to Italy would be the second loan spell away from North London for Gil after he spent the second half of last term in LaLiga with Valencia.
Joining Tottenham from Sevilla last summer, the Spain international returned to his homeland after struggling to force his way into the line-up under Conte.
Gil returned to Spurs over the summer and was named in Conte’s squad for the tour of South Korea, where he featured in the club’s opening two pre-season friendlies.

Even though Gil would likely receive decent minutes at Sampdoria, it is not exactly the most ideal place for him to play his football as he still needs to get acquainted with English football. But it is better for him to be playing and it makes no sense to keep him this season if Conte doesn’t see him in his plans.
