Tottenham have told Valencia they are open to selling Bryan Gil this summer less than a year after signing him, according to AS. 

Gil joined Spurs last year but struggled to establish himself in the starting line-up despite arriving with plenty of promise. 

The 21-year-old left the club in January to join Valencia on loan until the end of the season and he impressed during the return to his native Spain. 

AS now report the LaLiga side have requested to take Gil back on loan with Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte thought to have left him out of his plans for next season.

But the report adds Spurs have informed Valencia they are ‘satisfied’ with a permanent deal instead and are expecting to receive offers for the winger with the transfer window set to open. 

Gil, who played 37 games across all competitions this season, is contracted at Spurs until 2025 after signing a five-year deal upon his arrival (The Athletic).

It would be a shame for Spurs to sell Gil this quickly given he hasn’t had much of a chance to fully settle into English football. 

He would be a good squad option to have for the cup competitions and even off the bench with two extra substitutes allowed next season. 

But if Spurs believe he is not the right type of profile for the club going forward, then it’s hard to question their decision to sell if it comes to that.
