Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas has claimed that Tottenham would be preared to part with Bryan Gil and Japhet Tanganga if they can bring in quality replacements before the transfer window closes on September 1.

Tottenham have already made seven signings so far this summer and have turned their focus towards moving out fringe players at the moment (Football.London) with Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso already having been sent on loan to Napoli and Villarreal, respectively.

Spurs still have other players within their ranks including as Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks, who do not hold a place in Antonio Conte’s plans for the future (The Athletic). However, the likes of Gil and Tanganga have both been involved in the Italian’s Premier League match day squads this season.

Conte admitted recently that the north London club must make more signings if they want to move out players who are in his plans (Evening Standard). Now, it has further been revealed that the likes of Gil and Tanganga will only leave if it means better players arrive before the window closes. 

Fabrizio Romano has already revealed that Valencia are set to sign Gil on a season-long loan move. Tanganga, on the other hand, has attracted interest from both Nottingham Forest (The Athletic) and AC Milan (Calciomercato).

Spurs Web Opinion:

The current situation could suggest that Spurs may have replacements lined up for the duo, depending on the situation surrounding their future. Leeds United’s Daniel James has been touted to be a potential replacement for Gil (Daily Mail), which does make sense now that the Spaniard is in line to leave shortly.

Tanganga’s future is still clouded in uncertainty, but his departure would force Spurs to bring in another central defender. They have been linked with Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah recently (Dean Jones), but whether their bitter rivals would purposefully strengthen Tottenham or not remains to be seen.
