Arsenal fans react as Mikel Arteta is linked with Bryan Gil swoop
Arsenal are keen on a deal for Sevilla talent Bryan Gil, according to Mundo Deportivo – and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Gunners will try and shape their squad once again in the summer, with Edu and Mikel Arteta set to work tirelessly.
Arsenal enjoyed some success in the transfer market during the summer but more reinforcements will be necessary.
The report claims that Gil has a release clause of around £30 million, with Sevilla hoping to hand him a two-year extension and increase it to over £150 million.
Gil is highly-rated and one of Barcelona’s top scouts, Vaya Ballabriga, told Sport all about the quality he possesses recently.
He told Sport: “Right now he’s the best player in Spain. He’s so versatile, he can play at full-back, through the middle, on the left-wing. He’s impressive.”
Gil has played 16 times for Eibar during a loan spell this season, scoring three goals and registering three assists.
He has typically operated on the right flank but is a versatile performer and that could suit Arsenal down to the ground.
Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to discuss this deal and plenty feel it would be one worth doing.
Here is what the fan base were saying about rumours suggesting Gil is wanted at the Emirates Stadium.
He might be class but we have Pepe, Martinelli, Auba and ESR who are all currently getting minutes on the Left wing. Don't think we need a winger rbut if we're getting one surely has to be a right winger so Saka doesn't get played into the ground like he is atm

Wow. that would be one hell of a coup. lets get this done. He is proto-type of player that we lack upfront bar Saka… And another Creative playmaker and some defensive fixes, we will be right there up amongst the top 4. #COYG
