Arsenal fans react as Tottenham complete Bryan Gil deal
Bryan Gil checked in at Tottenham yesterday and Arsenal fans have been reacting on Twitter. The Gunners had previously been linked with a move for the Spaniard.
It’s Spurs who have won the race though. They have paid around £25 million and sent Erik Lamela in the opposite direction as a makeweight.
The Argentinan has spent eight years at Tottenham but will now embark on a new adventure in La Liga.
Gil won’t link up with Tottenham immediately. He is currently with the Spain squad at the Olympics and will face a race to be ready for the new season.
Arsenal would have welcomed a player like Gil within their ranks. The little magician can play in a number of positions and his versatility could have been key.
Now, the Gunners faithful will have to watch with intrigue as the youngster turns out for the club’s fierce rivals.
What have Arsenal fans been saying about Gil?
Clearly, they’ve not wanted to heap too much praise on their rivals, although they do think Arsenal have missed a trick.
The Gunners fan base believes that Gil would have been an ideal investment in the future and have taken to Twitter to react.
There are some comments that don’t seem overly bothered that the Spaniard has joined Tottenham, although the realists genuinely think they missed a trick.
Here is what they had to say on social media:
