Report: £21m player wants out of Tottenham, four clubs are now keen to sign him
Gil has cut a frustrated figure in north London ever since he made the £21.5 million switch from Sevilla last summer, with Erik Lamela going the other way (The Guardian).
The 21-year-old was sent out on loan during the second-half of the last campaign as he returned to La Liga with Valencia.
He looked set to join Los Che once again over the summer but the move was blocked as Spurs failed to secure a replacement.
Antonio Conte seemingly has reservations about the youngster’s capability of playing in the Premier League and he’s been limited to just six substitute appearances this season.
Now, it seems that the Spaniard has set his sights on another mid-season move away from north London.
Gil wants out of Tottenham
Estadio Deportivo reports that Gil wants out of Tottenham in January and favours a move back to Spain.
The youngster is eager to start playing regular first-team football once again after playing for just 76 minutes under Conte so far this season.
The Spanish outlet notes that Valencia still hold an interest in Gil after his move to join Gennaro Gattuso’s side was blocked over the summer.
But other Spanish sides are also keeping an eye on Gil’s situation in north London, with Cadiz CF and Real Sociedad said to be keen.
A return to Sevilla is also not being ruled out and the La Liga outfit’s manager, Jorge Sampaoli, is a huge fan of the Tottenham youngster.
TBR View: Gil needs to be playing regular first-team football
Gil arrived in north London as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain, but he has struggled to adapt to English football.
It seems clear that Conte doesn’t see him as a first-team player at Spurs and has doubts over his suitability for Premier League football.
The Spaniard needs to be playing regularly in order to continue his development and it would be best for both parties if he secured a loan move in January. But Conte will undoubtedly want a replacement, especially after injuries to his attacking players left him short before the World Cup.
