Report: Arsenal hold interest in signing Sevilla starlet Bryan Gil

According to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal have registered an interest in signing Sevilla youngster, Bryan Gil.

The 20-year-old is enjoying a stellar loan campaign with Eibar over in Spain at the moment. He is highly rated and, according to reports, is being courted by Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo states he currently has a release clause of around £30m, however, a new deal with Sevilla will increase that to over £150m, meaning Arsenal and Barca may need to move quickly.

Gil is considered one of the best talents in Spain at the moment. Indeed, one of Barcelona’s top scouts has already compared him to Neymar, telling Sport he has been impressed with Gil’s ability.

 

“Right now the best player in Spain and I compare him with Neymar. He is so versatile, he can play at full-back, through the middle, on the left wing. He’s impressive,” Vaya Ballabriga stated.

Gil has made 16 La Liga appearances this season, scoring three goals. He is already a Spanish under-21 international, and is widely expected to go on and become a regular at senior level.

Arsenal certainly have an eye for a player and Gil looks like being someone who is a top talent. However, they face competition from Barcelona and it seems they’ll also have to act fast.

Quick, versatile, and with talent in the locker that has clearly not been fully harnessed yet, Gil would be a superb fit at The Emirates.
