Report: Tottenham currently in talks over loaning out 'tremendous' player, Paratici has taken action
Sampdoria want to sign playmaker Bryan Gil on loan from Tottenham Hotspur and Fabio Paratici has flown to Italy for talks.
Di Marzio reports that Paratici went back to his native country to discuss some potential outgoings for unwanted members of Antonio Conte’s squad.
Gil falls into that category – it was reported in May that they want to sell him – but another loan exit could be on the cards instead.
The Spaniard spent the second half of last season on loan with Valencia in La Liga, where coach Jose Bordalas deemed Gil ‘tremendous’.
Sampdoria want Bryan Gil
It seems he has ability but just did not adjust well to the demands of playing in the Premier League after being signed by Nuno Espirito Santo.
Conte is even more demanding and signed Dejan Kulusevski to play on the right of his front three, offering an immediate upgrade on Gil.
It remains to be seen whether Sampdoria can get a deal over the line for the temporary signing of Gil, with talks now ongoing.
By hiring Conte, Daniel Levy rapidly set about undoing the mistake he made in hiring Nuno, and now he is having to reverse the mistakes the Portuguese manager made in the transfer market.
Spurs have a huge opportunity with Conte but they have to give him the players he wants, and just as importantly, get rid of the ones he does not.
It remains to be seen whether Spurs can get the deal they want here, although it has been reported that Marseille also want to loan in Gil.
That competition should be a good thing, although it is not a great look to be loaning out a fairly major summer signing after just one season.
