‘Superstar’ player whom Tottenham were thinking of selling in January, could probably stay
The Spurs’ season has gotten off to a fantastic start. Even if they are leading the Premier League table, they still have a ways to go and will want all the assistance they can get. For Angel Postecoglou, the January transfer window may be crucial in terms of both arriving and exiting players.
Tottenham could now keep Bryan Gil
In the summer of 2021, Tottenham acquired Bryan Gil from Sevilla in a player-plus-cash trade that also saw Erik Lamela go in the opposite direction.
Many people considered the “superstar” Spaniard to be one of the country’s greatest talents at the time. Although he is an excellent player, he hasn’t played much for Spurs due to various reasons.
Gil has been deployed on loan twice, and it was widely anticipated that he would depart in the summer as well. A surgically treated injury, however, eliminated those possibilities.
Spurs’ priority during the January transfer window, according to The Times, will be departures. The club was rumored to allow Eric Dier, Hugo Lloris, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to depart, as well as Gil.
But the story suggests that Gil might still be needed at Tottenham in light of the critical injuries sustained by Manor Solomon and Ivan Perisic.
He could be a star under Ange Postecoglou
The managers Bryan Gil has played for thus far have been a major factor in his inability to flourish at Tottenham.
Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte did not play a style of game that is conducive to players such as Gil. His struggles have been caused by the fact that he has never fully fit into their systems.
Gil might really blow out under someone like Postecoglou, though. The Aussie will have a ton of alternatives thanks to his adaptability, and he could succeed in this system.
Gil has since recovered from his injuries and resumed training. Whether he receives opportunities following the international break will be interesting to watch.
