Terry Gibson has said on Sky Sports News (5:41pm, July 26, 2021) what Tottenham Hotspur fans can expect from their new signing Bryan Gil.
What’s the story?
Tottenham announced on their official website today the signing of winger Gil from Sevilla.
The 20-year-old Spain international winger has signed a contract with Spurs that runs until 2026.
As part of the deal, Argentina international Erik Lamela, who can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, has moved to La Liga outfit Sevilla.
What Terry Gibson says
Former Tottenham forward Gibson is a La Liga expert and knows Spanish football inside out.
The 58-year-old has raved about Gil and has outlined what Spurs fans can expert from the 20-year-old winger.
Gibson said about Gil on Sky Sports News (5:41pm, July 26, 2021): “He is a player that people will enjoy watching.
“He is an old-fashioned winger, great at dribbling, great first touch, good passer of the ball, and, as you can tell, I am absolutely delighted that Spurs have managed to sign him.”
Exciting for Tottenham Hotspur fans
Gibson’s aforementioned comments about Gil will surely excite Tottenham fans.
Yes, Gil is only 20, but the Spain international is very talented and his attributes could see him flourish at Tottenham.
Perhaps the youngster needs to bulk up a bit and get stronger physically, but he is certainly not lacking in ability and technique.
During his loan spell at Eibar from Sevilla last season, Gil scored four goals and gave three assists in 28 La Liga appearances.
