Tottenham announce Bryan Gil and sends Erik Lamela to Sevilla
Tottenham announced the signing of Bryan Gil from Sevilla, with Erik Lamela joining the Spanish club as part of the deal.
The spanish young winger, 20, joins Spurs on a contract until 2026.
Bryan made his European football bow as Sevilla won the Europa League in 2019/20. He featured four times in the competition and scored against Qarabag before joining Leganes on loan for the rest of the season, scoring in a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in July, 2020.

Subject to international clearance, Bryan will join up with the Club at the conclusion of the Olympics in Tokyo where he is representing Spain.
Going the other way to Spain, Erik joined with the London club from AS Roma in August, 2013. Over the next eight seasons, the all-action attacking midfielder made 257 appearances in all competitions, helping them to reach three cup finals and finish second and third twice in the Premier League. Now 29, Erik took his tally of caps for Argentina to 25 during his time here.

Spurs will also pay Sevilla £21.6m for Gil in a swap-plus-cash deal, according to Sky in Italy.
Lamela’s departure ends his eight-year spell with Spurs, who signed him from Roma in August 2013 for a then club-record fee of £30m.
He was one of a number of players signed by the club with the money raised from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
