Tottenham signs Bryan Gil in Erik Lamela swap deal with Sevilla

Gil is new Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo's second signing, after the arrival of goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini from Serie A club Atalanta on a season-long loan last week.

Gil is currently at the Olympic Games in Tokyo and started in Spain's 1-0 win over Australia on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur has signed winger Bryan Gil from Sevilla on a five-year contract with midfielder Erik Lamela joining the Spanish side as part of the deal, the Premier League club said on Monday.

Gil spent last season on loan at Eibar, where he scored four goals and registered three assists in La Liga as they were relegated after finishing bottom.

British media reported that Tottenham would pay 25 million euros ($29.47 million) for the 20-year-old, who has three caps for Spain. Gil is currently at the Tokyo Olympics and started in Spain's 1-0 win over Australia on Sunday.
