Lazio have emerged as a potential destination for Tottenham winger Bryan Gil this summer, according to the print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Following a successful loan spell at Sevilla, where Gil tasted European glory in the Europa League final, the 22-year-old’s future is up in the air.
Lazio’s gaffer Maurizio Sarri is reportedly planning squad revamps after securing Champions League qualification and has reportedly identified Gil as a target. Gil’s future at Sevilla is uncertain as he prepares to return to North London. This has opened up the possibility for Lazio to make a move for the player if the new Spurs head coach does not see him fitting into their plans.
Gil’s loan return to Sevilla has sparked a resurgence in his career, allowing him to showcase his talent on the European stage. Lazio’s recent qualification for the Champions League has sparked interest in bolstering their squad, with their sights set on the aforementioned opportunity.
According to sources, Sarri has expressed his desire to sign Domenico Berardi from Sassuolo, however, it seems that Gil is being considered as a feasible and cost-effective alternative.
According to the report, there are indications that Gil’s possible return to Tottenham could mean that Sevilla will not opt to sign him permanently. This development could potentially open the door for Lazio to pursue the winger.
The future of Gil at N17 remains uncertain and is highly parallel on the selection of the new head coach.
Should Spurs appoint a coach with a track record of supporting young players, such as Ruben Amorim or Ange Postecoglou, it is possible that Gil may have a significant role to play in the upcoming seasons.
With evident talent, the 22-year-old is poised to make a strong impression in the upcoming preseason, potentially securing his spot in the squad for the 2023-24 campaign.
