Bryan Gil will be cruelly let go by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy this summer at a drastically reduced asking price, and there are rumors that a surprise move to the Netherlands is in the works.


The 23-year-old forward relocated to north London in the summer of 2021. Erik Lamela was granted permission to transfer in the other direction as part of the agreement, which saw Tottenham pay Sevilla €25 million (£21.6 million) for the player. In light of Gil’s standing as one of Spanish football’s most promising prospects at the time, Levy and company appeared to have made a wise decision.


Nevertheless, with just 42 appearances for Tottenham in all competitions, the four-time Spain international has not been able to leave his mark.


And after spending two stints on loan—first to Valencia, then to his old team Sevilla—Gil was given the opportunity to secure a regular spot under Ange Postecoglou this season.


The player, however, has found it difficult to establish a consistent spot because players such as Brennan Johnson, Dejan Kulusevski, and Heung-min Son are all ranked higher of him. In addition, Timo Werner’s January transfer from Tottenham has further pushed him down the ladder despite his season-long total of just 11 games, just two of which were starts.


Levy had informed Gil that he was free to quit the team permanently and that the club was ready to suffer an enormous loss, according to a report that surfaced earlier this week. Werner’s loan at Spurs is expected to turn into a permanent €20 million move this summer.


Gil will make an unexpected move to the Netherlands in the Tottenham moves.

According to that story, Gil had his sights set on rejoining Sevilla, the team from Andalusia where he first gained recognition and completed his academy training.


New sources from the Netherlands, however, state that unexpected negotiations about a transfer to Feyenoord are already in progress and that a move to De Kuip is now the 23-year-old’s most likely destination.


In light of this, 1908.nl reports that the defending Eredivisie winners are working hard to finalize a deal for Gil after establishing “concrete lines” of communication with his representative.


According to reports, the Rotterdam team “thinks very highly” of Gil and has made a “concrete proposal” to his agent in an attempt to close a deal before the summer transfer window opens.


As per the report, Levy has indicated that he is amenable to being sold and will not obstruct the Dutch side. The Tottenham manager is naturally seeking the highest price for the player, whose current contract is set to end in 2026.


Therefore, a cut-price fee of between €6 million and €10 million (£5.1 million and £8.5 million) will probably be sufficient to complete the deal. If an obligation to make the move permanent is included, Spurs may even contemplate making the transfer on loan.


Gil, nevertheless, is aware that he must move on for the sake of his career, so there’s still hope that a deal can be reached quickly to guarantee the Spain international joins Feyenoord on July 1.
