Deal That Will See Eric Lamela Join Sevilla In A Swap Deal Is Reportedly Close

Tottenham are close to finalising a swap deal with Sevilla that will see them sign winger Bryan Gil and Erik Lamela move to Spain.


Along with allowing Lamela to join Sevilla, Spurs will also pay the La Liga side £21.6m for Gil, according to Sky in Italy.


The 20-year-old was not part of the Spain squad that made the semi-finals of Euro 2020, but he does have three caps for his country and is part of the team competing at the Tokyo Olympics.


Gil spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Eibar, where he scored four goals and registered three assists as the club were relegated from La Liga.


He also spent time on loan with Leganes after coming through the youth system at Sevilla, for whom he has played 21 times.


Lamela is set to sign a three-year contract with the Spanish side, bringing to an end his eight-year spell with Spurs.


The 29-year-old was one of a number of players signed by the club with the money raised from the then-world-record sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.


Lamela has played over 250 times for Spurs since arriving from Roma, although he has often struggled with injuries.


The Argentina international contributed four goals and one assist in 35 games for Spurs last season.
