Spurs winger Bryan Gil refused to leave the club on loan during the January transfer but the 23-year-old will likely be sold permanently in the summer, that’s according to journalist Dean Jones.

Ange Postecoglou wanted Gil to move out to get more game time but the winger chose to remain at the club to try and break into Ange’s first team during the second half of the season.

However, Gil’s future does not look too bright because the Tottenham Hotspur management wants to cash in on him and in turn bring in a top-class placement.

Jones said via Give Me Sport: “Bryan Gill as got a lot to prove if he is going to have a future beyond this season at Tottenham. I, personally, can’t see it for him.

“He is the one to really look at in terms of the impact he will have at Tottenham because I think Bryan Gil’s departure is needed to make way for another exciting attacker to come in.

“They have been linked with Raphinha this week, and I know that they have been looking at players like Nico Williams at Athletic Bilbao as well. They’ve been linked with a couple of other players, too.

“I feel like he will be moved on at this stage because he has certainly had opportunities to prove himself up until now, but he just hasn’t quite cut it.”

Bryan Gil’s current contract expires in 2026 and his market value is €16 million so Spurs should be able to bag around €20-25 million for the right-winger. The Spain international has started only two Premier League games this season and the way Kulusevski is playing, Gil is hardly going to feature until May.

But Spurs do need a backup for that position which is why the club is looking at players like Raphinha and Athletic Club’s Nico Williams.

Tottenham have already made formal approaches for Barcelona’s Raphinha while Williams, who has a £43 million release clause, is also on their radar.

If Spurs can finish in the top four, the manager will get a larger transfer budget to spend in the summer so going after a £50-60 million winger won’t be an issue for him. Also, the North London side has money left from Harry Kane’s sale.
