Gil’s impending move to Tottenham from Bryan is bad news for some of their Premier League rivals.
The two clubs are believed to be in final negotiations over a £ 21.6million deal, which will also see Erik Lamela go in the opposite direction.
As a result, Sevilla sporting director Monchi is under no immediate pressure to sell French defender Jules Kounde, whose Manchester City offer was reportedly rejected for last summer.
Koundé, 22, is under contract with La Liga until the summer of 2024, which means Sevilla have all the cards as it stands.
The news will be a blow to Chelsea and Manchester United, both interested in Kounde, while Real Madrid have also retained an interest.
Tottenham’s new director of football, Fabio Paratici, is said to have a great relationship with Kounde’s agency, but despite this, a decision is unlikely to materialize.
Kounde wants his next club to play in the Champions League, so with Spurs competing in the Europa Conference League this season, it looks like they have a distant dream of finalizing a transfer right now.
