Brighton open discussions to sign Tottenham attacker Bryan Gil

Brighton & Hove Albion have opened negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur over the potential transfer of Bryan Gil, according to the Daily Mail.

The Seagulls are in talks with their north London counterparts to finalise a move for the out-of-favour attacker with the transfer deadline looming on Thursday.

Brighton are exploring the possibility of securing an initial loan deal for Gil, who has dropped down the pecking order at Tottenham. It is unclear if any transfer will have an option to buy inserted.

The versatile attacker has also caught the attention of Nottingham Forest.

The Tricky Trees, despite the Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR) sanctions hanging over their head, want to add attacking reinforcements and have been linked with Giovanni Reyna and Gil.

Fiorentina are also reportedly interested in securing a deal for Gil.

Since the appointment of Ange Postecoglou last summer, Gil has started just two Premier League games.

Despite arriving from Sevilla in 2021 in a £21 million deal, the winger has struggled to make a significant impact during his time at Spurs.

He was loaned out to Valencia and later to Sevilla in his quest for regular first-team action. 

Since his move to north London, Gil has only managed four league starts for Tottenham and has failed to score.

Despite various loan spells to revitalise his career, the winger has faced challenges earning regular minutes, even amid Tottenham’s recent injury crisis.

He will hope that his next move will provide him with the game time to re-establish his once-heralded talent.

Gil will hope he can find some game time between now and the end of the season with Ansu Fati battling a long-term injury and Kaoru Mitoma away for the Asian Cup.
