Tottenham are on the verge of signing a swap deal with Sevilla that will see wingers Bryan Gil and Erik Lamela move to Spain.

In addition to the possibility of Lamela joining Seville, Spurs is also paying the La Liga team £ 21.6m for Gil, according to Sky in Italy.

The 20-year-old was not part of the Spanish squad that reached the Euro 2020 semi-finals, but he has three caps for his country and is part of the team that will compete in the Tokyo Olympics.

Gil spent the 2020-21 season on loan with Elche, where he scored four goals and provided three assists as the club avoided relegation from La Liga by two points.

He was also on loan for Leganes after going through the youth system at Sevilla, for which he played 21 times.

Lamela will sign a three-year deal with the Spanish team, ending his eight-year tenure with Spurs.

The 29-year-old was one of several players signed by the club with the money from Gareth Bale’s world record sale to Real Madrid.

Lamela has played for Spurs over 250 times since arriving from Roma despite having suffered frequent injuries.

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

Nuno: No doubt about Kane’s commitment

Tottenham’s new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo says he has “no doubts” about Harry Kane’s commitment to the club.

Kane reiterated his desire to leave Tottenham ahead of Euro 2020 this summer, with a variety of clubs interested in the 27-year-old including Chelsea and Manchester United.

Manchester City tabled a £ 100m offer for the striker in June but the offer has been turned down.

When asked at his first press conference as Spurs head coach last week if he expected to have Kane at the club at the start of the season, Nuno replied, “I have no doubt you will have a good rest and recover well.

“When he arrives he will feel like he has to commit to get better. We are ambitious, we want to do well and we are counting on Harry to do that.

“Harry is our player – period. You don’t have to talk about anything else.

“Now it’s time for him to rest. When he comes back we can have a good chat. I look forward to seeing him join the group.”
