Tottenham have signed Bryan Gil from Sevilla with Érik Lamela joining the Spanish club as part of the deal. Spurs will pay an additional €25m (£21.4m) for the 20-year-old winger.

Gil’s contract runs until 2026. He will link up with his new teammates at the conclusion of the Olympics, where he is representing Spain.

The move brings an end to Lamela’s eight-year stint at Spurs. The 29-year-old Argentinian joined from Roma in August 2013 and made 257 appearances in all competitions. Spurs said on their website: “A club man through and through, we wish Érik all the best for the future.”

Tottenham have said all summer that they have no intention of selling Harry Kane, despite interest from Manchester City and the striker saying he is ready for a new challenge. The new Spurs manager, Nuno Espírito Santo, said last week: “Harry is our player – period. No need to talk about anything else. Now is the moment for Harry to recover his energy [after Euro 2020].

“When he comes back [to training], we will have time to speak. But now is the moment for Harry to rest and prepare for what is coming – I’m looking forward to him joining the group and for us to start working together. The best is to work with the best players around, and Harry is one of those.”
