Arsenal’s attempts to sign Sevilla winger Bryan Gil could be stopped in their tracks if the Spaniard signs a new contract with his current club.
Spanish publication AS reports that the Gunners, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all taken a keen interest in the 20-year-old, who has been labelled the “little Cruyff’ by sections of the media.
Gil currently has a release clause set at €50m (£43m) but that is expected to increase to a “minimum” of €100m (£86m) if he puts pen to paper on a new four-year deal in the coming weeks.
The midfielder recently made his senior debut for Spain, playing a World Cup qualifier against Greece last month. He is currently on loan at Eibar but Sevilla are likely to hand him regular game time on his return in the summer.
It is, therefore, very unlikely that Gil will be making the switch to Arsenal. The club are probably focusing their efforts on keeping Martin Odegaard anyway, who could cost between £40m and £50m.
