There is a bit of the Darren Anderton about 20-year-old Bryan Gil who Tottenham are on the verge of signing for £21million plus Erik Lamela.

When Spurs signed Anderton from Portsmouth in 1992 he came with the nickname 'Shaggy' after the Scooby-Doo character, and as well as being the same age and position, Gil also bears a passing resemblance to Scooby's side-kick.

Spurs fans will be happy enough if Gil emulates Anderton who Tottenham paid £1.75m in 1992.There is potential for him to reach similar standards but Anderton had already scored in a FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool before Terry Venables swooped, Gil is yet to have his big moment against a pedigree opponent.

Gil is still some way behind those two players but there is huge promise and that's why he is in Japan for the Olympics at the moment.

Mendilibar watched Gil score four goals in a team that struggled in attack scoring only 29 times as they finished bottom.

Gil still feels like someone who would have contributed and selling him is seen more as the lesser evil compared to losing Jules Kounde than them believing he is not going to make it.

Other Sevilla fans - recognising the sale of Gil means Kounde is now likely to stay - have accepted the sale but complained of the price suggesting that a similar sale with roles reversed would have the English club asking for €80m, not €25m.Sevilla youth team director Pablo Blanco calls Gil and old school left-footed left winger with 'rubber ankles' all the better for wrapping his foot around the ball and crossing from tight areas.
