Lamela, a move from Tottenham’s god, won the 2001 winger prospect.
Tottenham’s new football director, Fabio Paratic, gave up Eric Lamela, 29, and brought in a promising Spanish winger born in 2001.
Fabrio Romano, a soccer reporter for Sky Sports in Italy, said on July 20 (Korea time), “Tottenham and Sevilla agreed on a swap deal. Lamela goes to Sevilla, Brienne Hill comes to Tottenham. Sevilla said the deal will be completed with 25 million euros (33.8 billion won) in Sevilla and an additional bonus clause. According to follow-up reports, no personal agreement has been reached between each player and the club, but the transfer is expected to be completed soon.
Lamela is a player who invested some of the transfer fees earned after moving Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013. Having inherited Bale’s back number 11, he was a rising star in AS Roma with 67 games, 21 goals and 13 assists. After the transfer, however, Tottenham suffered frequent back injuries for eight seasons, resulting in only 37 goals and 47 assists in 257 games.
In the 2020-21 season, Lamela, who was still classified out of power due to a calf injury at the beginning of the season, has completely lost her position in Tottenham as a substitute in the second half even after her return. Tottenham put Lamela on the release list, and Italian clubs showed interest again.
Tottenham focused on strengthening the team rather than securing transfer fees in the process. The result reflects the intention of the new head of Paratichi. Meanwhile, negotiations were made with Sevilla, who put Spanish winger Brian Hill, born in 2001.
Hill made his first-team debut in the 2018-19 season at the age of 17. In the past two seasons, he has been on loan to Leganes and Avar for the past two seasons. Although he is young, he is said to have good speed and ability to handle balls, as well as kick skills and playmaking. On March 25, 2021, he was called up to the Spanish national soccer team to make his A-match debut.
