Bryan Gil describes 19-year-old Tottenham forward as a ‘tank
There are still some Tottenham Hotspur players reporting to Hotspur Way for training despite the fact that many of them are away on international duty.
One such player is Spurs forward Bryan Gil, who is now making a full recovery after undergoing surgery for a groin injury.
The Tottenham prospect missed the start of the season after having surgery in August for a groin problem.
Alejo Veliz, who joined Spurs in the summer, is still at Hotspur Way in an effort to win over Ange Postecoglou.
The 19-year-old Argentine has been working out with the Tottenham first team, claims Alasdair Gold.
Veliz and Gil were working out at the Hotspur Way gym on Friday, when the former shared a photo of the two on Instagram stories.
Veliz was in the background while Gil took a photo while performing chest exercises with two 20 kg dumbbells on a bench.
The Spaniard tagged Veliz, wrote “with the tank” as the image’s description, and added other emojis, including a “soon” symbol with an arrow.
It’s encouraging to watch Veliz and Gil become friends at Hotspur Way. Both players are highly exceptional young athletes, so it will be interesting to watch how they develop.
Hopefully, it won’t take long for both to click on the field and produce results for Spurs.
Report: Tottenham now planning to make two really important January signings for Ange postecoglou
Ahead of the January transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur is apparently actively considering moves to fix two important areas of their roster.
GiveMeSport, a sports news website, claims that Spurs want to sign a defender and an additional forward.
Despite losing their all-time leading scorer Harry Kane, Spurs greatly strengthened Ange Postecoglou’s team over the summer.
Guglielmo Vicario, Micky van de Ven, and James Maddison are just a few of the newcomers to Tottenham who have already made a positive impression.
Spurs, however, might feel as though Postecoglou has been under-replaced up to the January transfer window after failing to address a lack of depth at center-back.
And according to a recent source, Spurs intend to deal with this problem during the upcoming transfer window.
Tottenham planning two January signings
According to GiveMeSport, Tottenham has determined that the center-back and striker positions are their top objectives for the January transfer season.
It follows late moves out of North London by Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga.
Of course, Eric Dier’s future is also in doubt after it appeared that the defender would leave in the summer.
The 29-year-old has yet to play under Postecoglou this season and has been benched by the Australian so far.
In fact, Ashley Phillips, 18, was chosen as a substitute over the Englishman at Turf Moor the previous weekend.
The Tottenham News View
Hearing that the club has already determined the problem areas prior to the upcoming window is encouraging.
Given our current lack of depth at center back, Postecoglou’s season at Spurs will depend heavily on the acquisition of a new defender.
It would be odd, especially in light of the Brennan Johnson acquisition made on the final day of the transfer window, for Tottenham to sign yet another forward.
Although Postecoglou has plenty of offensive options, in our opinion, center-back should be given priority.
