It has been argued that England’s English Premier League (EPL) Tottenham Hotspur may pursue a swap deal for midfielder Brian Hill in the summer transfer market to reinforce the precarious goalkeeper position. The exchange target is Yacin Bunu, goalkeeper of Sevilla in La Liga, Spain. Just in time, Hill is active in Sevilla.
On the 14th local time, The Bootroom, a British football media, reported this by citing Spanish media La Razon.
Bunu was born in 1991 and is 31 years old this year. He was born in Quebec, Canada and holds Moroccan nationality. He played for the Moroccan national team at the World Cup in Qatar last year and made an outstanding performance. Thanks to Bunu’s ‘impenetrable defense’, Morocco finished 4th, the highest ever in World Cup participation.
He joined Sevilla in the summer of 2019. After returning to the team in 2020 after going on loan to Girona, he has been showing stable performance as the main gatekeeper. In the 2021-22 season, he played 31 La Liga games and 19 games this season.
According to the media, Bunu’s contract has a buyout clause of 44 million pounds (KRW 68.06 billion). However, the media forecasts that Tottenham can cut Bunu’s transfer fee in exchange for heel.
Hill is currently playing on loan at Sevilla. Seville is also his hometown. Hill wore a Tottenham uniform in the summer of 2021, but could hardly get a place in the club, went on loan to Valencia and eventually headed back to Seville in January. According to multiple media, Hill is also said to want to leave Tottenham. 온라인바카라
Tottenham urgently needs reinforcement of goalkeeper resources. Hugo Lloris, the great gatekeeper, is in a situation where parting with Tottenham is certain.
Lloris is 36 years old this year, and has been in charge of Tottenham goal for over 10 years since the summer of 2012, but his contract expires in the summer of 2024. He has already announced his retirement from the French national team.
Moreover, Lloris left the ground earlier this month with an injury. It is expected to be absent for at least a month. After his return, his skills cannot be guaranteed. Currently, backup resource Fraser Foster is active, but Foster will soon turn 35, and his contract with Tottenham is until next summer.
