“Agreed in the morning” – Fabrizio Romano shares more exciting transfer news out of Spurs

Spurs: Tottenham set to sign Alejo Veliz

The Argentine is on his way to north London.

Alejo Veliz of Rosario Central has been transferred to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Fabrizio Romano. This information comes amid credible claims that advanced negotiations for Micky van de Ven are underway.


Who will Spurs sign?

Although the summer has been productive so far, chairman Daniel Levy still has a lot of work to do if he wants to give new manager Ange Postecoglou his complete support.

Guglielmo Vicario, James Maddison, and Manor Solomon have all formally signed contracts to relocate to north London, with Postecoglou being especially excited about Maddison’s arrival.

“Really excited to get James as part of the group,” said the Spurs head coach last month.

“Any manager will tell you that part of the key to being a dominant team is having multiple attacking threats and having a midfielder who can score and create goals. They’re not easy to come by. He’s proven himself at that level in the last few years as somebody who can do that.

“When you look at Tottenham the last few years, they’ve been really reliant on the front three to get their goals.

“I thought it was a really good fit for us to look for a player like James.”

There is widespread belief that Spurs could acquire two senior central defensive players in addition to their already confirmed arrivals to strengthen a back line that allowed 63 league goals to be scored last season.

According to dependable media sources like Romano, negotiations to sign van de Ven from Wolfsburg are progressing, and they are still interested in Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba.

In the past few days, Spurs have also been heavily linked with a move for Veliz of Rosario Central, with it looking like Postecoglou is keen to add young and exciting attackers to his ranks as well.

Following talks, it appears the transfer for Veliz has been concluded very quickly, as Romano has now given his famous “here we go” to the deal after verbal agreement in the morning.


“Alejo Véliz to Tottenham, here we go!” wrote Romano on Twitter.

“Talented 2003 striker will join Spurs on long term deal, verbally agreed in the morning despite interest from another top club.

“Package worth around €15m plus add-ons to Rosario Central. Medical to take place in the next days.”

The South American scored 11 goals and bagged a further assist in the Argentine first division last season, but he is now on his way to Tottenham.

How good is Alejo Veliz?

Tim Vickery, a South American football expert, revealed this week on Sky that he had his worries about the player, while other media outlets have complimented Veliz.

Nathan Joyes, a follower of Nottingham Forest and maker of South American football video, referred to the 19-year-old as a “exciting” striker in his remarks regarding the club’s connections to him.

“There’s two exciting forwards in the Primera who can make the step up,” wrote Joyes.

“River’s Lucas Beltran is one – Veliz is the other. He’s only 19 but one who can go to the very top. For £10-15m, get it done.”

Meanwhile, Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig has called the player “one of the most interesting young strikers” on his continent.
