Tottenham beat multiple clubs including AC Milan and Roma to sign Argentine sensation Alejo Veliz

It’s been two months since the transfer window slammed shut, and Tottenham Hotspur’s astute acquisition of Argentine sensation Alejo Veliz still stands as a testament to their forward-thinking approach. In a battle against heavyweight clubs like AC Milan and AS Roma, Spurs emerged victorious in the race to secure the services of the highly-touted 20-year-old.

Veliz made his Spurs debut in a thrilling 2-1 victory over Liverpool last month. However, the excitement surrounding his arrival somewhat remained overshadowed by VAR and refereeing controversies that engulfed the game.

The pursuit of Veliz was no easy task, with clubs like Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Roma, and AC Milan all expressing strong interest in the talented Argentine. However, it was Tottenham that successfully navigated the complex negotiations, ultimately securing Veliz’s signature for a reported fee of £13m. That is as per The Athletic (subscription required).

Intriguingly, the Veliz transfer was concluded just four days before Harry Kane departed for Bayern Munich. This marked a crucial period for the club, with the transition from one era to another, and the acquisition of Veliz played a pivotal role in shaping the club’s future.

An Argentine supertalent

The hope among Spurs fans is that Veliz will prove to be another astute signing under the guidance of new the manager, Ange Postecoglou, following in the footsteps of emerging talents like Destiny Udogie and Pape Sarr.

Veliz’s arrival at Tottenham comes at a time when the club is undergoing a transformation under the leadership of Postecoglou. The Australian tactician introduced an attacking and dynamic style of play, and Veliz’s addition remains set to further enhance the squad’s depth and talent.
