Promising Tottenham Hotspur striker Alejo Veliz could head out on loan

Tottenham Hotspur’s young striker, Alejo Veliz, could be in line for an unexpected loan move as the dynamics shift within the squad. The 20-year-old Argentine, who has been settling into life in England and adapting to the demands of the Premier League, may find himself seeking more playing time elsewhere.

Veliz has only accumulated 14 minutes on the pitch under manager Ange Postecoglou, featuring in six substitute appearances. With skipper Son Heung-min set to depart for the Asian Cup, the need for cover becomes crucial, and Veliz stood expected to step into that role.

However, the impending return of Dane Scarlett from his loan spell at Ipswich Town adds competition for playing time. The 19-year-old academy product has already played more minutes for Tottenham, including a 45-minute appearance in the Carabao Cup game against Fulham. Additionally, Scarlett’s return means he cannot play for a third club this season, limiting Veliz’s chances of securing regular minutes.

That is as per football.london, make a claim for Veliz to head out on loan. Considering these factors, a potential loan move for Veliz becomes a viable option. The young striker, known for his goalscoring ability showcased in the Argentine top flight last season ( 11 goals in 24 appearances), may benefit from a four-month stint of regular football, either in England or in a league with a similar pace, such as the Bundesliga.

Veliz to head out on loan?

The decision to send Veliz on loan could also hinge on Tottenham’s activities in the January transfer window. If the club brings in a new attacker capable of playing centrally, alongside Brennan Johnson and Son, and with Richarlison in the mix, opportunities for Veliz might diminish further.

On the other hand, manager Ange Postecoglou may see this as a crucial juncture in Veliz’s development, deeming it time for the young striker to earn more minutes in a Tottenham shirt.
