Since his summer move to Tottenham Hotspur, Alejo Veliz has found himself longing for more playing time on the field. Disappointed with the limited opportunities, the 20-year-old forward is reportedly considering a loan move to Serie A side Bologna in the upcoming January transfer window. The potential deal could also include an option to buy, adding an intriguing dimension to Veliz’s future.
Despite Tottenham Hotspur parting ways with their star striker without securing an immediate replacement in the summer transfer window, Alejo Veliz has yet to emerge as the anticipated solution. The young talent has made only three substitute appearances in the Premier League, leaving fans and analysts alike curious about his role under manager Ange Postecoglou.
While Veliz’s playing time at Tottenham may have been sparse, there are high hopes for his future at the North London club. Tottenham is banking on him proving to be a valuable acquisition, drawing comparisons to the success of Destiny Udogie. Journalist Alasdair Gold has suggested that Veliz has impressed the Tottenham staff during training sessions, hinting at untapped potential.
Despite the positive reception in training, it appears that Veliz is not content with his current role at Tottenham. According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, the young forward is disappointed with the limited game-time he has experienced so far. Eager to showcase his skills on a more consistent basis, Veliz is reportedly open to a loan move to Bologna if the opportunity arises.
Bologna, led by manager Thiago Motta, has identified Veliz as their top target for the striker position. The Serie A side is reportedly keen on securing the young forward on loan and has expressed interest in including an option to buy in the deal. The potential permanent transfer could be valued at up to £13.15 million, underlining Bologna’s ambitious plans for Veliz’s future within their ranks.
