Alejo Véliz from Tottenham is set to join Sevilla on loan.
Per journalist Fabrizio Romano, Véliz is already in Sevilla after doing the medical checkups and the move would not include a buy option.
The Argentine striker didn’t have much playing time with Tottenham last year and at the end of December, suffered a knee injury. With Heung-min Son playing in the Asian Cup, it would have been a good moment for Véliz to show what he is capable of doing on the pitch. Unluckily, he got injured and the English club purchased another striker, Timo Werner.
The former Rosario Central player will join another team full of Argentinians: In Tottenham, he had Giovanni Lo Celso and Cristian Romero as teammates and in Sevilla he will share the squad with Marcos Acuña, Lucas Ocampos and Federico Gattoni.
The Spanish club is currently in the 16th position in La Liga standings, only one point away from the relegation positions.
