Alejo Veliz has been linked with a move to AC Milan over the last few days, but it looks like the Rossoneri will be beaten by Tottenham. The latter have made an official offer for the player, a report claims.
This season, the 19-year-old has found the back of the net eleven times for Rosario Central in 23 appearances. As a result, he has attracted the interest of several big clubs, including the likes of Milan and Tottenham.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Milan recently held talks with the player’s entourage to understand the situation. However, even though chief scout Geoffrey Moncada is fond of the player, the Rossoneri never went further than a simple inquiry.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have made an official offer of just under €15m, which is the value of the release clause. They are also willing to leave Veliz at Rosario on loan until December when the Argentinian season comes to an end.
Milan are thus set to miss out on the youngster, instead ready to focus on Lorenzo Colombo who could remain with the first team for the upcoming season.
