Argentine striker Alejo Veliz will not be heading to AC Milan this summer as he has been signed by Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur instead.
Tottenham officially announced the signing on Tuesday afternoon with a statement on their website which confirmed that Veliz has joined from Rosario Central and signed a contract until 2029.
Veliz joined Rosario at the Under-20 level and went on to make 62 top-flight appearances in Argentina. He scored 19 goals in that time, which led to attention from Europe.
Milan and Torino were the two sides showing the most interest in him. Milan were only likely to make a move if they saw Lorenzo Colombo leave the club, meaning they were not offering stiff competition.
Veliz has scored three goals in nine appearances at U20 level for Argentina and is thought to be a star for the future. He could have a lot of responsibility at Tottenham if Harry Kane departs.
