Tottenham Hotspur’s promising forward Alejo Veliz is not getting any guaranteed playing time after joining Sevilla on loan.

“Tottenham are preparing a new loan plan for next season as Alejo Velis is not playing for Sevilla,” European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano reported on his social media account on March 31 (ET).

Born in 2003, the 6-foot-3 Argentine striker is considered to have great pace and is a player who uses his height to compete for aerial balls. His positioning and space awareness also make him an exciting prospect for Argentina.

A product of Rosario Central, an Argentine club known for producing Giovani Rosselso (Tottenham) and Angel Di Maria (Benfica), Bellis made his professional debut last season, scoring 11 goals and providing one assist in 23 league appearances.

Most notably, Bellis scored three goals in four games for Argentina’s U-20 national team at the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 in his home country last June. He scored on headers in all three group stage games. Although Argentina were eliminated by Nigeria in the round of 16, Bellis finished tied for fifth on the tournament’s goalscoring list with Lee Seung-won (Gangwon).

His performances attracted interest from a number of big European clubs. Even soccer legend Lionel Messi (Inter Miami), who will go down in soccer history beyond his native Argentina, is excited about the junior’s future.

“When I see him play, it reminds me of how Luis Suarez played,” Messi said in an interview, comparing him to the legendary Uruguayan striker, saying, “I’m very excited about his future in Argentina and I hope to have a conversation with him.”

A number of clubs entered the race to sign Bellis because of his potential, but it was Spurs who ultimately won the race. In August of last year, Spurs paid a €20 million transfer fee for Rosario and signed Bellis to a six-year contract until 2029.

As a big-money signing and a youngster just breaking into Europe, Bellerin was largely a substitute for the first half of the 2023-24 season behind Son Heung-min and Heucharlison.

Since joining Tottenham, he has made eight league appearances, playing a total of 42 minutes, but it wasn’t until the 18th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League against Brighton & Hove Albion, a 2-4 defeat last December, that he scored his first Premier League goal for Spurs.

After the winter transfer window opened and Tottenham signed German striker Timo Werner on loan from RB Leipzig, Bellis, whose position became more limited, moved to Spanish La Liga side Sevilla on loan before the transfer window closed in February.

Bellis was recovering from a knee injury at the time, and Spurs struggled 토토사이트 with his fitness and playing time. Ultimately, Tottenham loaned him out until the end of the season in exchange for Sevilla’s promise of guaranteed minutes.

However, as promised, Sevilla have not given Velis enough playing time despite his full recovery from a knee injury. Since joining Sevilla on loan, Bellis has only played 24 minutes in three La Liga matches, all as a second-half substitute.

More recently, he’s been left out of the Sevilla lineup entirely, having been benched or left out of the roster in three league games.

With no guarantee of playing time as promised, Tottenham have decided to bring Velis back at the end of the season. “Tottenham are preparing a new loan plan for next season as Bellis is not playing for Sevilla,” Romano explained.

“Tottenham will hold discussions in the coming months, and they want to guarantee his playing time next season,” he said, adding, “In any case, he will return from Sevilla.”
