Tottenham are weighing up whether to let Alejo Veliz join Sevilla on loan, according to reports. The striker’s exit could pave the way for technical director Johan Lange to finish the January transfer window in style, with Dominic Solanke and Lucas Bergvall both firmly on Spurs’ radar.

Veliz has not started a single Premier League game since signing from Rosario Central in the summer. The 20-year-old has still managed to bag himself a goal in just 45 minutes of action, and Sevilla are keen to offer him regular football.
According to The Athletic, Spurs will decide on deadline day whether to sanction the youngster’s exit. Losing Veliz would free up space in Ange Postecoglou’s squad for another striker, and the north Londoners are rumoured to be eyeing up Solanke.
Rated at £50million by Bournemouth, the England international has been in sparkling form this season, with only Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah scoring more goals in the top flight.

Tottenham have already welcomed Timo Werner this month, but early indications suggest the German will be used primarily out wide, while Solanke would provide a new option through the middle.
The stars seem to be aligning for Spurs as, alongside Veliz’s possible exit, Bournemouth have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Getafe striker Enes Unal. The Turkish international’s arrival may convince the Cherries to let go of Solanke if his asking price is met.
Tottenham to find out ‘in days’ if Bergvall has picked them or Barcelona
With Tottenham weighing up whether to green-light what’s likely to be their final January outgoing, Lange and his team of recruitment specialists may soon have the freedom of deadline day to pursue new signings.
Along with Solanke, the Lilywhites are reportedly chasing Bergvall, with a bid submitted to land the Swedish teenager. Barcelona were expected to snap up Bergvall before the deadline but sporting director Deco has ruled out further signings.

The 17-year-old is already a senior international and a regular starter with Djurgardens. It could take a bid of £17m to get the deal done, meaning Spurs may splash £67m before the end of the day if they manage to land both Solanke and Bergvall.
