According to a report by The Athletic, should Spurs and Dele Alli part ways in January, Jose Mourinho may want to add another attacker to his ranks. The report has tipped teenage sensation Gabriel Veron as a possible replacement for the Englishman.
Veron, who is gaining European ‘admirers‘ with his performances for Palmeiras on the South American continent, is currently touted as one of the most promising young talents in world football.
Alli is now being heavily touted with a move away, as this report claims inside sources are tipping him to move on – with Mourinho potentially wanting to find a replacement in January if that departure does come to fruition.
Veron an exciting option for Spurs
Indeed, as per this update, a move for the 18-year-old could be something Spurs pursue depending on developments around Alli, with a recent report detailing just how promising the attacker could become.
Brazil Under-17 coach Guilherme Della lauded him a ‘master‘, meanwhile Palmeiras Under-17 coach Artur Itiro knows his game inside and out.
Transfer Tavern take
Despite this being a heavy investment for a rising star, unproven in Europe’s toughest leagues, his potential and high ceiling tout the fee as a worthy price to pay.
Whether or not Tottenham do make a January move to replace Alli, depending on his future, remains to be seen – but Veron has emerged as an option for Spurs as the winter window looms.
