‘worth taking a gamble on’: Tottenham urged to make their move for 21-year-old midfielder

By Saikat -

John Wenham wants Tottenham to sign Southampton midfielder Carlos Alcaraz this summer.

The North London club have been linked with the Argentine midfielder for a while now. Spurs have reportedly been in talks with Southampton as both clubs look to agree on a swap deal involving Joe Rodon and Carlos Alcaraz.

John Wenham has now urged Tottenham to complete the signing. The owner of the Spurs podcast Lilywhite Rose feels that the 21-year-old midfielder would be a quality addition for the North London club and his versatility will be an added bonus.

While talking to Tottenham News, Wenham said: “When Southampton were last in the Premier League, I remember thinking what an exciting player Alcaraz was,”

“He can play in multiple positions across the midfield, and at the age of 21, I therefore think he is worth taking a gamble on.

“I don’t think Southampton are actively trying to get rid of him, I think he’s made it clear he wants to move to a bigger club.

“As a result, he would surely welcome a move to Tottenham, and I would be very much up for Tottenham signing him.”

After coming up the ranks at Racing Club, Alcaraz made the move to Southampton in the winter of 2023. He had an impressive start to life in England but the short loan spell at Juventus towards the end of last season didn’t really go according to plan.

Although the Saints are back in the Premier League, the player wants to join a bigger club ahead of next season and Tottenham could be the ideal destination for him. The 21-year-old might not have lit up the world with his performances in the recent past but he has the potential.

He will only get better with coaching and experience. Alcaraz would be a long-term investment for Tottenham and it remains to be seen whether they can get the deal done.
