Newcastle United, Tottenham make approach for Carlos Alcaraz

Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly asked Southampton for information about 21-year-old Argentine midfielder Carlos Alcaraz.

According to Italian journalist Mirko Di Natale, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Carlos Alcaraz from Southampton in the summer transfer window. The two Premier League clubs have submitted their enquiries for the 21-year-old midfielder.

Carlos Alcaraz and his Southampton stint so far

Carlos Alcaraz has been a solid performer for Southampton since arriving from Racing Club in January 2023. A native of La Plata, he spent his formative years in his homeland before graduating from the youth division at Racing Club a few years ago. However, his stock has risen since joining the Saints 18 months ago.

The Argentine midfielder was a standout performer in the second half of the 2022/23 season but could not stop Southampton from suffering relegation from the Premier League. Alcaraz enjoyed a solid first half of the 2023/24 campaign before joining Juventus on loan in the winter transfer window.

However, the 21-year-old midfield prospect could not break his scoring duck in his 12 outings for the Bianconeri, managing only one assist. Alcaraz has returned to Southampton after his loan spell ended. A move across the Premier League might be on the cards, with Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur submitting enquiries to secure his services.

Move across the Premier League on the cards?

Newcastle United’s interest in Carlos Alcaraz is understandable. The Magpies are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of Sean Longstaff. The Southampton midfielder has thus emerged as a viable target for Newcastle United.

As for Tottenham, they are also keen on signing a midfielder in the summer transfer window. Recent reports have linked the North London club with midfielders like Weston McKennie. However, Alcaraz is also an option worth considering, with Tottenham initiating the move to sign the 21-year-old Argentine midfielder in the summer transfer window.

It will be interesting to see if Alcaraz is ready to end his short association with Southampton by embarking on a new adventure in the summer transfer window. Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are vying for his signature, hoping to bolster their midfield departments in the coming weeks.
