Inter Miami is set to sign Alejandro Pozuelo as a Designated Player this transfer window. It has been reported that Pozuelo already accepted the terms and is expected to travel to Miami soon to finalize the agreement.
Alejandro Pozuelo was born in Seville, Spain. Pozuelo spent his youth career at his local club Real Betis. He made his senior debut with the B team, spending two seasons in Segunda División B. On October 2, 2011, Pozuelo participated in the second half of the main team’s 0-1 La Liga home loss to Levante UD. In a 2-0 victory over Atlético Madrid on December 18, he not only scored the Verdiblancos’ first league goal but also received a red card.
Pozuelo was given a promotion to the first team at Betis for the 2012–13 season. He participated in 13 games across all competitions and scored just once, in a 5-3 away win over Athletic Bilbao.
On 2 July 2013, Pozuelo joined Swansea City on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee. On July 24, 2014, Pozuelo rejoined Rayo Vallecano in his nation’s top division for an undisclosed amount. On September 14, he made his debut competitive appearance as a 61st-minute substitute in a 2-3 home loss to Elche CF.
Pozuelo relocated abroad once more on August 31, 2015, when he agreed to a two-year contract with K.R.C. Genk of Belgium’s First Division A. In 2016–17, he scored six goals, which helped his team finish seventh overall in the regular season.
In order to fill the void left by the recent departures of Sebastian Giovinco and compatriot Victor Vázquez in the creative midfield position, Pozuelo signed with Major League Soccer team Toronto FC as a designated player on March 4, 2019. He also received the number 10 jersey that had previously belonged to the Italian. Late that month, in a 4-0 victory over New York City FC at home, he made his professional debut. He assisted teammate Jozy Altidore on the game’s first goal and added two more goals of his own.
