Steven Alzate has been hailed as an exciting talent as he aims to cap a momentous week in style.

Alzate could make his home debut for Albion when Tottenham visit the Amex today (12.30pm) after impressing in three away fixtures.

That would cap a stunning week for the 21-year-old, who signed a new deal yesterday taking him through until June, 2023.

Alzate, who was called up by Colombia this week, was kept out of the recent Carabao Cup tie versus Aston Villa at the Amex to protect him for league games.

He is a strong contender to face Spurs, despite the return to fitness of Solly March.

Alzate has been been selected by Colombia under-23s for two friendlies against Peru in Lima over the coming fortnight.

If he impresses, he could be retained for an Olympic qualifying tournament in January and February, which would rule him out of Albion fixtures.

Head coach Graham Potter said: “There are always things to improve and he has got a lot to carry on developing.

“The key thing for us is to try and ensure he is playing to his strengths as much as he can and as often as he can.

“He is an exciting player to watch. He can take the ball in tight situations and move away from players.

“Physically he can take the contact. He is dynamic in his movement. We just need to keep working with him and enjoying his performances at the moment.”

Potter introduced Alzate, Camden-born of Colombian parents, to the first-team squad after watching him in pre-season and has explained how he won senior players over.

He said: “Sometimes with younger players, they can have a session or two where you can see where the difference is. But every day at training the players players. Every day they see his quality and he grows in confidence as well.

“It is never straightforward but he went into the game against Newcastle and performed really well.

“The good thing for him is I think he can carry on improving and developing.

“It was a tough game against Chelsea but again he showed his adaptability, he showed his flexibility in terms of starting in one role and ending up in midfield.”

Potter said he had no concerns over the manner of Alzate’s first yellow card in the Premier League, which was shown for diving in the Chelsea game.

He added: “Sometimes it is an action where you anticipate something that doesn’t happen.

“I don’t see any signs daily that I worry about in that respect. He will learn quickly.”
