Tottenham Close in to Agree Playmaker Transfer Deal

Tottenham are Signing an Absolute Gem - Erik LamelaTottenham need to reinforce their attacking line this summer, an attacker and striker are much needed at White Hart Lane.

However, the latest news suggests that Spurs may sell their record signing Erik Lamela after the Argentine failed to shine in his two seasons with the North London side.

Lamela rose to fame with Serie A side Roma in 2012-2013 season where the playmaker scored 15 goals and provided 5 assists for Giallorossi in 33 league games.

After moving to Spurs, Villas Boas, Sherwood and even compatriot Pochettino has failed to get the best out of him.

He mostly spent time on the injury table during his first season with Tottenham. In the last campaign, Lamela scored 5 goals and provided 10 assists in 46 games for the club in all competitions.

The stats are not good enough for the record signing. Whether or not Spurs will keep him is another matter but for now Italian champions Juventus are keen on bringing Erik back to Italy.

According to reports, Tottenham are in talks with Juve who have sent their sporting director to agree deal for Erik Lamela. The player himself is looking for a move away from Spurs hence the exit seems close.

Tottenham splashed their record sum £30m to secure the services of Lamela and will be looking to get decent fee back if they are to sell the 23 year old Argentine.

    Won’t happen- Lamela still has great potential and Poch likes him. At this stage, Spurs could not recover their outlay for him. A bad Baldini buy, but at least he still has some potential. he should stay.

      When did he ever say he wants to leave Spurs? Everything he seems to have said, in the past few months, points to the opposite!

    I seems to be coming right with Potch . maybe we should give him a chance till january

    Hi Spurs Fan.
    I think Potch should play him in a different position. Instead of wing bring him in the midfield. He would look good in that area. He has decent pace to suite Spurs high line formation.

    Spurs would be utterly foollish to sell Lamela now. Lest we forget, the Argentine winger’s first season was marred by injury so, in that respect, we cannot judge him on any evidence. Last season, his momentum began to kick in, although his appearances in the first half of the campaign were limited. From January, Lamela’s performances and selection were on the rise. He had begun to play through balls, flick ons and helping to generally get teammates into better offensive positions. By the end of the campaign, opinion has changed towards Lamela. He was being viewed as an essential “nucleus” of the Spurs team.
    Next season is a “do or die” assault for Lamela, in that he must lay to rest any niggling doubts and show more of his true qualities. I have always supported Erik Lamela and continue to believe that his skills will inevitably shine through.
    I hope the rest of the Spurs staff will advise Daniel Levy, put the phone down, breathe slowly, stop hyperventilating at the sound of money and tell Juventus to “jog on!”
    Lamela stays put and that’s the end of it.
