Rumour Mill: Inter To Bid For Lamela?

According to Spanish daily Marca, Italian club Inter Milan are preparing a £13.4 million bid for injured Argentine Erik Lamela.

Erik Lamela signed for Spurs from Roma in 2013 as one of the ‘Bale’ seven, of which now only Lamela and Eriksen still remain at the club, for what was at the time, a record transfer fee for Tottenham of £30 million.

However, the 25 year old winger has been out of action since October last season and still faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines, as the forward continues to recover from a hip injury.

Though the attacker was initially expected to return in Winter, Lamela may yet leave the club, if reports in Spain are to be believed, with Marca suggesting that the Argentinian would be open to a move back to Italy.

According to the report, Inter Milan are readying a £13.4 million bid for the winger, yet Spurs will try to raise that amount to £16 million in an attempt to cut their losses on the 25 year old.

I find it very hard to believe that Spurs would simply sell Lamela after all this time for such a low fee. I’m not convinced by these reports, but what about you? Do you think we should consider selling Lamela?



Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Why bother building a new stadium?According to the stupid people in the media all our players are being sold.Try and write something with an ounce of substance behind it.Pathetic copycat journalism.Try and be original for Pete’s sake.

  2. Spurs would be crazy to sell Lamela. We have spent so much money and time on his recovery and with his talent I am sure he will be a top player for Spurs. To sell him at a huge loss now makes no sense.

    • I disagree sell him and buy mahrez. Has Lamela ever had an outstanding game? He loses the ball too easily and his distribution is poor. He is overrated and has been a big disappointment. Go get
      Mahrez before somebody else does.
