Dortmund reportedly keen on signing former Spurs record signing

Reports suggest that Borussia Dortmund are interested in procuring the signature of Tottenham’s Erik Lamela, before the transfer window shuts on August 31.

Tottenham signed Lamela for the then club record fee of £30m from Roma as part of the Super Seven bought with money from Gareth Bale’s sale.

Since this purchase, Lamela’s career has been plagued with injury, and he has perhaps lacked the goal tally once expected of such a high-profile signing.

However, despite the lack of goals, Lamela has remained a fan favourite, largely through the sheer work ethic he posses when chasing down the ball during games.

Stats showed that Tottenham did significantly better with the Argentine on the pitch than not last season, and Lamela actually managed to take part in 25 of Spurs’ 38 league games.

The winger has also just signed a new contract at the club, however this may be nothing more than retaining his value for when another club does come knocking for his services.

Dortmund’s season kicks off on Monday night with a DFB Cup clash against Greuther Furth, and manager Lucien Favre is said to be willing to do late business in the window.

The German side have already signed six new players this summer, but could Lamela be the latest addition to their roster?

Sours fans, should Lamela be sold? How much would you want for him?

    • Now why would anybody in their right mind want to sign SISSOKO? Dortmund are not that dumb as to want SISSOKO. He’s hopeless. Can’t successfully pass the ball more than a few feet, hopeless first touch, can’t shoot.

      Sissoko wont leave Spurs. He’s paid over £80k per week. He’d be a fool to leave as no other club would be mug enough to fork out £80k per week in wages for someone as crap as Sissoko

  1. No Premier League players will be sold for cash, all the clubs agreed to this as a group pact because of the window closing before the European Leagues, only loans will be outgoing from Premier League clubs. If a website is peddling transfer news involving a Premier League player for cash as fact then they are lying.
