Lamela to join Marseille on loan?

Tottenham flop Erik Lamela looks like he could be set to leave White Hart Lane on loan by joining French outfit Olympique Marseille.

That is what is being currently reported by an Italian football journalist with his ear to the ground.  The French transfer window closes at 11pm tonight so there’s only a couple of hours to run until we know if we was right.

Lamela has failed to live up to his billing after the £30million move from AS Roma and all we have had to show for the money is one Europa League rabona.

Apparently the deal will see Lamela link up with Marseille, who will then have the option to buy the 23-year-old at the end of the campaign at what will be a snip of the price of what we shelled out for him.

Six goals in 59 appearances is simply not good enough.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If the rumor are true I believe we have sold ourselves short. Our tactical rigidity held back both Soldado (2 goals in 2 games since leaving) and Lamela. Lamela needed to be free to roam the midfield and not be forced to play in a right wing role which made him so predictable, what about Europa and Cup competitions surely now the youth must be allowed to play a bigger part.
