Erik Lamela has undergone surgery on his right shoulder after picking up an injury in training, Sevilla have now confirmed.
Lamela departed Tottenham this summer following eight seasons in North London.
The Argentine was a fantastic servant for Spurs and always gave his all when he got minutes under the belt.
However, there was a feeling that he never quite managed to live up to his potential at Tottenham, partly due to his injury woes which hampered his ability to appear consistently for the Premier League outfit.
The 29-year-old has been in fantastic form since his move to Spain over the summer.
The Argentine international was playing a key part under Julen Lopetegui, having scored four goals in 13 La Liga appearances so far.
However, unfortunately, the former Spurs man has succumbed to injury once again.
Sevilla have revealed that Lamela will undergo surgery on his right shoulder after picking up an injury in training with the first team.
The attacking midfielder is expected to be out of action for four months.

It is a shame that Lamela now faces four months on the sidelines after the terrific start he had to his Sevilla career.
The fact that it is a shoulder injury rather than his calf or groin, which he had issues with at Spurs, is even more disappointing.
Hopefully, the 29-year-old could bounce back from this setback and prove his worth to the La Liga club.
