Erik Lamela believes that Tottenham can achieve something special in the upcoming campaign and has insisted that the players are ready for a big season.
The Argentine is currently one of the longest-serving members of the first-team squad, having arrived from Roma in the summer of 2013.
While he has been a great asset for the side whenever he has had a run of games in the starting line-up, injury problems have arguably prevented him from fulfiling his potential at the club thus far.
However, the 28-year-old has been part of some strong teams during his time at Spurs and has come very close to winning silverware on several occasions.
The attacking midfield has been involved in two cup finals (2015 League Cup and 2019 Champions League), another three semi-finals and was also a part of two failed title bids under Mauricio Pochettino.
Lamela admitted that he is desperate to win a trophy with Spurs and asserted that everything is in place for the club to achieve that objective next season.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I want to win this season with this Club. After so many years, and we were close so many times to achieve big things, I think now, this season has to be the season where we go for it.
“I know every player will do the maximum, and more, starting this week. We need to start really strong against Everton.
“I know we have a great team and the mentality of all the players is good. Me too. I have the mentality to help the team, and I will push my team-mates to try to do something big.
“If this season we can do it as a team, we can build something really important.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Some may argue that Lamela is one of several fringe players the club are ready to cash-in on this summer if they get the right offer but I personally do not see us letting him go this summer. It is clear that Jose is a fan of the Argentine, which is not surprising since the midfielder is one of the few players in the squad with the kind of ‘win at all costs’ mentality that the Spurs boss demands. Given the number of games we could potentially be involved in next season, the 28-year-old could be an important option for us if he stays fit.
