Our Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to bring in a similar quality of midfielder should their Pochettino opt to axe Erik Lamela from his long-term plans in Spurs’ new stadium this summer.
Erik Lamela has been linked with a new contract, after impressive displays in his comeback from having a year out following a hip injury.
However, while he would be sorely missed at Spurs and our regulars think that Mauricio Pochettino can find a worthy replacement. Indeed, that was an unthinkable notion given the last few months, though things change quickly in football. Still, the Argentine would be a welcome addition to any top European club and should Pochettino decide to cut all ties, then there would be a plethora of clubs just waiting to snap Daniel Levy’s hand off for the winger.
Recently, Spurs have found themselves in the top-four once again, thanks to Chelsea’s poor form since the turn of the year and their constant progression looks to be continuing. Still, if they harbour any ambition to kick on next season, then a top quality midfielder has to be high on the priority list in the summer, should he depart.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at TWO potential stars to replace Lamela, should he move…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
