The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern tonight are discussing the rumours regarding their club potentially selling Erik Lamela.
Reports claim that Inter Milan have renewed their interest in Tottenham winger, Erik Lamela.
A hip injury last season saw Lamela make only 14 appearances in all competitions and it is looking like he won’t be fit to start the new season either.
Despite this, Tottenham had a fantastic season and managed a second-place finish behind their rivals Chelsea.
Our landlord thinks it would be a risk by Mauricio Pochettino to sell Lamela because when he is fit, he can be a handy player to have in your side.
The word ‘when’ is crucial here though, if Lamela can’t return from his injury in due time, then Spurs will be losing out on about £15 million that could be reinvested elsewhere in the squad.
It is unlikely that Tottenham will put Lamela back into the first team once he is fit again, given how well Son Heung-Min has played in his place, but Lamela can still be a useful squad player.
It seems like the majority of Tottenham’s fans here in the Tavern want the Argentinian to stay at the club, but whether Pochettino agrees is another question completely.
Only time will tell whether keeping or selling the player would be the right move for Spurs, it is all dependant on whether he can stay fit.
