Tottenham Hotspur set to lose forward to Italian giants Juventus?

lamela2Some news coming into the Transfer Tavern that the Spurs fans are not too sure what to make of….. With Roberto Soldado already departing the club this summer to return to La Liga, it looks like another attacking player is on his way out of White Hart Lane.

The Express are reporting that Italian side Juventus, who have been fiercely competing with Arsenal to the signature of Julian Draxler, are going to line up a bid for Spurs attacker Erik Lamela, should a deal for Draxler not come off.

With reported complications arising in any deal for Draxler, and Schalke notoriously intent on keeping their young starlet, the prospect of Lamela leaving Spurs is gathering traction.

The Argentina international joined Spurs from Roma for around £25 million two years ago now, and after struggling to get used to life in the Premier League many punters here in the Tavern expect Lamela to been keen on a return to Serie A.

Our resident Spurs fans here inside the Transfer Tavern feel that Lamela still has a lot to give, with all of them agreeing we haven’t seen the best from the winger just yet!

What do you think Spurs fans? Would you be disappointed to see Lamela leave the club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
