Metro have a claim that has us looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they note that Erik Lamela is one of the top targets on Inter Milan’s wishlist this summer.
The player has failed to live up to his reputation since arriving at White Hart Lane, and now it seems that we could well be seeing him depart our shores for a return to Serie A.
As one of our punters notes, Tottenham Hotspur would probably make a loss on the player – or struggle to break even, as we think Inter would be reluctant to pay big money for a player who has so far looked a shadow of his former self.
The player himself is desperate to get out of England, and is keen to rebuild his career – and does not think that would happen under Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane.
North London side Spurs obviously spent big money trying to replace Gareth Bale, and the players they brought in have not exactly performed to the level we had hoped.
There seems to be a glimmer of hope for some of the new boys, but Lamela seems to be on his way to the exit door.
Is Lamela’s Tottenham career over before it even really got going? Let us know your thoughts below.
