Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with interest at the latest claim from The Sun, who seem to think Erik Lamela is set to stay in North London.
As one of our regulars notes over a pint, that means that despite being an injury prone flop last season, the Argentine star will be handed another chance before being shipped back off to Serie A.
The majority of our Spurs fans in the tavern agree that this is a good idea and seem to think that it will be a make or break season for Spurs, Lamela and their new manager.
Under Tim Sherwood, it became abundantly clear that Lamela would not be playing much football and Sherwood himself was pretty vocal about his doubts when it came to the player.
We think that for a player who needs the confidence of his manager while struggling to settle in England, that is not exactly the way to get the best out of him!
Spurs fans. Do you think big money signing Lamela should be given another chance to impress at the club or should you have taken a loss on him just to show him the door? Let us know your thoughts below.
