Spurs wary over Euro giants interest in Pochettino favourite, huge scouting mission underway


Indicative of the meteoric rise of Spurs under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino, the fans in the Transfer Tavern have entirely changed their tune about Erik Lamela. 

Widely regarded as a flop upon his £30m arrival from Roma in 2013, the Argentine has come on leaps and bounds under his compatriot at White Hart Lane and developed into a firm fans’ favourite in North London.

So, imagine the discontent amongst the Spurs supporting locals when reports from Gazzetta World claimed Inter Milan were keeping close tabs on him.

After a number of seasons of mediocrity, the Nerazzurri have been the subject of a colossal Chinese takeover and manager Roberto Mancini has serious cash to splash.

Inter vice-president and club legend Javier Zanetti is believed to be in the United States scouting the 24-year old during his Copa America duty with Argentina.

The Serie A giants have also been linked with a move for Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, who worked with Mancini during his spell at the Etihad of course.

Is Lamela far too crucial to Spurs these days to be sold?
