Tottenham’s record signing set to move away from White Hart Lane

LamelaSome fairly muted and disgruntled fans of Tottenham Hotspur are sharing some peanuts and having one or two pints today, as they discuss the latest rumours about their north London club.

And off the back of these latest rumours some of them aren’t very happy – the Metro are reporting that their record signing, Argentina International Erik Lamela could be on his way out of the club heading for Portuguese side Porto.

The 23-year old cost Spurs £30 million, and while by most fans evaluations he has not exactly justify this price tag during his time in England so far, seeing him go for a rumoured fee of £5.3 million would be a big blow financially.

For many of the fans in the Transfer Tavern it would also be seen as a waste to have not given the forward another season to crack the premier league.

Our landlord echoed this feeling with his opinion, “I don’t know when the big clubs will learn, players need more time – especially if they are foreign. Give Lamela another season and he would be quality!”

Tottenham fans what do you think of this one? Would you be angry if Lamela leaves? Has he been a flop? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
