Exclusive: Paul Stewart says now was right time for Lamela to leave Tottenham

Exclusive: Paul Stewart says now was right time for Lamela to leave Tottenham -Tottenham Hotspur News

Paul Stewart thinks that now is the perfect time for Erik Lamela to end his eight-year affiliation with Tottenham.

Lamela, who’s contract in north London expired next summer, has joined Sevilla in a permanent deal, with highly-rated young winger Bryan Gil coming the other way to link with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

Would Lacroix be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Lamela’s move to La Liga brings down an eight-year reign for the Argentine following his move from Roma in 2013 which was a club-record at the time.

His first campaign was overshadowed by a long-term back problem, which saw him miss the final four months of the season.

Only true Spurs fans will get 100% in this impossible 2020/2021 season quiz...who was Daniel Levy's first summer signing?

That quickly became a reoccurring theme during Lamela’s time at the club. He missed 133 matches in total, including 57 in a row when he spent 13 months on the sidelines with a hip injury.

And whilst his commitment and work-rate won’t be forgotten in in north London, his goal and assist return wasn’t what many were expecting when he came on the back of a scintillating season in the Italian capital.

Stewart exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:

“Lamela, for me, is too inconsistent. He looks like a world beater sometimes, and you feel like you’re carrying him other times. I genuinely believe that it’s the right time for him to move on.”
