According to The Sun, Erik Lamela is pushing for a return to Italian football as soon as possible. Several reports in Italy and England are suggesting that Inter and, very surprisingly, Lazio will be the main clubs in the hunt for his services during this winter mercato.
The Argentinean international attacking midfielder only joined Tottenham Hotspur in August 2013 after his big money switch from city rivals Roma. The reported transfer fee was believed to be around 30 million Euros and he was considered high priority for the then manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Lamela, who is still only 21 years old, has not yet found his feet with life in London and the English Premier League. He has made only a handful of appearances for the North Londoners, and with the new Spurs coach Tim Sherwood replacing Villas-Boas the player has seen even less time on the pitch. Sherwood looks like he would be happy to see Lamela leave for either a good price or on loan with an option to buy deal.
Should Claudio Lotito sign Erik Lamela, it will surely bring up some serious tensions in the city of Rome.
