The end of the international break has seen a number of rumours linking Tottenham with Argentine international Ezequiel Lavezzi. The 28 year old is said to have fallen down the pecking order at PSG following the arrival at the club of Edison Cavani and that he could be available in the January transfer window for the relative bargain price of £15m.

Firstly, that may not be the case with some reports suggesting that the player still has a future in French football. Beyond that, there are so many comparisons with Erik Lamela that it seems a pointless quest, assuming there is any substance at all to the rumours.

OK so they’re both Argentinean, both play either on the wing or as a main striker and have similar scoring records at club and international level. Lavezzi is clearly the more experienced man and had he been available prior to Lamela’s arrival he may well have been the better option.

There are differences between their styles of play but with Erik already at the club, does this link really add up or is it more paper talk during a slow international break?

  1. Spurs are nowhere near sorting out roles for the M7. So yet more players in January needs extremely careful thought, and probably limited to 1 or maybe 2 at most. Come next summer we should know more about the successes and failures of recent signings. Some selling and buying of replacements might be appropriate then.

  2. we need perfect bale replacement and more attaking player LAVEZZI NEED 4-4-2 AND 4-2-3-1 SYSTEAM WE USE HIM CF OR LW WE ALSO SEARCH FOR TRANSFER BUSSINESS ANOTHER LB, CM, CAM, ST, RB, LW TO REPLACE (NAUGHTON, HOLTBY, SANDRO, SIGURDDSON, ADABAYER TO SELL & CHANDLI (ON LOAN))

    • You , my friend, are an idiot. Why would we sell holtby, who has been playing really well when given the chance, Sandro, who has the ability to own a game, and Sigurdsson, who has been scoring well of late?

  3. SPURES IN 4-2-3-1 LLORIS – WALKER – VER – CHIRICHES – FABIO CONTRAO – PAULINHO – RADJA NAINGGLON – LAMELA – TOWNSED – LAVEZZI – SOLDADO SUB- FRIEDEL , RICHARDS , CAPOUE, DEMBLELE, DEFOE, ERIKSON, HONDA

  4. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you ought to publish more about this subject matter,
    it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!
