The name of Erik Lamela is never far away from the media’s attention and as he continues to struggle to make his mark at White Hart Lane, our record signing could be set for a short term deal away from the club.
With Aaron Lennon fit and Andre Villas-Boas preferring the likes of Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli on the flanks, the Argentine’s route to the first team seems blocked right now although Lamela should be given another chance to impress against Anzhi in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The press had even suggested a permanent deal but this morning, the stories hint at a loan arrangement to Atletico Madrid until the end of the season. Either way, this would be Erik’s third club inside one season so is it all a waste of time speculating?
Whatever happens, we can expect to see Erik Lamela take to the pitch in tomorrow night’s European clash but could that be the last time we see him in a Spurs shirt for a while?
