As soon as Erik Lamela comes back into the Spurs squad, the speculation over his future and a possible move back to Serie A will start up one again. The 22 year old is said to have returned to training after a long term back injury that has kept him out of the side since the end of 2013 even though there is no official word from the club as yet.
The silence over Lamela is similar to that surrounding Alan Hutton a few years’ back and while there may be nothing sinister in it, it could conceivably be another clue to suggest that the Argentinean will be out of the White Hart Lane door after the World Cup.
In the meantime however, assuming he doesn’t feature in Thursday’s Europa League tie with Benfica, Erik Lamela has eight games left to prove he has a future at Spurs under either the current or an incoming coach. What do you think the outcome will be?
