Stories linking Erik Lamela with a move away from White Hart Lane are set to persist throughout the summer but if a latest report is true, it gives us a real insight into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for the player and for the coming season.
The story, which seems to have originated in the Daily Mirror, claims that Spurs have rejected a firm offer for the Argentine and it goes on to hint that the player is very much part of Pochettino’s plans for the coming campaign.
That would suggest that Erik stays but it could also mean that Juve, along with other potential suitors such as Napoli and Roma, are falling some way below the asking price for the 22 year old. Tottenham paid a club record 30 million euros for Lamela in 2013 and Daniel Levy is unlikely to want to take too much of a hit, despite a shaky first season in England.
This one will continue but will Erik Lamela be part of the Spurs squad in 2014-15?
