Tottenham fans haven’t seen much of Erik Lamela lately, and they probably won’t be seeing much more of him.

The divisive attacker has been out of action since last December with a hip injury. During his absence, Lamela has spent a considerable amount of time in Rome attempting to recover with his former club A.S. Roma.

On Tuesday, The Independent reported Lamela does not expect to play against for Spurs this season, fuelling speculation about an imminent exit.

The following day, Tottenham confirmed Lamela will undergo surgery on Saturday and is set to miss the remainder of the current campaign.

Lamela has split the Spurs fanbase since arriving for £30 million in the summer of 2013. He’ll have just two years left on his contract come the end of the season, and a return to Italy seems almost certain.



  1. Hope that is the case. Lamela took well to Poch’s play style and proved he wasn’t a wasted buy. The injury is a real shame and would hope he can fully recover.
