Lamela talks advanced?
When the story of a potential loan deal involving Erik Lamela first surfaced, we asked whether it made sense to send away our record signing this early in his White Hart Lane career. The reaction was mixed but now we are in January and the stories are back.
Some are even suggesting that the proposal is at an advanced stage with suggestions that the player’s agent has travelled to Milan in order to tie up a temporary move for the player with Inter, who have struggled this season and are looking for a boost that would take them back into Champions League contention.
Erik’s issues at Spurs have been well documented by the press and his prospects haven’t yet turned under Tim Sherwood, although injury has hampered any potential progress this month. His pressing need as an individual is getting into Argentina’s squad for the 2014 World Cup and with game time a priority, could we see this deal come to fruition before the end of the month?
