Tottenham make offer for Roma starlet?

Erik Lamela - RomaTottenham Hotspur seem determined to land Roma’s talented young Argentine forward Erik Lamela, and are thought to have made an offer which both the club and the player might find hard to refuse.

Twenty-one-year-old Lamela is a key transfer objective for Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, and with club talisman Gareth Bale looking increasingly likely to make the move to Real Madrid, a transfer saga which has been mentioned once every 0.23 seconds this summer, according to research done by online betting firm Ladbrokes.

Villas-Boas is intent on using a large portion of the money made from his sale to lure the Argentine international to White Hart Lane.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Tottenham have made a concrete offer for the former River Plate star with a figure in the region of €35-40 million going to the Giallorossi and a contract on the table worth €4m a year for the player

With the Lupi having just sold striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo to Southampton for €18m, it remains to be seen if they are willing to let their star forward leave, but Spurs’ bid could be too good to turn down.

Lamela has managed 21 goals in 66 appearances for the Eternal City outfit since making the move from Argentine giants River Plate in 2011.
