Lamela agents in Tottenham talks

The representatives of Roma forward Erik Lamela will speak with Tottenham on Tuesday about a possible move to the Premiership.

The London club are apparently ready to offer as much as €35m to the Italian side to secure the Argentine international’s signature.

Jose Lamela, the youngster’s father, and agent Pablo Sebbag are expected to meet former Roma director general Franco Baldini who now works for Spurs.

Tottenham, report the Corriere dello Sport, are prepared to offer the 21-year-old a four-year deal worth €4m a campaign.

Lamela, a left-sided attacker, joined the Italian outfit in 2011 from River Plate for around €17m.

He has scored 19 goals in 62 League games for the Giallorossi since his arrival – 15 of those came during the last campaign.

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini is also understood to be on his way to London.

Roma sold Pablo Daniel Osvaldo to Southampton for an initial €15.1m fee on Sunday evening.
