The recent unsurprising news that Erik Lamela has told friends he has played his last game for Spurs means stories of Inter Milan interest and interest from Roma and other Italian clubs will grow.
Right from the start he had the wrong mental attitude, a skilful player who worked hard on the pitch but really struggled to adapt his game. His mental weaknesses meant it was two years before we saw anything from him and we have only really had a seasons worth of decent football from him before a minor hip injury meant his weak mind took over once again.
At the moment he is in Argentina and Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport suggest that Inter Milan are ready to pounce. There are reports of a row between Lamela and the club which the Italians feel means they will be able to get the winger ion the cheap.
Lamela is under contract at Tottenham until 2018, which means a reduced fee with just a season remaining so the Italian newspaper suggest he could be bought for as little as £8.66 million (€10m - AUS$14.26m - US$10.86m).
Mauricio Pochettino has already been looking for replacements in a problem area fort Spurs.
