Tottenham to Sign Erik Lamela From AS Roma In £25million Deal

AS Roma has announced that the club has agreed to sell Argentina striker Erik Lamela to Tottenham Hotspur for a transfer fee of £25million with the possibility of the amount increasing to £30million with add-ons.

The Serie A club released an official statement today, which reads:

“AS Roma announces that it has signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur for the outright sale of the rights to the player Erik Lamela in [a deal worth] 30 million euros.

“The agreement also [includes add-on fees], up to a maximum of 5 million euro for bonuses tied to the achievement of part of the Players and the English Club of certain goals.”

    1. he’s not a striker, he’s a wing forward. Effectively the Bale replacement. He’ll play alongside Soldado, not rotating with Soldado.

      1. Um, huh? The article above says he is a striker and provided the numbers. How am I posting nonsense? It seems like a lot of money. You Spurs fans sure are touchy.

  1. I’ve been watching him in Serie. Already tremendously skilled for a 21 year old and huge upside for the future. Can’t wait to see him up front with Soldado and Townsend or Lennon. Gareth who?

  2. I admittedly don’t know a great deal about Lamela. With that said, one poster on a THFC posting site who is also an avid Roma supporter likened him to Bale before last year. A very good player with a very high ceiling.
