Tottenham Sign Erik Lamela From AS Roma

Tottenham Hotspur have signed midfielder Erik Lamela from AS Roma.

Lamela, who can play either as a striker or an attacking midfielder – much in the mold of Gareth Bale — is a 21-year-old playmaker who began his career at River Plate where he made 40 appearances before joining AS Roma in 2011. In Italy, Lamela made a total of 67 appearances in all competitions and scored 21 goals.

Born in Argentina, Lamela has been capped four times by Argentina at under-20 level, and three times at the senior level after making his international debut against Paraguay in May, 2011.

Tottenham reportedly paid £25million for Erik Lamela.

  1. It doesn't smash the club record fee. They just paid 26 million pounds for Soldado.

    Do you even bother to fact check when you write stories?

    1. Sky reports the fee is "around £30m"


  2. Ahh Spurs trying to buy a Champions league spot ! LOL Lamela a very good pick up but I think Capoue will be the best pick up for them.

    1. yet we make a profit from the transfer window? Big Difference in just spending 100 million from the check book than investing the money back in the team after maximizing a transfer value

  3. Love this signing. Spurs are positioning themselves to make a legit run at the Pem title now that United, City, and Chelsea have shown their shortcomings.
