Roma are not prepared to let Lemela leave until they have secured a replacement and so Spurs are having to wait until they announce the signing and get the pacey wide man in their squad.
The Argentinean international is seen as a natural replacement for the departing Gareth Bale who is set to complete his move to Real Madrid any day now.
Tottenham have agreed a £25million deal to sign Lamela which will take their summer spending above £80million and so cancelling out the sale of Bale.
Tottenham’s wage bill has massively increased this summer too and so a number of squad players may be shown the exit door with Jermain Defoe and Benoit Assou Ekotto expected to be the first out.
