Erik Lamela has confessed that a move back to Italy from Spurs in the future appeals to him, although he’s happy at the club for now.
The Argentine became the Londoners’ record signing in the summer of 2013 when the Lilywhites paid Roma a fee of close to £30m for his services.
Such a sum led many fans to believe that Lamela was the man to fill the void left by Gareth Bale – who left in the same transfer window – but his spell at White Hart Lane has been largely underwhelming.
However, after an injury hit debut campaign and a peripheral 2014/15, the ex-River Plate man has come good this term, winning a regular spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s XI.
But, when quizzed on a potential return to Serie A, Lamela admitted that he is open to the idea in the future:
“I think there hasn’t been interest and I’ve always thought of Tottenham. Here they make me feel important.” He told Fox Sport (via the London Evening Standard).
“For the moment a move is difficult, but maybe in the future why not? Also to Roma.”
Lamela has netted four goals in 10 appearances so far this season.
