Tottenham fans don’t want to lose Erik Lamela, after a report named the feisty winger as one of five major first team players that could leave the club.
According to The Daily Express (via Tribal Football), Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko and Toby Alderweireld and Lamela could all be sold this summer to raise funds for new signings.
Dembele is expected to leave as he enters the last 12 months of his contract, with the club, player and even most fans all feeling it is time to cash in.
Rose and Alderweireld tend to split opinion, with some fans furious they could lose two quality players and other fans feeling if they don’t want to be at the club it’s best to let them leave.
One player everyone seems to be agreeing on though is Lamela, who hardly made any impact last season due to injuries and personal reasons.
The popular Argentine started just seven Premier League games, scoring his only league goals of the season in the final day win over Leicester.
The 26 year-old has not always had the best end product, but he is extremely hard working, incredibly skilful, and of course has that wonderful knack of winding up opposition fans and players.
