The Welshman’s proposed deal to switch to Spain could provide Spurs with over £80m to spend ahead of the new season.
Although Andre Villas-Boas will be far from happy to see his star man leave, he will benefit from the vast boost his transfer kitty will receive.
The Portuguese coach may use some of his new wealth to seal deals for both Lamela and Pjanic, who have been on his radar for some time.
Argentine winger Lamela has often been dubbed as one of the rising stars of world football, and has even drawn comparisons with compatriot Lionel Messi.
Although his career has stagnated slightly in Italy, the 21-year-old was impressive last season.
AVB is also attracted to Pjanic, a man he believes could add a great deal of creativity to his midfield ranks.
The Bosnian playmaker has also attracted attention from other Premier League sides, illustrating his ability.
The duo will likely cost around £44m, with Roma aware that they would find it difficult to convince the pair to stay at the Stadio Olimpico following another season without top level European football.
Could Miralem Pjanic and Erik Lamela replace Gareth Bale?
