Lamela could return to action next month, Tottenham Hotspur fans react

Tottenham Hotspur have been without Erik Lamela for almost a year due to injury, but it seems that the wait is almost over.

Sky Sports reported that the Argentine could make his comeback after the international break in October.

The 25-year-old has been on the sidelines with a hip injury that has troubled him since last year.

Lamela underwent surgery on both hips at the end of the 2016-17 season and has slowly begun his return to fitness by taking part in training sessions.

Sky Sports have speculated that the attack-minded player could be aiming to take to the pitch in Spurs’ matches that follow the international break.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are down to face Bournemouth and Liverpool in the Premier League, as well as Real Madrid in the group phase of the Champions League.

Fans have been frustrated by Lamela’s lengthy absence, but hearing that he could potentially be back in the squad from mid-October has got the supporters excited.
