Tottenham Hotspur fans seem to have finally given up on Erik Lamela after the latest news surrounding his injury.
The Argentine missed the majority of last season due to a hip injury, and the club remained quiet with regards to his progress.
The 25-year-old suffered the injury in October and according to Sky Sports, it could be a full calendar year before he is back fighting fit.
Lamela underwent surgery in April, but it seems as though he will not be available for the start of the season.
The attacker even spent time at his former club Roma to seek medical treatment, but the wait continues.
Many fans are now frustrated with the situation and some are calling for the club to offload him this summer.
Hope we bin off Lamela, Nkoudou and Sissoko this summer. All dead weight.

Lamela out for a year for the second time (more or less) should really try get rid. We didn't exactly miss him last season.

Lamela to miss start of the season. Doesn't that just fill you with joy? Why not just get rid?

Can we please just get rid of Lamela. He's done absolute nothing apart from "work hard". I can work hard on a football pitch for 50k a week

Lamela's injury means he's not gonna be back til Christmas which basically rules him out of a move anywhere until next summer. Waster!

#Lamela. October. Hope we've got a good insurance policy. And possibly a receipt. This looks shadier by the day if you ask me. Hey ho

No Lamela till October? Very bad he is out during a crucial part of his career.

Lamela joined the North London outfit from the Italian club in 2013, and he arrived as the club’s most expensive player in history at around £30m.
Since then, he has struggled to find momentum and this latest injury blow has forced his Spurs career to a halt.
