Report: Tottenham attacker set to return to former club on loan to buy deal in shock development
Erik Lamela has been offered to his former club Roma on an initial loan move with an option to buy, according to a report.
Italian outlet La Roma 24 claim that the Argentine striker Lamela was offered to the Italian club’s director of sport Monchi by an intermediary of the club.
It’s a shock development after the player had recently returned from a long-term injury and was seemingly reintegrating with the Tottenham first team.
The 25-year-old has made the squad for the last 11 straight Premier League games, but has only started two of them and is yet to score a goal.
Now it appears he could make a move back to Roma on an initial loan, with an option for the Italian club to buy back the player they sold in 2013.
Lamela joined Roma in the summer of 2013 for £27million and has made a total of 133 appearances for the north London club, scoring 19 goals and adding 33 assists.
The attacker has made 23 appearances for Argentina and scored three goals for his country.
