Tottenham fans urge the club to sell 25-year-old after reported development

By Amir Mir

Erik Lamela is unlikely to play for Tottenham again this season after being assessed by the club’s medical staff – and fans on Twitter have urged the club to sell him in the summer.

The Daily Mail reported on Tuesday morning that the 25-year-old has shown no sign of recovering from the hip injury that has sidelined him since October.

It is said that Lamela is training alone at Spurs’ Enfield headquarters with a scan revealing no issues.

As a result, the Spurs faithful have vented their anger towards the Argentine with some questioning his commitment to the club.

One fan pointed out that he has not played for the London-based club in five months but has still picked up over £1million in wages since then.

Furthermore, another supporter felt that Lamela reportedly showing a lack of commitment id clear evidence that he doesn’t want to be at the club next season.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is known for his shrewd business decisions and a supporter urged the tough negotiator to sell Lamela for the biggest fee possible.

Versatile midfielder Lamela joined Spurs during the summer of 2013 from Italian side Roma but during his time at the club, he has struggled for consistency and form.

He has scored eight goals in 85 Premier League appearances. By contrast, Dele Alli has netted 14 league goals in 28 games this term.

Overall, the White Hart Lane faithful were adamant that they wanted to see the back of Lamela after this latest development.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
