Although Argentine winger Lamela only just joined Tottenham this season, he has struggled to settle in England after emerging as a top talent in Serie A for his previous club Roma. Now looking likely to make a quick exit from White Hart Lane, the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan have shown an interest in taking the 21-year-old back to Italy, though Spurs are now seemingly working on a potential deal with Milan.
The north London outfit are long-time admirers of El Shaarawy, who has struggled with injuries this season which have seen him fall out of favour at the San Siro, leading Spurs to weigh up a renewed bid for him this summer. It remains to be seen if the two clubs and players can agree to this exchange, but a Tottenham insider revealed that the details of the deal have been discussed by leading figures at the club, Franco Baldini and Daniel Levy.
It’s no secret that Lamela hasn’t settled here and if we can do this deal that might be the best for everyone, a club source explained. “El Shaarawy is a player we like and he could strengthen an important area for us and give us a few more goals. “
