Serie A giant AC Milan are reportedly set their target to the Argentine attacking midfielder Erik Lamela and they are currently preparing a bid for him which will be tabled in next January. They are reportedly plotting to spend £22 million in next January for this winger and think that it would be enough to land this Argentine youngster. 24 years old Lamela who almost spent two consecutive seasons before with another Italian side Roma and from there he arrived at the White Hart Lane in 30th August, 2013 for £25.8 million along with £4.2 million extra which was considered as bonus. Lamela is completely familiar with the Italian environment and made almost 62 Serie A appearances with Roma and scored 19 league goals so far for them.
However, the summer transfer window slam shut in couple of months ago but also Milan has not finished their shopping yet. They are still seeking a midfielder to bolster that position. They bought three players in last transfer season where a midfielder was among them. But that was not enough for San Siro coach Vincenzo Montella and he started to find another winger and finally fixed his eyes to the Argentine Lamela. Though, he has to wait to table his bid till next transfer window which will start again in upcoming January. Besides, United’s Memphis Depay and Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas are also on the radar of the Italian giant though his first choice is Argentine winger.
Winger Lamela who has started Premier League season 2016/17 with the Spurs and already made six league appearances and netted once in EPL this season. He seems happy with the English side also as one of the key player in this team. Besides, Spurs spent almost £30 million to bring him London and probably not wanted to sell him so cheaply unless they will hear a large offer. But, Italian side would not give more than £22 million reportedly which might not be pleased by the Spurs.
This Argentine star winger still has a couple of years contract left with Tottenham which will valid till 2020. So, he is not in hurry to move to another yet and also he has a chance to make extension deal with them too. After arriving at the White Hart Lane, he was given number #11 shirt and almost played his highest appearances with them as well. He started his professional career with River Plate in 2009 after finishing his youth training with them too. So, Tottenham Hotspur is his 3rd club. He started to play with the Argentina national team since 2011 and yet to make 23 international appearances with them and scored thrice international goals.
