The Argentina international has only been at White Hart Lane since last summer, when Lamela originally joined the north London club from Serie A giants AS Roma for an initial transfer fee of £25.8 million, although that could eventually rise to as much as a club-record £30m depending on certain add ons.
However, in the short time that the wide man has been in the capital, Lamela has found it desperately hard to settle, and now it is understood that the palyer’s agent, Pablo Sabbag, has already started to enter into negotiations with Serie A outfit Inter Milan about the possibility of signing his client in January.
Meanwhile, Italian champions Juventus are also said to be interested in snapping the 21-year-old up, with the Bianconeri understood to even be prepared to offer long-term Spurs target Mirko Vucinic as part of any deal for the South American, a factor that could ultimately tip the balance in the Turin side’s favour.
