The Serie A side are looking to bring in the Argentine in on a loan deal in January a move that may well tempt the former AS Roma man who has struggled for form since his summer move to White Hart Lane.
Lamela has started just two Premier League fixtures and has managed to notch up one goal in 14 appearances in all competitions since his £30m move to the North London club.
Andre Villas-Boas would appear to have little to gain from sending the youngster out on a temporary move but would perhaps be open to a permanent exit if the San Siro side were to mount a bid somewhere in the region of the club record fee Spurs invested in the 21 year old only a few months ago.
Atletico Madrid are also said to be keen on the adaptable attacker who can play either out side or in a central striking role.
Inter Milan have steadied their ship under new boss Walter Mazzarri, losing just one of their opening 15 Serie A fixtures, and could see Lamela as a long term replacement for fellow countryman Diego Milito.
