£30m Tottenham Flop Offered Serie A Escape Route

Napoli ready to move for Spurs winger.

Check in to Argentina vs Bosnia and Herzegovina

Serie A side Napoli could be ready to offer Tottenham Hotspur flop Erik Lamela a return to Italy this summer after just one year in the Premier League, according to Fichajes.net.

The Argentine international has endured a highly disappointing time at White Hart Lane following his £30m move from Roma last summer, making just nine appearances in the league and scoring just one goal, which came in the Europa League.

Lamela had previously been regarded as one of the best young players in Serie A during his time at the Stadio Olimpico, and his good reputation in Italy means that he has been linked several times with a return in the last few months, with Juventus and Inter Milan also among his admirers.

However, it now seems that Napoli will be the leading contenders to rescue him from his difficult time at Tottenham, with Rafael Benitez keen to bring in new attacking players this summer.

With Lamela struggling to adapt to life in England, he could welcome a return to the Italian top flight, and would be joining a side on the up in Napoli, who finished 3rd in 2013/14 to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
