Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest report on Erik Lamela, which suggests that the North London club are ready to listen to offers of around £20 million for the Argentinian. 

According to Harry Pratt in the Daily Star (via Daily Hotspur), the Lilywhites could look to sell players to raise funds in the summer transfer window, with Lamela reportedly the most likely of Jose Mourinho’s wingers to leave. Spurs signed the 28-year-old from Roma in 2013 and in nearly seven years at the club, he has made 214 appearances for the Lilywhites, contributing 33 goals and 47 assists (per Transfermarkt).

How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

Injury problems have proved to be a big issue for the former Roma man throughout his time in the Premier League, most notably when a hip injury kept him out for 57 games between October 2016 and November 2017 (per Transfermarkt). So far this season, Lamela has made 17 appearances in the top-flight, averaging a disappointing 6.68 rating, having contributed just two goals and one assist (per WhoScored).

Would you be sad to see Lamela leave this summer?





Reaction from Spurs fans to the latest report on Lamela can be seen in the tweets below.

Despite his injury problems, it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans would be sad to see him leave.

Mourinho spoke earlier in the season about how Lamela impressed him with his willingness to play despite not being fully fit, suggesting that the Portuguese manager is perhaps keen to keep him around ahead of next season. These fans seem to agree that the 28-year-old always gives his all on the pitch.

However, not all fans agree, with several commenting that they feel the Argentinian international doesn’t offer enough to the first-team at Spurs.

Overall it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans would be sad to see Lamela leave this summer, although, with the 28-year-old currently valued at £14.4 million by Transfermarkt, it seems unlikely that the Lilywhites will receive anywhere near £20 million for him, especially in the current market.
