Erik Lamela intends to stay Tottenham Hotspur amid rumours of a summer exit.
That’s according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who was speaking on the latest Here We Go podcast.
In February, Football Insider reported that Spurs were ready to let Lamela leave in the summer.
Lamela’s limited Spurs prospects
Lamela has only a year remaining on his contract and is struggling for starts under Jose Mourinho.
He has only made five in the Premier League this season.
Mourinho handed Lamela a huge opportunity in last weekend’s North London derby and after scoring an extraordinary ‘rabona’ goal, the Argentine was sent off for two bookable offences.
Most of his involvement has come in the Europa League and in the domestic cups.
He has three goals and one assist across 12 appearances in those competitions.
The 29-year-old has been with Spurs for nearly eight years now.
These Spurs slammed Lamela after hearing the news
“The week that keeps on giving!”
“Of course he does, robbing a living at Tottenham”
“Should have got rid of him 7 year ago”
“GET. HIM. OUT. OF. MY. CLUB!”
