Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Three Serie A clubs looking at £30m Spurs star

A round up of key transfer stories about Tottenham Hotspur this week.

Erik Lamela is being scouted by three top Serie A sides according to reports.

The Mirror has suggested Napoli, Inter Milan and Juventus are all toying with the idea of big bids to try and tempt the Argentine back to Italy.

Lamela only moved to Tottenham in a £30 million deal from Serie A giants Roma last summer.

Tottenham have been handed a blow in their long term pursuit of Southampton defender Luke Shaw.

The Saints have made it clear that the left-back will not be sold during the January transfer window as speculation continues over his future.

“It is a very clear situation. The player wants to stay, the club is not willing to sell,” said Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs have been dealt another blow with reports that Barcelona defender Marc Bartra is closing on a new contract at the club.

Tottenham are one of the sides reportedly considering giving the centre back a way out of the Nou Camp but he appears ready to pledge his future to the Spanish giants.

Bartra is expected to sign a new five-year deal with Barcelona before the end of the month.
