Report: Levy still values 'for sale' Lamela highly, and wants £32m plus for Lloris

The case for Tottenham Hotspur selling Erik Lamela is not clear cut.

Tottenham Hotspur are not wholly committed to selling Erik Lamela, report The Telegraph.

The Mirror reported on Thursday that Spurs are willing to cut their losses on the Argentine, who has scored two league goals this season.

The Telegraph however report that chairman Daniel Levy is not so keen, and still rates Lamela highly.

Instead it is claimed they will listen to offers, but only accept a substantial fee. Lamela has featured in 29 games for Tottenham in the Premier League this season.

Another player they do not intend to let go cheaply is goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Levy is said to be only willing to accept a world record fee for a player in his position, which means above the £32 million Juventus paid for Gianluigi Buffon. Manchester United and Real Madrid are listed by ESPN as potential buyers

Lloris has been at Tottenham since 2012 when he signed from Lyon, and has established himself as one of the Premier League's best goalkeepers.

Lamela is only 23-years-old and has his best years ahead of him, the big question is whether Spurs are patient enough to see if he will produce for them, having only been at the club for two seasons.
