Tottenham round-up: Lamela to stay, updates on future of six other players

WH Lane

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep hold of Erik Lamela, according to a report in the Daily Mirror, but four other players that joined at the same time as the Argentine back in the summer of 2013 are set to be offloaded.

Pochettino believes there is a future for Lamela at the club, and despite interest from Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, it seems he will be staying put in North London for at least a little while longer.

Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Vlad Chiriches and Etienne Capoue are all set to leave, however, and there will be a net budget of £30 million for Pochettino to build a side from - and he is reportedly after a central defender, central midfielder and a new striker.

Danny Rose is said to command a price-tag of £15 million and could be sold if that is met, while the Mirror's report also says Spurs may struggle to hold on to Hugo Lloris if either Manchester United or Paris Saint Germain come in with a £25 million bid.

One player that has been linked with a possible incoming at Spurs for much of this season is Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin, with the Daily Mail reporting that he has stalled on talks regarding a new contract.

With two years left to run on the Frenchman's current deal, the report states that Southampton are reluctant to let that agreement run down, and after missing out on him last summer, Spurs are said to be preparing a fresh bid.
