AC Milan reportedly contact Lamela's entourage regarding possible Tottenham transfer

The Tottenham Hotspur winger has now been linked with another Italian side.

According to a report from Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, AC Milan have contacted Erik Lamela’s representatives to discuss a possible move for the Tottenham Hotspur winger.

The claim comes in a story that suggests Inter Milan are closing in on a possible move for the Argentine international, with Di Marzio stating that while their city rivals have contacted Lamela’s entourage it is only an idea at this stage.

The news comes after Gazzetta dello Sport reported comments from Lamela’s father, where he confirmed he was in talks regarding a potential switch from Tottenham to Inter.

So could AC Milan swoop in late and get their man? Only time will tell, but it certainly seems that Lamela’s time in North London is coming to an end.

Some Tottenham fans will say it is about time while others will feel he was not given a fair crack of the whip given his age when he first arrived and the fact that injury robbed him of his debut campaign.

Lamela certainly has the talent but he is also increasingly frustrating and with just six goals and 14 assists in 66 matches, and with something needing to change at Spurs after a disappointing start, it would be no real surprise to see him move on…be that to Inter or to AC Milan.
