Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela enjoyed his best season so far at the club in 2015/16, and is looking forward to further success.

Lamela netted five league goals and provided nine assists, with the highlight being an outstanding strike in a 3-0 win over Manchester United.

After a brief summer break, which saw him join up with the Spurs tour squad early despite featuring in the Copa America tournament and final with Argentina, Lamela is ready to go again.

He sent this message to fans on Sunday night, conveying his excitement.

 

Lamela is a popular member of the Spurs squad, winning over his doubters last season, and supporters are keen for him to continue to justify why he is and remains the club's record signing.

Here is a look at how fans responded to his tweet...

Lamela could face a renewed threat for his place with Georges-Kevin Nkoudou still believed to be incoming, and Heung-Min Son likely to bounce back after a disappointing first season.

Son will be able to take inspiration from the way Lamela has kicked on during his three seasons at White Hart Lane, but the Argentine himself clearly has no intention of losing his starting spot.
