The 35-year-old former Tottenham striker made the suggestion following Spurs’ 2-1 defeat to Juventus at the Wembley Stadium in London in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday evening.
Lamela, who is 26 years of age and can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, joined Spurs from AS Roma in the summer of 2013 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £25.7 million.
Former Egypt international striker Mido, who also played for the likes of AS Roma and Middlesbrough, has suggested that Spurs should sign AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci and Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.
Milan signed 30-year-old Italy international central defender Bonucci from Serie A rivals Juventus in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £37.45m.
Slovenia international goalkeeper Oblak moved to Atletico from Benfica in the summer of 2014 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £12.6 million.
@SpursOfficial need to sign a proper tough Center back and a top Keeper and someone who can come on from the bench and change the game!! We need to get rid of Lamela!! He is too light for me!! How many times did he come on and change the game?? Very few!!— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
Last night when we needed someone to come on and change the game the answer wasn’t Lamela!!— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
@SpursOfficial got a great team all around much better team comparing to the time when I was playing there and of course the club is in the right direction but if they r serious about winning things they will have to sign a top keeper and a tough center back who is a leader!!— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
I like him but sorry he is no where near Oblak or Degea or Stegen!! Maybe a nice guy I don’t know but nowhere these names I just mentioned!!— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
Oblak is a top keeper one of the best in Europe— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
They’ve all top defenders I think we need someone there who is older and can lead the line..sometimes in big games U need the experience and character more then anything else I think an older player will make with a lot of experience will make everyone around him better!!— Mido (@midoahm) March 8, 2018
Toby been injured is 28 and very experienced now think he will do the job— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) March 8, 2018
