Tottenham Hotspur attacker Erik Lamela has dropped a hint he is ready to return for the club's Champions League semi-final.

Lamela has had a season troubled by injuries once again, fading after a promising start.

 

He failed to make the bench at the weekend for Tottenham's trip to Bournemouth.

Now Lamela has dropped a strong hint he is available for selection, posting a photo from a training session on Instagram last night.

Lamela's last game for Tottenham was the away tie against Borussia Dortmund in early March.

Even if he is fully fit, Lamela is unlikely to be involved as a starter against Ajax due to a lack of recent game time.

He faces a battle even to make the bench, and Mauricio Pochettino's decision will be a tactical one based on his alternative options.

Lamela may have to wait until the weekend Premier League tie with Everton to make his return.
