Tottenham Hotspur fans generally appear to be behind the idea of offering Erik Lamela as part of the deal which could bring Giovani Lo Celso to White Hart Lane.

According to The Sun, Tottenham could look to do a trade offer with Real Betis for Lo Celso, as he is proving to be very expensive.

 

Spurs may give Betis the chance to sign Lamela, if they can have Lo Celso in exchange.

And many Spurs fans have suggested that they wouldn’t be too disappointed to see Lamela depart White Hart Lane this summer.

Lamela has shown flashes of quality during his time with Tottenham, but he has struggled to stay off the treatment table.

There is pressure on Lamela to stay fit and start stepping up now, as patience at White Hart Lane is wearing thin.

Pochettino is known to be a big fan of the Argentine winger, but whether he would be willing to sacrifice him to get Lo Celso in remains to be seen.

Tottenham have made two signings so far this summer, with Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke signing up.
