Inter want to take Erik Lamela off Tottenham’s hands as director of football looks to re-unite with former Roma star

INTER MILAN are interested in taking Erik Lamela off Tottenham’s hands, as the Nerazzuri’s director of football fancies a reunion with the player he brought to Roma.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, the 25-year-old has emerged as a target for the Serie A giants.

That is despite the fact that Lamela was out of action for over a YEAR with a persistent hip injury on both joints, that required double surgery and months of rehab.

According to Di Marzio Inter are “looking for reinforcements” and are already at work over summer transfers.

He claims the club, currently fourth in the race for the Scudetto, are using Walter Sabatini’s connection to try and bring the Argentina international back to Italy.

Tottenham, though, are not thought to be entertaining any sales this summer.

Inter are looking for a big signing this summer, according to the respected journalist, and Lamela played at the Stadio Olimpico between 2011 and 2013 after a move from River Plate.

But they could find it hard in the transfer market unless they have seriously big money to invest and can fend off Europe’s biggest names.

Lamela has yet to bag a goal since his comeback from injury, but got 90 minutes under his belt for the first time this term in the 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon.

In fact, he last scored for Spurs against Gillingham in September 2016 in a 5-0 Carabao Cup victory.
