Tottenham Hotspur struggling to sell Argentine flop

Tottenham Hotspur are struggling to sell Argentine winger Erik Lamela, according to Daily Mirror.

Lamela arrived at White Hart Lane from Roma in a reported £25.7m deal in August 2013.

Despite entering the Premier League with a real promising reputation, the Argentine has struggled to adapt to life in England, and is fully expected to make the move back to Italy in the summer.

Reports earlier this season claimed Inter Milan were frontrunners for his signature, after receiving a personal recommendation from boss Roberto Mancini.

Serie A winners and Champions League runners up Juventus are also said to be keen, however, it is now understood that the English club are struggling to entice clubs into making a summer bid.

Lamela is valued at around the £15m mark, but a number of interested clubs have been put off by that amount, believing Spurs should sell for less, given the little amount of time he has been allowed on the field at White Hart Lane.

Atletico Madrid are keen, but their decision to look elsewhere may hinder another Lamela bid.
