A report in the Sunday Telegraph suggests Spurs are preparing a bid for the 21-year-old Argentine forward.

‘Coco’ Lamela scored 15 goals for the Giallorossi in 33 games this season, also proving instrumental in creating many more for his teammates.

The imminent arrival of ex-Roma director general Franco Baldini as Tottenham’s new director of football has also boosted their connection with Lamela.

As the Lupi paid €12m to sign him from River Plate two years ago, it remains to be seen what price-tag they will put on him.

New Coach Rudi Garcia will also be unlikely to consider losing one of his most promising young players.

Lamela has previously been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City, although it is believed that never progressed to a formal offer.
