Napoli told to sign Lamela

Former Napoli striker Roberto Sosa has advised the Azzurri to sign River Plate youngster Erik Lamela.

"Napoli and Argentines have a special relationship," the South American pundit told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"The dream is Lamela of River. He is 19 and if you offer a little bit more than he is worth then you can sign him.

"He is a really strong player who has understood at River what it is like to play under real pressure. He's been in a relegation battle this season, but the boy reacted well.

"Erik is irresistible with the ball at his feet and in a couple of years he will be worth three times the amount he is now."

The teenager is considered as a rising star of the Argentine and South American game.

Lamela is being valued at €12m and has also attracted the interest of Roma, Lazio and Milan in recent times.
