Erik Lamela’s father has revealed that his son would welcome a return to Italy, but Tottenham will not allow it.
The former Roma man has found first team opportunities hard to come by since joining the north London outfit in the summer.
And the forward’s father has admitted that his young son would come back to Serie A, if only Spurs would give the green light.
“He would go back to Italy,” Jose Lamela has told The Sun.
“But Tottenham will not let him go in January.
“Lazio? I don’t know anything about that rumour. Would he go there after playing for Roma? I don’t know.”
