Lamela ready for Livorno-Roma

Erik Lamela is in the Roma squad list for Sunday’s Serie A opener against Livorno, but could it be his last game?

The Argentine is thought to be on the verge of a transfer to Tottenham, which could be completed on Monday or Tuesday for €30m plus €5m in performance-related bonuses (£25.8m plus £4.3m in add-ons).

Coach Rudi Garcia named his squad for the trip to Livorno on Sunday evening, including Lamela and Gervinho.

Kevin Strootman is out after spraining his ankle during a pre-season friendly, while Mattia Destro is a long-term absentee.
