Erik Lamela will fly to London at some point over the next 24 hours to complete his move from Roma to Tottenham.
That is according to Sky Sport Italia, who this afternoon claim that the Argentine’s agents are in the English capital wrapping up personal terms.
The 21-year-old was an unused substitute in Roma’s 2-0 win at Livorno last night in Week 1 of the new Serie A season.
The wide attacker is expected to cost Spurs, who look set to cash in on Real Madrid target Gareth Bale, around €35m.
Lamela, who Tottenham director Franco Baldini knows well given his time with the Giallorossi, joined the Italian outfit in 2011 from River Plate for around €17m.
He has scored 19 goals in 62 League games for La Magica – 15 of those came during the last campaign.
