Lamela: 'We're in Inter talks'

Tottenham star Erik Lamela’s father confirmed “we are in talks with Inter and would like a return to Italy.”

‘Coco’ Lamela has never quite settled in the Premier League since his move from Roma in 2013.

“We are in talks with Inter, so we’re discussing it,” Jose Lamela told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I can confirm the rumours are true and the interest for Erik is real. We are waiting for more developments over the next few days.

“We would like a return to Italy and are open to negotiations. It’s true that he gave his best in Italy and that is probably more suited to his characteristics.

“We’ll see what happens over the final few days of the transfer market. We are waiting for news too…

“Erik was very happy in Serie A and had two great years with Roma. We would like a return to Serie A and we appreciate the Inter option.”

Sky Sport Italia also claim Inter director of sport Piero Ausilio met with Lamela’s agent today.

The Nerazzurri have already spent big on the transfer market this summer and balanced the books by selling Xherdan Shaqiri to Stoke City and Mateo Kovacic to Real Madrid.
