Roma has confirmed the deal with Tottenham for Lamela.
The 21-year-old enjoyed his best campaign last season, where he scored 15 league goals for the Italian club. He is expected to fill the void expected to be left by Gareth Bale’s exist as the Welsh star completes his move to Real Madrid.
A statement on Roma’s official website read: “Roma announce they have signed a contract with Tottenham for the outright sale of the playing rights of Erik Lamela, in exchange for €30million.
“The agreement also includes the obligation to pay €5million in bonuses related to the achievements of the player and the English club.”
Meanwhile, Spurs boss, Andre Villas-boas, Wednesday confirmed that Bale would fulfill his dream move to Real Madrid before the transfer window closes, but was irritated with the way the saga has panned out.
