Tottenham are currently in talks with Erik Lamela in the hope of extending his current contract with the club.
The 26-year-old spent nearly the entire 2016-17 season on the sidelines due to a long-term injury and only managed seven Premier League starts last season in what have undoubtedly been two very frustrating seasons for both the midfielder and the Tottenham fans.
However, Spurs now look to be showing their faith in the Argentine as according to reports from Sky Italy reporter Gianluca di Marzio, both parties are currently in talks to extend Lamela's contract in north London.
Despite his lack of playing time over the last two seasons, fans would have at least been encouraged by his impressive display in Tottenham's final Premier League game of last season. Lamela scored twice and bagged himself an assist in Tottenham's 5-4 win over Leicester City, proving he hasn't lost his eye for goal just yet.
The report claims the parties are looking to extend his contract into the year 2022 as Tottenham head into a new era with the club set to move into their brand new stadium next season.
This news will likely please fans who seem to be growing more impatient due to Tottenham's lack of signings so far. Whilst Premier League competitors began their summer spending spree weeks ago and now look to be completing their final deals, Tottenham are yet to make a signing this window as the new season fast approaches.
Fans will be hoping to see some new faces through the door very soon, however will still be delighted with the news they may be extending Lamela's stay at the club and even if they aren't to use the Argentina international as often as they would like, a new contract would eliminate the threat of losing him for a low fee heading towards the final year of his contract.
