AS Roma have confirmed that they have agreed to sell Erik Lamela to Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of 30 million euros.
It is thought that Spurs upped their pursuit for the Argentina attacker after seeing Willian opt to move to Chelsea – a move that was completed earlier on Wednesday.
It is also suggested that Lamela is seen as a replacement for Gareth Bale - who is reportedly on the verge of a world-record move to Real Madrid.
Roma have now confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Spurs, releasing a statement which said, "AS Roma announces that it has signed an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the outright sale of the rights to the player Erik Lamela."
The statement also outlines that the club will be entitled to further bonuses should the player reach certain athletic goals at the Premier League side.
Lamela was impressive for the Giallorossi last term - making 33 appearances where he scored 15 goals and assisted five others.
While confirming the departure of Lamela, the Serie A club also announced that they had secured the services of Adem Ljajic from Fiorentina who will come in as a replacement.
