Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus are reportedly set to open talks over the sale of forward Erik Lamela.

The 23-year-old has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League since his £25.7m move from Roma two years ago.

Now Juventus, who lost Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich on Monday, are keen to bring the Argentina international back to Serie A and are plotting a bid.

Despite failing to light up the Lane on a consistent basis, boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to keep the playmaker and help him succeed in England, but the Spurs hierarchy could take the decision out of his hands if the Italian champions make a rumoured offer in the region of £25m.

FC Porto were also linked with a swoop for Lamela, but they will struggle to compete with the financial power of the Turin club.
