Tottenham close in on £60m double deal as Bale nears exit

Published 4 Comments

Tottenham are lining up a £60 million double swoop for Willian and Erik Lamela as they prepare for life after Gareth Bale.

Willian is in London today for a medical ahead of his £30 million switch according to the Daily Mail, who also say Spurs are lining up a £30 million deal for Roma ace Erik Lamela.

The Mail claims representatives of the Argentinian including his father Jose and agent Pablo Sebbag have a meeting scheduled today with Roma director of football Walter Sabatini and Spurs' technical director Franco Baldini in London.

Lamela is considered one of the most talented youngsters in Europe having arrived from River Plate in 2011.

Willian meanwhile was a target for Liverpool but Tottenham gazumped them to close in on a deal for the 25-year-old.

Tottenham and Andre Villas-Boas have tracked the Brazilian international for some time but looked to be missing out on the Brazilian international to Liverpool before making their move over the weekend.

Spurs have already spend around £60 million on new players this summer including the likes of Paulinho and Roberto Soldado, both of whom the north London club broke their transfer record for.

Their latest spending spurge suggests that Bale could be on his way to Real Madrid.

Reports in Italy suggest Spurs have accepted a bid of £93 million and that full-back Fabio Coentrao will be part of the deal, although it is not clear whether the Portuguese international is included in that figure or on top of it.
