We know, it's still early days in the Argentine's career at Tottenham but he has shown pretty much nothing to suggest it will improve any time soon.
Given a few chances, Lamela has not exactly lit up the Premier League and is sinking without a trace at White Hart Lane since his £30million transfer from AS Roma.
Despite spending so much on him, it wouldn't be a great surprise if Spurs decide it is just not going to work out and shipped him out before the window slams shut. Perhaps a loan would help, but some players are just destined not to make it.
