After a disappointing first season in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, Erik Lamela had been heavily linked with a move back to Serie A, but Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio does not believe there is any chance that Tottenham Hotspur will let Lamela go this summer.

The Argentinian - who can play as a winger or attacking midfielder - made his name with Roma before being signed for close-to £30 million by Tottenham as part of their spending spree following the sale of Gareth Bale last year, making him the most expensive player in the club's history.

Flop

However, following some poor performances and several injuries, he only played nine games for the London club last season. This led to renewed interest for the player, especially from Serie A, with some suggesting the the players exit was imminent.

Inter Milan have made their admiration for the player clear in the past, but Ausilio has said that Lamela remains a key part of Spurs’ plans under new boss Mauricio Pochettino, according to Sky Sports News.

No deal

He said: "Lamela is a dream that has no chance of becoming true because Tottenham don't want to put him on the market, just like we did when someone came to ask about Kovacic, who is absolutely not for sale.”

Inter have also been linked with Manchester United's Javier Hernandez, but Ausilio says they are looking for a different type of player and are keeping their eyes on Parma winger Jonathan Biabiany and Cagliari’s Victor Ibarbo.

Hernandez move?

He explained: “Chicharito Hernandez? He hasn't the characteristics of the player we're looking for. We like Ibarbo and Biabiany, while there was nothing about Pablo Daniel Osvaldo."
