The agent of Roma forward Erik Lamela has played down speculation his client is on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur, rubbishing suggestions he's in London to discuss a move, reports ESPN.

The Argentina international has been the subject of intense transfer interest all summer, with the Premier League touted as his most likely destination, should he leave the Serie 'A' club before the close of the current window.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is believed to be keen on adding the 21-year-old to his White Hart Lane ranks, but is not as close to sealing Lamela's signature as some might have thought, particularly after the player's representative's latest comments.

"I'm not in London and what is being said is not the truth," Pablo Sabbag told Italy's ANSA agency. "I'm in the [Italian] capital along with Erik's father.

"Lamela's relaxed about it all. We're just waiting for developments. Let's see what happens."

Roma's director of sport Walter Sabatini was reportedly spotted in London earlier today [Tuesday], fuelling speculation Lamela was verging on a move to Tottenham.

However, it's now understood that the chief is in England to discuss the possible sale of another of the club's prized assets, with Sky Sport Italy suggesting that Marco Borriello could be about to join Premier League rivals Fulham.
