Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of completing a deal for Erik Lamela, with the AS Roma winger set to join for a club-record £30million, reports the Daily Star.

The 21-year-old will put pen to paper in the next 24 hours, as the north London club edge closer to their fifth signing of the summer, following the arrival of Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Etiene Capoue.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has wasted little time in strengthening his squad at White Hart Lane, as he looks to secure Champions League qualification in 2013/14.

The probable sale of Gareth Bale is believed to be funding Tottenham's notable investment, with new technical director Franco Baldini also playing a pivotal role in the acquisition of recent signings.

The former Roma director has been holding talks with Lamela's agent Pablo Sebbag for the past week, and the Argentina international's representative is now in London negotiating the final touches of the deal.

Lamela scored 15 times in 35 appearances as he helped Roma finish sixth in Serie 'A' and reach the Coppa Italia final last season.

On Sunday, he was an unused substitute in the Italian club's 2-0 victory over Livorno, heightening expectations he is poised to depart the Stadio Olimpico for Tottenham.
