Four Italian clubs are in the race to sign Erik Lamela from Tottenham this summer, according to reports.

Lamela joined Spurs from Roma in a deal worth up to a club record €35 million, however injury restricted him to just three Premier League starts and caused him to miss out on Argentina's World Cup squad.

Although Tottenham are unlikely to be looking at selling the talented youngster after one season, reports in Italy claim that no less than four clubs are looking to lure him away from White Hart Lane.

Roma are said to want the 22-year-old back at the Stadio Olimpico, while Napoli, Florentina and Perugia are also monitoring his situation.

Tottenham announced the appointment of Lamela's countryman Mauricio Pochettino earlier this week, and it is hoped he will be able to get the best out of the young star.

With Pochettino on board Spurs appear to be firming up their summer transfer plans - the former Espanyol boss looks set to raid his former club Southampton by lodging bids for midfielder Adam Lallana as well as forward Jay Rodriguez.
