Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Erik Lamela could be ready to quit the north London club in order to go back to Italy in January, according to talkSPORT.
The former Roma man has struggled with life in England and hasn't had the desired impact at White Hart Lane since arriving in the summer of 2013.
The Lilywhites paid £30million for Lamela, who was seen as the replacement for Gareth Bale, who left the club in order to join Real Madrid, but the Argentine hasn't had the effect Daniel Levy would have wanted.
It's public knowledge that Levy was the man behind the Lamela signing, when Andre Villas-Boas was in charge, and the 22-year-old has failed to adapt to Premier League football.
The club made the winger their highest-ever transfer fee when signing him back in 2013, and despite playing in every Premier League game this season, Lamela is still tempted to return to Italy in January if the opportunity arises.

Serie A Interest
According to reports in Italy, two Serie A clubs have already held brief talks with Lamela's representatives, and it's believed that they are both keen on a loan-deal in January, before making it permanent in the summer.
The two clubs interested are Inter Milan and Napoli, and they are both keen on bringing the Argentinian on loan in January until the end of the season before coming to an agreement with Spurs in the Summer for a permanent deal.
Lamela's most prolific moment at White Hart Lane came earlier this season when he scored a wonder goal in the Europa League, but apart from that, his career in England hasn't been memorable.
As it stands, no formal talk has come from Tottenham officials or Mauricio Pochettino, but according to Lamela's representatives, the transfer talk are in their early stages, indicating that a move could be on the cards.
