Tottenham have reportedly offered Italian club AC Milan Erik Lamela in a bid to try sign Krzysztof Piatek – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are not pleased with the speculation.
According to the Times, Spurs want to try sign centre-forward Piatek from Milan but don’t want to match their £25million price tag.
It is understood that Jose Mourinho’s team have offered Lamela or his teammate Juan Foyth as part of a deal for Piatek.
Lamela has been with Spurs since 2013 and become a real fan favourite in recent years.
The 27-year-old attacker has had to deal with his fair share of injury problems, but on his day is a serious threat with his left foot and has proven that.
He is a right-winger that has four goals and four assists in 21 games across all competition so far this campaign.
A selection of Spurs supporters on social media have made it clear they don’t want Lamela to exit North London and don’t want to include him in any part of a deal for Piatek.
The Argentine playmaker has recently made a decent impact in the FA Cup competition, but is still yet to seriously impress in the league since Mourinho took charge.
Here are some Spurs fans on Lamela:
Lamela???? Get outta town.

There’s no way Jose would let Lamela leave.
And he shouldn’t leave. Always gives everything on the pitch.

Getting rid of Lamela would be a mistake. If no other playmaker comes in next few days we’ll leave ourselves with just GLC pulling the strings – what if he got injured?!
A striker without service will leave us just as weak as having creators without a striker

Surely not Lamela, he’s a Mourinho type of player.
