Serie A giants Napoli are reportedly keen to sign Erik Lamela from Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

The upcoming summer transfer window is very crucial for Spurs.

The north London club are expected to operate on a tight budget but need a massive overhaul after a disappointing campaign.

It has been previously claimed by various publications that Spurs are going to raise funds by selling some of their fringe players. It seems Lamela could be heading out of the club this summer.

The report from Corriere dello Sport claims that Serie A giants Napoli have started talking with Lamela about a potential move.

The 29-year-old joined Spurs in 2013 and has made over 250 appearances for the club.

The Argentine has shown flashes of brilliance during his long stay at the club. However, he has never really become the focal point under any manager, with recurrent injuries limiting his chances.

This season, Lamela has made 21 appearances for the club in the Premier League, of which he has started in just five of them.

Lamela has a contract at the club until 2022, and Napoli should be able to get him at a decent fee.
