Tottenham could see some return on Lamela’s £30m price tag this season, claims Jiggins

first_imgThe Sun football journalist Paul Jiggins believes Erik Lamela could be set for a big Premier League campaign – if his pre-season campaign with Tottenham is anything to go by.The Argentine scored two goals for the north London club as they ran out 3-2 winners against MLS side Toronto FC on Wednesday night.Lamela struggled to settle in the Premier League during his first season at the club, following a £30m switch, but Jiggins claims fellow Argentine Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival could help the 22-year-old.“Lamela has got a swagger about him again,” he told Extra Time. “He’s very upbeat and positive. When I spoke to him I told him he looks the most relaxed I’ve seen him for a long while, and he attributed that to the new manager.“If he continues in the same vein as he is now, then maybe all is not lost. Daniel Levy might see some return on his £30m.”last_img
