Transfer news: Tottenham agree £25.8m deal for Erik Lamela confirm Roma
Argentina international set for switch to White Hart Lane
Tottenham have agreed a deal with Roma for the transfer of winger Erik Lamela.
The news has been confirmed on the Serie A club's website, with a fee of £25.8m - with possible bonuses of up to £4.3m - enough to see the Italians sanction the sale of the Argentina international.
Lamela will now have to agree personal terms and pass a medical, but with the 21-year-old reportedly already in London, that shouldn't prove an issue.
A statement published on Roma's official website read: "Roma announce they have signed a contract with Tottenham for the outright sale of the playing rights of Erik Lamela, in exchange for 30m euros.
"The agreement also includes the obligation to pay 5m euros in bonuses related to the achievements of the player and the English club."
Lamela has been hugely impressive in Serie A since joining from River Plate for £15m, scoring 19 goals in two seasons.
His goal scoring ability should help to fill the void created by the impending departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, which is expected to be sanctioned as soon as the Lamela deal is completed.
