Inter Milan have opened talks with Tottenham about signing winger Erik Lamela, according to Sky Italia.
The Argentina international joined Spurs from Roma for £25m two years ago after a brilliant season in Serie A in which he scored 15 goals.
But Lamela failed to reproduce that form in London, managing just two Premier League goals in two seasons as he struggled to adapt to the more physical nature of English football.
Inter are keen to add a winger to their squad this summer and have maintained a strong interest Wolfsburg's Croatian star Ivan Perisic.
However with Manchester City locked in negotiations for Kevin De Bruyne, the Bundesliga club are unlikely to part with both.
Lamela is Inter's second choice and it appears they have moved onto him with provisional talks with Spurs taking place on Monday and more scheduled for Tuesday.
