A move back to Italy had widely been seen on the cards for Lamela and it can now be revealed that giants Inter Milan are looking to make a swoop for the winger.
“I can confirm that we are in talks with the Nerazzurri”, he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Coco” Lamela has never quite settled in the Premier League since his move from Roma in 2013.
“We’re waiting for some news, we are willing to start a negotiation”. It’s true that he gave his best in Italy and that is probably more suited to his characteristics.
However, Inter are adopting an ambitious approach in the transfer market.
Inter boss Roberto Mancini is a big fan of the 23-year-old, the Express claim, but it looked as if they would have to battle Serie A champions Juventus for his signature.
Although Lamela arrived to a great fanfare following his impressive spell in Serie A, the South American has failed to justify the fee paid for him in two miserable, injury-ravaged years in England.
