Argentine international attacking midfielder Erik Lamela joined us from AS Roma in August, 2013.
Erik enjoyed a tremendous 2015-16 campaign, establishing himself in our starting XI on a regular basis with a string of committed displays.
He scored 11 goals during that season - five in the Premier League and six in the Europa League - including his first hat-trick in a 4-1 home win over Monaco in December, 2015, and finished the season having made 44 appearances in all competitions.
In his early days, Erik progressed through the ranks at River Plate in Argentina and went on to make 40 appearances before joining Roma in 2011, where he made 67 appearances in all competitions and scored 21 goals.
He was restricted to 17 appearances in all competitions in his debut season at Spurs, 2013-14, and a back injury ended his campaign in December.
He responded with 46 appearances in 2014-15 and scored five goals - including one of the moments of the season with his spectacular 'Rabona' goal against Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League in October, 2014.
Capped four times by Argentina at Under-20 level, he made his full international debut in May, 2011, against Paraguay.
He was named in the Argentina squad for back-to-back Copa Americas in June, 2015, and June, 2016.
