He underperformed his expected goals (xG) output, but overperformed his expected assists (xA) output, meaning Spurs could be snagging a good provider of goals.

The move brings an end to Lamela’s eight-year stint at Spurs.

The 29-year-old Argentinian joined from Roma in August 2013 and made 257 appearances in all competitions.

Spurs said on their website: “A club man through and through, we wish Erik all the best for the future.”
