Serie A side Bologna are eyeing a move for Tottenham Hotspur forward Erik Lamela this summer. The 29-year-old’s current contract is due to expire at the end of next season and Bologna have confirmed they are interested in signing him.

Bologna winger Riccardo Orsolini is attracting plenty of interest, with the likes of AC Milan, Juventus and Fiorentina reportedly eyeing a move for the 24-year-old.

Should Orsolini leave, Bologna’s sporting director Walter Sabatini has revealed that Lamela could be brought in as his replacement.

Speaking to Il Resto del Carlino, Sabatini said: “Lamela is one of the names we are looking into.

“We are trying to understand if there are possibilities to get there and there is no guarantee.

“Of course, should Orsolini leave, there would be no better substitute. We will see.”

However, former Bologna player and coach Luca Cecconi does not believe the club should sign Lamela.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Cecconi said: “Lamela does not convince me, he does not fall into the category of players I was referring to before.

“For him, joining Bologna would be a step backwards. 

The stimuli would not be among the highest. Beyond player value, it would not be a good choice.”

Lamela is not the only Spurs player who could be on their way out of the club this summer, with star striker Harry Kane attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City.

When asked about his future earlier this month, Kane said: “I think that’s a hard question to answer right now.

“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros.

“To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.

“I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros.

“Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible.

“I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”
