Erik Lamela has vowed to show Tottenham Hotspur fans what he can do next season.

The Argentina international’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months after a disappointing, injury-hit campaign resulted in him making just three Premier League starts for the north London club.

I am confident you will see a much better me this season

But Lamela, who joined Spurs in a club-record £30m deal from Roma last summer, is focused on enjoying a productive second season at White Hart Lane under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.

“A footballer always feels lonely when he cannot play for whatever reason and I felt very lonely at times last season,” Lamela told The Sun.

“But I am getting in good shape and am determined to show Tottenham the real Erik Lamela this season.

“I have recovered from my injuries, we have a new manager and I cannot wait to play.

“I am confident you will see a much better me this season.”
