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.
This pre-season is very important for me, for my fitness and I’m hoping for a big year
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.
“I am happy with my situation because I had a long injury and now I can train normally,’ Lamela told Tottenham’s website. “The tour went well and I feel good.
“This pre-season is very important for me, for my fitness and I’m hoping for a big year. I think I can play better than I did last season and I hope this happens for me and for the Spurs fans. I would love to do well for them.”
Lamela scored 19 goals in 62 Serie A appearances for Roma before moving to Tottenham last summer.
