The club said: “We are delighted to announce that we’ve reached agreement with AS Roma for the transfer of Erik Lamela.
“Erik made a total of 67 appearances in all competitions for Roma, scoring 21 goals. He also has three full caps for Argentina. The agreement also includes the obligation to pay five million euros in bonuses related to the achievements of the player and the English club.”
While the transfer fee, stats, scout reports, tactical analysis of the signing are done by a plethora of blogs out there, we decided to post something that most of you guys wouldn’t have seen. A video of Erik Lamela when he was a 12-year-old created by Trans World Sport who spent time with Lamela and his family in Buenos Aires back in 2004 to get us an insight on his childhood.
