Juventus are prepared to rescue Erik Lamela from his Tottenham torment but the Italian champions will not make a move before the summer.

Lamela’s father has said his son wants to leave London and return to Italy, concerned that his place in Argentina’s World Cup squad will be jeopardised by another six months at Spurs.

Spurs have made it clear they will not allow the 21-year-old winger to leave on loan and expect most of their £30million back, which should be enough to cool interest from Inter Milan.

Juventus have more money and their sporting director Fabio Paratici is a big admirer of Lamela, who scored 15 goals for Roma last season before Tottenham made their club-record swoop, but are not in the market for such a player this month.

The Serie A leaders have won their last ten domestically, and already have a number of big-name players itching for more first team action.

Lamela has not settled well where he has been slow to adjust to the pace and power of English football and has started only three times in the Barclays Premier League.
