The report further adds that Roma want to secure a return for Lamela if Miralem Pjanic leaves the club at the end of the season, with Real Madrid believed to be showing a keen interest in the Bosnian.
Lamela has himself admitted he would like to return to Roma but insists he is not ready to leave Tottenham.

Lamela has also been attracting interest from Juventus and Inter Milan.
