Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles admits he's a huge fan of fellow Argie Erik Lamela.

He believes the Argentine, 21, will eventually establish himself as the club's best player.

Ardiles, who made 238 league appearances for Spurs, said of his compatriot: "I am very impressed with Eriksen. He's been wonderful from the start but in ­Argentina, Lamela played for River Plate and he was named the new Messi.

"He moved to Roma and was labelled the new Totti. That tells you how talented he is.

"He is very skilful - he will be our best buy this summer."
