Erik Lamela is mulling over a new contract offer from AS Roma.

The Argentina winger knows he's a target for Tottenham and is considering whether to stick or twist this month.

Spurs plan an audacious bid to bring Lamela to White Hart Lane in the event they sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Andre Villas-Boas has already seen his squad strengthened by the signings of Nacer Chadli from FC Twente and Brazil international Paulinho from Corinthians.
