Lamela shuts down Serie A return talk: I feel very good at Spurs

Erik Lamela says he's happy and settled at Tottenham.

The midfielder admits he's looking forward to facing Juventus in their Champions League round of 16 tie.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I'm optimistic, we can do it. Juventus is very strong but we're strong too and the 2-2 with Liverpool can give us an extra boost.

"We could've lost, we drew and almost won.

"Juve have character, experience, a great defence and champions in scattered order. (Gigi) Buffon belongs to a particular category: that of the legends.

"I was tried for by Juventus? Never. Same with Inter. When I play I think about where I am and at Tottenham I feel very good. The team is on the rise and I live in a city I love, London."
