Inter Milan are determined to take Tottenham misfit Erik Lamela back to Serie A, according to reports in Italy this morning.

The San Siro club were thwarted in their bid to sign the Argentina forward in January, claims the Corriere dello Sport, but will return to north London at the end of the season with a fresh offer.

Lamela is Tottenham’s club-record signing with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy agreeing a deal worth up to £30million with Roma last summer.
