Mountains moved to make Erik Lamela blue


Erik Lamela

Free scoring Argentinian international Lamela has been tracked by many clubs in recent times since his rise from River Plate. Moving through the youth ranks very quickly making first team debut at the tender age of 16. Since then grabbing his chance he hasn't looked back. Sporting De Braga made quick work in taking his signature into a long term contract , Andy Howat took great pride in capturing one of the great talents from Argentina and wasn't likely to part ways with such a young talent. Erik stood the test of time and stayed at Sporting , staying for four entire season before asking for a move since Andy resigned from the club. Since Erik and Andy's bond was broken there was no ties holding him from leaving the club. At Sporting , Lamela didn't manage to win the league title but came close on three separate occasions. Erik Lamela is likened to his fellow Argentinian counter part Pastore and also Portuguese superstar Ronaldo. Able to play either center forward or on the wing he is a valuable asset to any team.

Birmingham came in fast to take the youngster and penned him down in a long term contract which sees him putting his future to Birmingham and that grand project which Thaliwal is trying to build. Birmingham's out of favor striker Doumbia has parted ways to Portugal to complete the move of Lamela and also Nordviet who also followed as part of the deal. Lamela has a chance to come into the team quickly as now there are only three strikers note worthy of playing first team football. With the gap opening up its only a matter of time before Birmingham fans will see the great talent of Lamela hit St Andrews for the first time. Nordviet himself is a talent who can play at defensive midfield or center back. With the amount of players switching from defensive midfielder to attacking it is always good to have that back up player to be called upon if needs be. Both Lamela and Nordviet will be joining Division one side Brighton for the season where they will able to play solid first team football and grab experience in the top flight. It is possible for Lamela to progress like Welbeck did scoring a lot and brought back to the first team. Only time will tell.
