The representative of Roma forward Erik Lamela has denied having travelled to London to hold talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a €30m move to White Hart Lane for his client.

Developments in the protracted Gareth Bale saga suggest the Welshman is nearing closer to a €93m move to Real Madrid, a move that is likely to prompt Spurs to delve back into the transfer market with just under two weeks until the closure of the transfer window.

A number of reports from both the Italian and British press have suggested the forward's father Jose Lamela and his agent Pablo Sebbag have travelled to the English capital to hold talks with Tottenham's technical director Franco Baldini, where they were also reportedly to be joined by Roma's current director of football Walter Sabatini.

However Lamela's agent Sebbag has denied the meeting in London, but could not rule out further developments in Tottenham's reported pursuit of his client in the near future.

"I am not in London, what is being reported is not true," Sebbeg was quoted as saying by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

"I find myself in Rome along with Erik's father (Jose Lamela). What is the situation? Lamela is quiet, we are waiting. Let's see what happens."

It had earlier been reported that Spurs are willing to offer Lamela a four year contract worth €4m a season in efforts to lure him away from the Stadio Olimpico.

The former River Plate starlet solidified his role as one of Roma's key attacking talents last season where he established himself in a front three alongside Francesco Totti and Pablo Osvaldo, who has since joined Southampton for a club record fee of £15m.

Lamela remains persistently linked with a move that would see him follow Osvaldo to the Premier League as Tottenham contemplate life without Bale.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas yesterday confirmed the club were looking to make further additions to the squad before the transfer window closes in just under two weeks' time.

"We haven't finished," Villas-Boas told reporters yesterday. "I think we have a very good squad and we have obviously had some activity in the market, but we are looking further. There is a possibility."
