Tottenham are on the verge of completing the signing of Erik Lamela after the 21-year-old arrived at London's Holly House hospital to undergo a medical, Goal can reveal.

Roma confirmed that they had reached an agreement with Spurs over a €30 million deal for the Argentine forward on Wednesday as Andre Villas-Boas looks to bolster his squad ahead of the expected departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Christian Eriksen is also due in London to carry out his medical on Thursday, while Vlad Chiriches is another player set to complete a switch to White Hart Lane as Spurs look to make further headway in the summer window.

The trio will add to the arrivals of Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue as Villas-Boas continues to splash the cash ahead of receiving an €100m windfall when Bale concludes his record transfer to the Spanish capital.

Goal exclusively revealed that Spurs opened talks over a deal for Lamela back on August 14, while a move for Chiriches initially stalled after Steaua owner Gigi Becali pulled the plug on negotiations before the north Londoners came back in for the defender and struck a deal on Saturday.

Eriksen, meanwhile, had been courted by Liverpool in recent seasons although it's Villas-Boas and Tottenham that have seemingly won the race for his signature, with Ajax technical director Marc Overmars confirming on Wednesday that the Dutch club were in talks with Spurs over a transfer.
