Erik Lamela adjusting to life in London

Erik Lamela admits that London has always interested him but says that it is not easy to adjust straight away after joining Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

Erik Lamela has admitted that there are still difficulties with adjusting to life in London.

The Argentinian became Tottenham Hotspur's record signing when he joined from Roma for £30m in the summer.

"Cars on the opposite side of the street seems strange to me but I am still in a phase where London is new," Lamela told Sunday People.

"London is a beautiful city with many places of interest, but I am a player and is not easy to fit in too much tourism.

"I am still adapting to life in London but England was always a country that interested me. That is on a personal level, and at Spurs I am working to be one of the first names in the starting XI. That is my big objective."

Lamela was an unused substitute as Spurs drew 1-1 with Chelsea on Saturday.
