Last man standing: Lamela, the only one remaining from Spurs’ ‘Magnificent Seven’

After Tottenham sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £85.3million in the summer of 2013, they signed seven players, who the media called the ‘Magnificent Seven’.

These players were: Paulinho, Christian Eriksen, Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches, and Erik Lamela.

The seven were brought in by Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy and technical director Franco Baldini in order to bolster Andre Villas-Boas' squad and try and negate the loss of one of their best players.

But, with Lamela the only man standing, where are his mates now?

Nacer Chadli

He was signed for £7m from FC Twente and played 119 matches for Spurs, scoring 25 goals. Chadli is currently on loan at Anderlecht in his homeland from French club Monaco.

Paulinho

The midfielder cost Spurs £17m when they signed him from Corinthians. He played 67 matches and scored 10 goals.

He is now in China with Guangzhou Evergrande.

Roberto Soldado

The striker was signed for £26m from Valencia and played 76 matches, scoring 16 goals. Soldado is now 34 and plays for Granada in the Spanish top flight.

Etienne Capoue

Capoue was signed for £9.3m from Toulouse, and the defensive midfielder played 36 matches for Spurs, scoring 2 goals.

He is now at Watford.

Vlad Chiriches

An £8.5million signing from Napoli, Chiriches made 41 appearances and scored 2 goals for Spurs.

He was sold back to Napoli in 2015 and is currently on loan at Sassuolo.

Christian Eriksen

There's no question that Eriksen, who was the last of the 2013 recruits, was the most successful during his time with Spurs.

After being signed from Ajax for £11m, Eriksen scored 69 goals and provided 89 assists in 305 appearances, something that and saw the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona covet his signature.

Eriksen left Spurs in January 2019 and joined Inter Milan in a deal worth £16.9m.
