Tottenham lead the chase for Serie A star
Hardly a day goes by here in the Football Transfer Tavern when we do not discuss the potential striking options out there for Andre Villas-Boas and his high flying Tottenham side and now talkSPORT have provided us with a three way chase that is simply sensational.
The Lilywhites currently sit third in the Premier League and look odds on to finish not only in the top four but to progress in the Europa League to boot. Despite all this, AVB is not happy with his options up top and is mindful of the over reliance on Gareth Bale.
Having decided that he wants rid of Emmanuel Adebabyor, the Portuguese manager is now turning his attention to other targets and Pablo Osvaldo is top of that list. The forward currently plies his trade for Roma in Serie A yet is involved in a three way chase between Spurs, Juventus and a Russian club thought to be, yes you guessed it, Anzhi Makhachkala who do not seem happy until they have been linked with every player in Europe.
The Argentine has netted 11 times in his 22 appearances this season and coupled with his performances in the Italian top flight, this has alrted the North London club. Osvaldo has three years left on his deal at the Stadio Olimpico, yet is reportedly being sold in the summer due to dressing room differences with Francesco Totti – the equivalent of God for those of a Roma persuasion.
