There is excitement here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed that Andre Villas-Boas may well be set to make an approach for Roma outcast Pablo Osvaldo this summer, well according to Metro that is.
The striker has been ever more divisive at the Italian club and they are finally ready to offload the player and given that Tottenham are looking for a whole new forward line up this summer it does not really come as a surprise they are after the tempestuous striker.
Given that Jermain Defoe has not netted a Premier League goal in 2013 and Emmanuel Adebayor went shall we say AWOL during the African Cup of Nations build-up, the club have finally lost patience with the duo and are all too aware they cannot rely on Gareth Bale all the time to net them the big goals.
Osvaldo is only 27 years of age and is a versatile forward, being able to easily play as the number nine or revert to being a wide man should the need arise. Even though he has netted an impressive 12 goals in only 24 games, Roma are set to offer Spurs a cut price deal and AVB can emulate former manager Redknapp with some wheeling and dealing in order to bring a class forward to the lane for a minimal amount of money.
Is Osvaldo the man to revamp Tottenham’s striking options next season? Rate this rumour below.
