Tottenham Hotspur target Pablo Osvaldo would favour a return to Italy this summer according to the player's agent.

The 25-year-old Espanyol striker has turned in a series of scintillating displays in La Liga this season, attracting the attention of a number of clubs this transfer window.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has identified Osvaldo as a player he would like to bring to White Hart Lane this summer in a bid to strengthen his playing squad.

But Tottenham face competition for his signature from clubs across Europe, including Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus.

Osvaldo, an Italian-Argentine of dual citizenship is said to favour a return to Italy, with his representative, Dario Decoud confirming:


"Atletico Madrid and Tottenham like him, but it is early to speak of a transfer," Decoud told

"It is true that the two clubs (Inter Milan and Juventus) like the player and I can reveal that there have been contact with them.

"Osvaldo would like to return to Italy and Inter Milan and Juventus are two great teams. Pablo is on vacation now and from July we will know more."

Another potential sticking point is the fee that Osvaldo would command, to bring his services to White Hart Lane, with Spurs reluctant to pay the €20million his current club are looking for.

"Espanyol are asking for €20m, but I think the deal can go through for €15-16m," Decoud continued.
