Tottenham prepare £8m bid for Serie A striker

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are reportedly set to make a bid for Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo in the summer transfer window, as they look to take advantage of the player's situation at the Stadio Olimpico.

Osvaldo is deemed a disruptive influence at Roma, and could see himself shipped out at the end of the season by manager Aurelio Andreazzoli despite scoring 12 goals in 24 appearances for the capital club this term.

According to the Daily Express, Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is preparing to table an offer of £8 million for the Argentina-born Italy international as he looks to bolster his White Hart Lane strikeforce when the transfer window reopens.

The 27-year-old forward, who has scored three times in eight appearances for Italy, is reported to have stretched Roma's patience to breaking point this season, and Spurs have already been sounded out as potential suitors.

Villas-Boas will surely add at least one more striker to his Spurs ranks in the summer, with the club's lack of recognised forwards highlighted by the poor form of Emmanuel Adebayor and injury to Jermain Defoe.

Spurs have had to rely on the goals of Gareth Bale this season but, without the Welshman and Defoe, the north London club look worryingly short of options as the the campaign reaches its business end.

Villas-Boas is unlikely to allow similar problems occur come next term and, along with Osvaldo, the Spurs manager has been linked with a swoop for Brazil international Leandro Damiao
