After Southampton announced the capture of club-record signing Pablo Daniel Osvaldo earlier this week, the former AS Roma striker arrives in England with an opportunity to join an exclusive club of Italian players that have taken the Premier League by storm.

The 27-year-old has committed to a progressive south coast club with ambitions of at least a top 10 finish in the top-flight this term, representing a clear signal of intent from St Mary's chairman Nicola Cortese and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Saints fans will be hoping that Osvaldo settles quickly in a new country and culture, in the hope that the team will reap the rewards of his undoubted talent, that delivered 16 Serie 'A' goals last season, and prompted his new club to pay upwards of £12.9million for his much-coveted signature.

Signing a four-year deal with wages of around £55,000-a-week, Southampton have put their faith in the somewhat controversial cult figure, to help propel the club into the higher echelons of the division, and realise his potential as a future Premier League star.

The Italy international is a charismatic individual that comes with an element of baggage given his previous on and off-pitch demeanours, which draws similarities to a number of his fellow countrymen to have excelled in this country in years gone by.
