Tottenham are leading the race to sign Espanyol striker Pablo Osvaldo, although a number of clubs are reportedly interested.

The 25-year-old has been making waves in Primera Liga this season, and the front-man's form has not gone unnoticed across Europe.

Whilst Spurs are keen to bring Osvaldo to White Hart Lane, a whole host of Spanish clubs have been credited with an interest, including Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, making the Argentine one of this summer's hottest transfer properties.

However, Harry Redknapp's chances of landing Espanyol's star striker have seemingly improved, after their CEO Joan Collet stated that the former Fiorentina ace is a player who could be sold to Spurs if the price is right.


Speaking to Spain, Collet said: "No-one here at the club said he is not for sale."

If Tottenham are to secure the services of Osvaldo, it will come at a hefty price. Espanyol will reportedly look to hold out for the €20million (£17m) buy-out clause inserted in the striker's contract when he sealed a permanent move to the Barcelona-based club last summer.
