Tottenham Hotspur face a transfer battle with Italian giants Juventus over striker Pablo Osvaldo, according to reports.

The Daily Express claims that Antonio Conte is interested in bringing the 27-year-old to the Juventus Stadium, and is ready to challenge Fiorentina for the player’s signature.

However, Spurs are also keen on the six-cap international, according to the report, and were interested in a deal during the January transfer window.

A move to White Hart Lane failed to materialise, but the paper cites reports in Italy when claiming that Roma are now willing to listen to offers for Osvaldo.

The Argentine-born forward began his career with Haracan, but moved to Italy in 2006 and enjoyed stints with Atalanta, Lecce, Fiorentina and Bologna before switching to Espanyol.

His stint in Spain lasted just a season, and he returned to Serie ‘A’ with a move to Roma in 2011.

Tottenham Hotspur would offer the player a fresh start in another new country, and with Emmanuel Adebayor heading for the north London exit door, according to the report, space could be available for the arrival of Osvaldo.

And, if the Togolese striker does leave Spurs, then Osvaldo will be fighting with Jermain Defoe for a place in Andre Villas-Boas’ starting line-up.
