Four-way battle for Osvaldo

A four-way battle for the signature of Pablo Osvaldo is set to ensue over the summer.

Tottenham, Athletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus have all registered an interest in the Argentinian born Italian.

Fulham recently had a reported £10.5m rejected for the player that Espanyol value closer to £17m.

And the players’ agent, Dario Decoud, insists that competition is firece for the signing of his client.

“Atletico Madrid and Tottenham like him, but it is early to speak of a transfer,” Decoud said.

“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.

“Now Pablo is on vacation and from July we will know more.”

Osvaldo scored 13 goals last season as Espanyol finished 8th in La Liga.
