New Inter boss Mazzarri wants Osvaldo at the San Siro.

Newly appointed Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri is keen to bring out-of-favour AS Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo to the San Siro, with the player also being tracked by Tottenham and Atletcio Madrid, according to Il Corriere Dello Sport.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has had Osvaldo in his sights ever since it became clear he would be leaving the Italian capital, with the north London side looking to strengthen their strike-force.

However, Mazzarri is also a fan of the forward and is set to offer the 27-year-old an option to stay in Italy with Inter.

Osvaldo is likely to leave Roma after a public bust-up with then interim manager Aurelio Andreazzoli earlier this year, with Andreazzoli expected to be kept on the staff at the Stadio Olimpico next season.

Atletico have been reviewing the striker too as the Madrid side look for a replacement for top-scorer Radamel Falcao – who departed Spain at the end of May in a £50m switch to AS Monaco.

The Argentinian-born Osvaldo has caught the attention of all of these top European sides after having another impressive season in Rome.

Despite playing 29 Serie A matches the forward still managed to grab 16 goals and was also in great form for Italy, scoring three times in four games during the nation’s World Cup qualifying campaign.

The news that Inter have now entered the battle to secure Osvaldo’s signature is bound to come as a disappointment to AVB and Spurs fans, with the club lacking up-front with only Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor as recognised strikers in the squad.
