Italian international expected to leave this summer.
Roma director of football Walter Sabatini has flown in to London to push through a deal for striker Pablo Osvaldo to join Fulham.
The 27-year-old has been linked with an exit from the Stadio Olimpico all summer, with the controversial striker falling out with team-mates, former coaches and the supporters during his time at the club.
Last week, the Italian international confronted a supporter after training at Roma’s pre-season retreat, while on Monday a banner was unveiled branding the striker a “coward”.
As a result, with relationships at breaking point it is understood new coach Rudi Garcia is willing to allow the club to sell the troubled star despite his impressive goal-scoring record for the Giallorossi, and it is understood that the Premier League appears to be his most likely destination.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sabatini flew in to London on Tuesday with two objectives, the first of which is to negotiate terms with Fulham over the striker, although both Tottenham and Southampton are said to be interested.
While that remains the priority of his visit, it is also reported that Sabatini will look to agree a deal with Arsenal over the transfer of Gervinho, a player who previously played under Garcia at Lille.
The Gunners are requesting €8m for the winger, and it is believed that once the sale of Osvaldo has been completed, Roma will oblige with the valuation and sign the Ivorian as they look to continue to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
