International striker doesn’t appear to have a future in the Italian capital.
Roma are understood to be desperate to sell striker Pablo Osvaldo as sporting director Walter Sabatini visits interested parties in England.
Sabatini is reportedly in England this week to discuss a number of transfer dealings, but specifically to talk with Tottenham, Manchester City and Southampton who have all previously been linked with an interest in the Italian international.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Giallorossi have made it a priority to sell the troublesome striker, who despite maintaining an impressive goal-scoring rate during his time at the club, has had his fair share of problems off the pitch.
The 27-year-old was dropped from Cesare Prandelli’s Italy squad for the Confederations Cup after he publicly criticised former Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli.
He has also encountered run-ins with the supporters as well as previous coaches, and it is believed that the club have finally had enough and are looking to sell.
His departure would then enable them to have both financial backing and space in the squad to bring in reinforcements this summer, as newly appointed coach Rudi Garcia looks to improve on a disappointing campaign last year.
Roma are understood to be interested in signing Manchester United winger Nani, while Daniele De Rossi’s future will also be up for discussion amid speculation that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is keen on taking the Italian midfielder to Stamford Bridge.
Nevertheless, the priority is clear, and that is Osvaldo must be sold first in order for the incoming transfers to start to arrive.
Despite the emphasis on visiting England, it has previously been reported that interest is also high from La Liga clubs, with Osvaldo potentially sealing a switch back to Spain ahead of the new season.
