Italian international expected to leave the capital club this summer.
Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo has declined the opportunity to talk to Premier League side Southampton according to La Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Giallorossi are desperate to get rid of the 27-year-old after numerous run-ins with both previous coaches and the supporters.
As a result, it is understood that they have accepted a bid of €20m from the Premier League side as reported by football-italia.net, as coach Mauricio Pochettino eyes a reunion with the striker following their time together at Espanyol.
Manchester City have also been paired with having an interest in acquiring the striker this summer, but it looks as though he will decline the chance to speak to the Saints.
Rudi Garcia addressed the displeasure shown by a group of supporters who greeted the team on their return to training this week, claiming that they can’t be real fans of the club.
Meanwhile, Osvaldo was a late arrival to pre-season camp and it isn’t expected that he will last much longer in the Italian capital as the club actively look for a buyer.
Despite his disciplinary troubles, the Italian international has maintained an impressive goal-scoring record during his time in Rome, although it appears as though Garcia will place his faith in Mattia Destro next season.
Although captain Francesco Totti caused a stir this week with comments suggesting he may retire at the end of this season, it is understood that Roma will offer their club legend a new deal in the coming weeks.
