Osvaldo rejects Southampton move

There are reports Southampton offered €20m for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, but the Roma striker does not want the Premier League.

Osvaldo has a very fractious rapport with the Giallorossi supporters, former Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli and clashed with some of his teammates too.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Southampton put forward a bid worth €20m for the Italy international who was born and raised in Argentina.

The 27-year-old was specifically requested by manager Mauricio Pochettino, who already worked with him at Espanyol.

However, it is believed Osvaldo does not want to join a Premier League club, as he either hopes to stay in Serie A or move back to La Liga.

He had already been linked with Tottenham in recent weeks. Osvaldo was dropped from the Confederations Cup squad after publicly insulting Roma Coach Andreazzoli.
