It’s reported Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is reconsidering the Southampton offer, as the Roma man would receive over €3m per season.
The striker is wanted by Southampton, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid, but until now had been frosty on accepting a move to the Saints.
According to Sky Sport Italia on Saturday evening, Osvaldo is now prepared to consider the proposal, mainly due to the impressive wages.
This includes a contract worth €3m per season plus performance-related bonuses – which comes out as over £2.5m.
Osvaldo was dropped from Roma’s friendly against Ternana today due to a muscular problem, though many expect it is a smokescreen for his transfer negotiations.
Southampton won their opening game of the Premier League season this afternoon, squeezing a 1-0 victory away to West Brom in stoppages.
