Report: Roma have Osvaldo deal

Reports in Spain insist Roma have already struck a €15m deal to sign striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo from Espanyol.

The 25-year-old Italian-Argentine has long been linked with a move to the Stadio Olimpico and negotiations intensified over the last few days.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the Giallorossi will buy Osvaldo for €15m plus another €3m in sponsorship agreements.

He played football for Italy at Under-21 level and can be used as a centre-forward or a wide man in the trident attack.

An official announcement is expected on Monday or Tuesday.

If Osvaldo does arrive, then that increases the likelihood Marco Borriello will leave Roma.
