Reports continue to suggest Manchester City are in talks with Roma over Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
The fiery 27-year-old was excluded from the Confederations Cup after publicly insulting then-Roma Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli.
For the same reasons, he is on the transfer market despite the arrival of new tactician Rudy Garcia.
According to several different sources in Italy and England, Roma are holding regular talks with Manchester City to discuss a move.
Osvaldo would be reunited with manager Mauricio Pochettino, who worked with him at Espanyol.
He had also been linked with Tottenham in recent weeks, but City see him as an alternative to Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo.
