Juve continue Osvaldo talks

Southampton and Juventus continue discussions over Dani Osvaldo, whilst the player is reported as arriving in Italy this afternoon.

The striker has seen late interest in the January transfer window emerge from the Old Lady, which, on from Beppe Marotta’s comments, reportedly has them looking to tie him up on a provisional loan.

Whilst the clubs are seen as agreeing to an initial €2m fee for the Italy international to return to the peninsula until the summer, reports in both England and Italy indicate that talks are continuing over the value of the purchase option in place.

Where Juve are seen to be pushing for an amount between €10m and €11m, Saints are apparently pushing for €15m, to match the figure they paid Roma for the player back in the summer.

SportMediaset, meanwhile, are reporting that Osvaldo could be arriving by plane this afternoon to sign off on the move and complete his side of formalities.
