Record Southampton signing Dani Osvaldo says that he is already looking forward to returning home to Argentina, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.

The powerful Italy international has only been with the south coast club since August, when Osvaldo arrived at St Mary’s from Serie A giants AS Roma on a four-year deal for a fee of £12.8 million.

However, the Buenos Aires-born front man claims that despite having only been with the Saints now for two months, he is already thinking about the day that he will be back in the land of his birth.

“Football here is so physical, but it doesn’t have the technique and quality that it has in Spain,” said Osvaldo.

And it is Argentinian giants Boca Juniors that the 27-year-old really wants to play for.

“I’m already thinking about moving back to Argentina. I want to play for Boca, that’s my dream,” said the striker.

“I have been dreaming about wearing Boca’s shirt during my entire life.”

Osvaldo has so far appeared in five matches in total for his new team, all of which came in the Premier League, scoring one goal in the process, which came last weekend in the 1-0 win over newly promoted Crystal Palace in the top flight at St Mary’s.

However, with a long-term contract with Mauricio Pochettino’s side that runs until June 30 2017, it will be hard for the forward to quit the club and return to Argentina any time soon.
