Serie A giants set to sign St Mary’s forward.
Juventus are set to sign Southampton striker Pablo Osvaldo with the club’s official site confirming an imminent medical for the Argentine born Italian international.
The move to the Turin side will either be a loan deal or could be an outright £16m move to the Serie A title holders according to Sports Direct News.
The 28 year old moved to St Mary’s last summer but has struggled for form, netting just three Premier League goals, and his training ground bust-up with team-mate Jose Fonte was seemingly the death knell of his Saints career.
Osvaldo has previously enjoyed success in the Italian top tier with AS Roma, Bologna and Fiorentina and will offer Juve boss Antonio Conte a further attacking option though one imagines that Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente will still be the club’s first choice pairing up front.
Southampton paid a club record £15m for Osvaldo so a move to recoup that figure would seemingly be enough to complete a swift exit from the south-coast club.
