Juventus are reportedly keen on signing Southampton forward Pablo Osvaldo on a permanent basis following his loan move.

Juventus are reportedly keen on signing Southampton striker Pablo Osvaldo on a permanent contract.

The controversial player moved to the Serie A in January on a loan deal following a bust-up with teammate Jose Fonte.

It is believed that Juventus have been impressed by Osvaldo, but are not willing to pay the requested fee of around £15m in the summer, according to Goal.com.

Reports have claimed that Juve will attempt to negotiate a lower price tag for the 28-year-old when the season comes to a close.
