Tottenham are chasing Espanyol's Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, says his agent, but he could snub the Premier League for a Serie A return.[LNB] The 25-year-old's impressive performances in the Primera Liga last season have reportedly turned heads across Europe. [LNB]Fulham are thought to have made an unsuccessful bid for his services, while Inter Milan, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are all allegedly interested in the forward. [LNB]Osvaldo's agent, Dario Decoud, says Spurs have also joined the race to sign the talented Italian-Argentine. [LNB]But he claims the striker could snub a move to White Hart Lane in favour of joining an Italian side. [LNB]"Atletico Madrid and Tottenham like him, but it is early to speak of a transfer," Decoud told calciomercato.it. [LNB]"It is true that the two clubs (Inter Milan and Juventus) like the player and I can reveal that there have been contacts with them. [LNB]"Osvaldo would like to return to Italy and Inter Milan and Juventus are two great teams. [LNB]"Now Pablo is on vacation and from July we will know more." [LNB]Espanyol are reportedly looking to hold out for the €20million (£17m) buy-out clause inserted in the striker's contract when he sealed a permanent move to the Barcelona club from Bologna last summer. [LNB]But Decoud believes a transfer could go through for less, adding: "Espanyol are asking for €20m, but I think the deal can go through for €15-16m."
