Tottenham boss Redknapp ponders trying again for Espanyol striker Osvaldo
Tottenham are reviving interest in Espanyol striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
The Daily Mail says Osvaldo's agent is due to fly in for talks over a prospective move for Osvaldo to Atletico Madrid. Atletico are willing to offer no more than £15million and that has caused the deal to stall.
Espanyol value the 25-year-old at £18m and want the money to strengthen elsewhere. However, if a deal can't be struck Atletico will surprisingly move to the rather more expensive target of Falcao from Porto.
That will leave Espanyol still looking for takers on a player who scored 13 goals in 24 games last season and has earned plenty of admirers. Tottenham were not totally convinced after watching him but he remains an option.
