The 27-year-old Italy international has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester City and Tottenham reportedly interested.

However, it is Southampton that have won the battle for Osvaldo's signature, paying an undisclosed fee in excess of the £12.5million they forked out last month for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.
