Il Corriere dello Sport has learned that Arsenal could make a move on Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
Giallorossi sporting director is currently in London negotiating a deal to sign the Gunners forward Gervinho, but the two sides are not that close to reaching an agreement.
With Roma not prepared to meet Arsenal’s €8 million asking price, they are reportedly ready to suggest a swap deal that would see Pablo Daniel Osvaldo move to the Emirates.
It is no secret the Gunners are searching for a new centre forward, but with their pursuit of Luis Suarez not producing results, they could turn to the Italy international.
Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has proved his worth at Roma, netting 27 times in 55 Serie A matches, but he is expected to leave the club due to the poor relationship with club fans.
Should Arsenal give a green light to the proposed swap deal, both sides would get high-profile forwards without spending a penny.
