Transfer News – Southampton sign Pablo Daniel Osvaldo

Southampton have completed the signing of Roma striker, Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.

The Saints have broken their transfer record to sign the Italian, with the striker costing around £15million.

The 27-year-old has signed a four-year contract at St Marys.

Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has become Southampton’s record signing.

It is the second time that Southampton have broken their transfer record this summer, after spending £12.5million on Victor Wanyama.

New signing, Osvaldo, has played under Saints manager, Mauricio Pochettino, in the past when the pair were at Espanyol.

Osvaldo scored 16 goals in Serie A last season for Roma and has also earned nine caps for Italy.

With the likes of Osvaldo and Wanyama being added to a squad that already contains good players like Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert, it will be interesting to see how high the Saints can finish this season.

What do you guys think about Southampton? How well can they do this season?
