Pablo Osvaldo is unlikely to leave Roma in the summer despite interest from Tottenham Hotspur, according to the striker’s former agent.

The Italy international, who was born in Buenos Aires, has scored 12 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions this season, including strikes against AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has made no secret of his desire to sign a striker after missing out on Leandro Damiao in January.

But Osvaldo’s former agent Dario Decoud doubts the forward will leave the Rome outfit in the summer, with the 27-year-old keen to work with manager Aurelio Andreazzoli.

“Osvaldo is very focused and wants to finish this season well,” Decoud told Sport Mediaset.

“Pablo wants to repay the faith shown in him by [Coach Auerlio] Andreazzoli.

“I know for certainty that Roma consider him a key player and virtually non-transferable.”

Osvaldo has scored 23 goals in 44 appearances for Roma after completing a €17.5m (£14.9m) move to the three-time Serie A winners from Espanyol in 2011.
