Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo may well have played his final game for the club after publically criticising his manager Aurelio Andreazzoli following their Coppa Italia final defeat to bitter rivals Lazio.
The 27 year old came off the bench but was unable to stop his side suffering a 1-0 defeat at the Stadio Olympico. His angry reaction was caught by television cameras as he lambasted his manager before later attacking Andreazzoli on Twitter.
"You'd be better off just admitting you're incompetent. Go and celebrate with Lazio..." posted Osvado, who has been heavily linked with Tottenham in recent weeks.
The Express reports that Osvaldo could now be shown the door by the Serie A side, which may attract the attention of Tottenham who are believed to be keen to recruit another striker in the summer.
Tottenham have been linked with several strikers in recent weeks but they are yet to make an official approach for any of their supposed targets.
Internacional striker Leandro Damiao and Barcelona forward David Villa have once again been suggested as possible additions, but reports state that manager Andre Villas-Boas may now decide to move for Osvaldo.
The Italy international has been dropped from the national squad by Cesare Prandelli ahead of the Confederations Cup and was condemned by the Italian media for his behaviour.
While his childish streak may well put off potential suitors, Osvaldo has excelled for Roma this season, scoring 16 league goals which put him behind just behind Edinson Cavani and Antonio Di Natale in the race for the capocannoniere.
The Express states that his behaviour may also lead to Roma accepting a lesser offer than the £15m he was originally valued at before recent events.
Osvaldo has emerged as somewhat of a late developer having struggled to make an impression in Italy before moving to Espanyol in 2009 where he scored 22 goals in 47 games.
