Bologna are set to complete a double deal with Fiorentina for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Sergio Almiron.

Reports from several sources have stated on Friday that Osvaldo has accepted the permanent move to the Dall'Ara for £5m, despite Premier League outfit West Ham's alleged interest.

Osvaldo's agent, Dario Decoud, confirmed: "The Fiorentina director of sport is talking to several different clubs and I can say there is a basic deal with Bologna for Osvaldo.

"I will arrive in Italy on Monday. However, I can also say that there is a very important offer from a Spanish side worth £5.5m and then West Ham have shown interest, but only on loan.

"Fiorentina will only release him on a permanent deal. Roma would like him on loan or in a co-ownership deal, but I doubt that is going to happen."

The latest reports suggest Osvaldo has accepted Bologna's proposal, so the Under 21 international will be a new partner to current Capocannoniere Marco Di Vaio.

Fiorentina are also said to be in intense negotiations with the Rossoblu for another player, as terms have been agreed for Almiron and both clubs are waiting for the midfielder to give a thumbs up.

Argentine Almiron is still owned by Juventus, so the Bianconeri are also involved in these talks.
