Long-term Tottenham transfer target Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has fallen out with Roma legend Francesco Totti, increasing the likelihood that the striker will be sold in the summer.

Osvaldo and Totti exchanged heated words over who should take a penalty during Sunday's 3-1 loss to Sampdoria and reports in Italy suggest the pair's relationship is now beyond repair.

Spurs did not make an official approach for Osvaldo in January but have retained an interest in the player and may now be encouraged to make a move in the summer.
