Destro not thinking about Inter

Mattia Destro has shrugged off any possible transfer talk until the season is over, specifying today where his focus lies.

The forward has attracted praise and market speculation this season in light of some eye-catching performances for Siena.

However, where the likes of Juventus and former side Inter have been said in recent months to be tracking the recently-turned 21-year-old, the player himself is not encouraging anything.

“I am thinking only about survival with Siena and doing well with [Ciro] Ferrara,” the forward told the Press during his involvement this week in the Italian Under-21s’ get-together in Rome.

“The Under-21s are a great group and we are doing something significant.

“I prefer to think about this, then you will see what happens in June. Inter? It is a discussion that does not concern me anymore.”

Destro, however, did have time to speak of one future ambition, breaking into the senior international set-up.

“It is clear that the dream of wearing the Azzurri shirt is there, but in the meantime, I want to do well with the Under-21s. Our goal is to qualify as soon as possible to the European Championship finals and then aim for a great result.”
