Mattia Destro admits “it would be a dream to play for Roma and be trained by a great Coach like Zdenek Zeman.”
The striker is on loan at Siena and owned by Genoa, but has been linked with numerous top clubs over the past few weeks.
He was cut from the Euro 2012 squad, unlike old friend and fellow Under-21 international Fabio Borini.
“It’s weird, as I really never get to play alongside Borini,” Destro told Sportmediaset.it.
“Now he has remained with the senior Italy squad and I have gone to the Under-21 side. I hope that sooner or later I can be his strike partner, maybe even wearing the Roma jersey.
“It would be a dream to be trained by a great Coach like Zeman and even more so to play alongside a champion like Francesco Totti.”
Destro has primarily been linked with Juventus and Inter, but he would fit into Roma’s rejuvenation programme.
