Destro to Roma advancing

Fabio Borini’s sale to Liverpool last night has kick-started Mattia Destro’s potential arrival at Roma as his replacement, but Milan and Juventus lurk.

The Giallorossi have received an initial €13.5m for the sale of 21-year-old forward Borini and as the Corriere dello Sport reveal today, are wasting no time in trying to reinvest it in the market.

Destro is thought to be their primary target, with sporting director Walter Sabatini even understood to be meeting with his agent Renzo Contratto today.

At the same time, Genoa are believed to be moving close to taking 100 per cent ownership of the player again, reportedly after agreeing to pay Siena €6m for their half share, marking a €4.7m profit for the Tuscans inside a couple of months.

The Grifone are then understood to be close to agreeing the player’s immediate transfer to Rome, for a fee of €12m.

However, Tuttosport believe that Milan, also in the market for a replacement to their soon-to-be-sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are prepared to match that offer.

Meanwhile, Juventus, also known to be in the striker search, are rumoured to have offered Genoa €10m plus part-ownership of Omar El Kaddouri, who is on the verge of moving to Turin from Brescia.
