Destro to Roma inside 24 hours

Enrico Preziosi admits that Mattia Destro is now free to complete a transfer to Roma and that it could be concluded by tomorrow.

The striker’s co-ownership between Siena and the Grifone was finally resolved this week and reports this morning already suggested that terms for the youngster’s transfer to the Giallorossi were agreed.

As reports persist that the deal has already been reached, with Genoa reportedly receiving as much as €7m up front on an initial loan move plus co-ownership of Gianmario Piscitella, Preziosi has admitted that talks could be less than 24 hours away from completion.

“If there are no hitches then the sale of Destro could be sealed by tomorrow,” the President told Genoa’s official website.

“I am waiting to hear, from my own people, the outcome of the meeting, but the path is now clear for him to go.”
