Destro: 'I'm a Roma player right now'

Mattia Destro refused to confirm or deny his imminent future after scoring at Palermo. “I am a Roma player right now.”

The centre-forward has been linked with Milan, Inter, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

This evening he got his first goal since October, but was on target for the fifth time in just seven Serie A starts this season.

“I missed scoring goals, it was important to me and I’m happy it arrived tonight,” he told Sky Sport Italia after a 1-1 draw in Sicily.

“When I get the opportunity to play I always try to give my best. It’s a shame we didn’t get the victory.

“We played against an excellent side and drawing here is to be considered a good result. We wanted the win, but are satisfied with a point.”

Destro was naturally asked what his position was on the January transfer window gossip.

“My position is that I am a striker, I want to do well, to play and to score. We didn’t win, but I am happy that I scored.

“I am a Roma player right now,” he smiled after further interrogation.

Destro also spoke to Sport Mediaset and was asked if this was his farewell goal. "I don't know," was the reply.
