Destro pleased to be wanted

Siena youngster Mattia Destro admits that he is proud with links to clubs such as Juventus and Roma.

The Italian Under-21 international has caught the eye this season thanks to his five goals in 20 top-flight games so far.

“To be of interest to a side like Juventus is very pleasing,” he told Tuttosport. “However, that link was only there while I was scoring goals.

“The future will tell me what is best for myself – whether to play in the provinces or whether to join a big club.”

Destro, formerly of Inter and Genoa, is also attracted by the idea of teaming up with Italian Under-21 international teammate Fabio Borini in the capital.

“Roma is a great club and they’ve made some good signings, particularly Borini,” the 20-year-old continued.

“To have a teammate like him, who is a friend, would be something important.”
