Fiorentina: Destro in, Gomez out?

Mattia Destro is eager to join Fiorentina and could get his wish if Mario Gomez goes to Besiktas.

The Roma striker has rejected numerous different proposals, including AS Monaco, West Ham United and Wolfsburg.

He spent the last six months on loan at Milan, but they decided not to activate their €18m option to buy.

Destro is determined to stay in Italy and would particularly relish a move to Fiorentina.

The Viola need a striker and will be even more eager to swoop for Destro if the proposed Gomez sale to Besiktas goes through.

Destro joins Roma tour

Roma’s squad for a pre-season tour of Australia includes transfer-listed Mattia Destro and Milan target Alessio Romagnoli.

The Giallorossi will fly out to Australia and Indonesia, where they’ll play friendlies in Melbourne against Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Although Destro has been linked with Monaco, West Ham United and Fiorentina, the striker is still making the trip.

So is defender Romagnoli after Milan reportedly raised their offer to €23m.

Destro turns down Monaco?

Roma's deal to sell Mattia Destro to Monaco could have fallen through as the player turned down a Ligue 1 transfer.

The 24-year-old poacher will likely leave the Lupi before the end of the summer, but Italian media seem divided as to his destination.

In spite of previous reports from Sky Sport Italia linking Destro to Monaco with great insistence, Il Tempo is running the line that the deal fell through.

Destro joins SES in Monaco?

Mattia Destro was jeered by Roma fans during a match and edges closer to a Monaco move alongside Stephan El Shaarawy.

AS Monaco are very active on the market after selling Geoffrey Kondogbia to Inter and seem focused on Serie A talent.

Curiously, the team is currently in Italy for pre-season training and on the verge of completing a swoop for Milan forward El Shaarawy.

Roma jeered during defeat

Roma lost their first friendly of the season 2-1 to Gyrmot Gyor and were jeered by fans, but Leandro Castan made his comeback.

The most important thing about this game was the return to the playing field of Castan, the defender who has been out of action for a year due to surgery on a cavernoma - an abnormal cluster of blood vessels in the brain.

The Giallorossi’s first friendly of the season got off to an inauspicious start, as before 60 seconds had elapsed the Hungarian second division side already rattled the crossbar from a corner.

Destro meets Monaco today?

Roma striker Mattia Destro is reportedly set to meet with Monaco today, reducing the chances of a Fiorentina deal.

The Italian international spent the second half of last season on loan at Milan, but the Rossoneri opted not to take up their option of signing him permanently.

A move to Monaco appeared to have collapsed last month, but the deal has been revived, and Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Destro will meet with the principality club today.

Roma, Mitrovic after Destro

Roma are reportedly all-in for Anderlecht's Aleksandar Mitrovic, but only after the sale of Mattia Destro.

The Giallorossi were already linked to the 20-year-old last week, and it seems they may be looking to seal the deal in the near future.

The site of Sport Italia pundit Alfredo Pedulla reports that there are incessant contacts between Roma and Anderlecht and that the Serie A club is now driven to close the deal.

Roma have Dzeko deal?
