Destro headhunted by Serie A clubs
Italian Serie A
Siena’s striker Mattia Destro is being head-hunted by several Serie A clubs, including Inter, Juventus and Roma.
Destro, whose notable second season in Serie A with 12 goals left many clubs impressed with his efforts and is since been linked with several clubs in the Italian peninsula, while Siena are eager to keep him at the club.
The 21-year-old is half owned by Genoa and Inter, but the Tuscans hold a buyout clause which could see them acquire 50% of his ownership from Genoa, but they have hit a stumbling block in their efforts.
“We tried to find an agreement with Genoa but it has not been reached, and then we decided to exercise our right to half of the ownership,” the club’s Sporting Director Stephano Antonelli told Radio Mana Mana.
“On our side there is serenity, there is no alliance with any club. We only need to coordinate with Genoa to find the best solution for the boy.”
Destro narrowly missed out on a spot in the final 23-man squad Italy coach Cesare Prandelli took with him to the Euros.
“Roma is an interested party, but there are also important foreign clubs who have had contact with us and with Genoa,” continued Antonelli.
“There is also Inter and Juventus.”
Reports have suggested, should Destro make the move to the capital city, Roma striker Fabio Borini could go the other way.
“I do not know if the situation is linked to that of Borini, I do not think that they are related. But now we must remain tranquil."
