Arsenal looking to seal the deal for prolific Italian forward?


According to reports in the Italian media, Arsene Wenger is thought to be monitoring A.S. Roma’ Mattia Destro and could make a move in January.

Injury to Giroud and the possible loan move of Joel Campbell means that Arsenal will be short on the striking department with Danny Welbeck being the only out and out striker.

The Roma front man has been in sensational form since joining the Giallorossi. Having scored at a rate of 0.80 goals per game, the Italian has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, including the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.

TuttoMercatoWeb claims that Arsenal have begun informal talks with the Italian outfit, for the services of Destro.

Roma’s willingness to sell is no secret. The Giallorossi accepted an offer from Wolfsburg in the summer, who were then rebuffed by the player himself.

However, should Arsenal come calling with an offer in January, it would be hard for the player to turn down the chance to play in the Premier League.
