Inter considering Destro bid

Inter have reportedly added Roma’s Mattia Destro to their list of potential targets to reinforce their attack with this summer.

Destro has impressed for the Giallorossi since returning from injury with a goal ratio greater than one a game this term.

A former youth graduate for the Nerazzurri, who was sold in 2010 to Genoa as part of the deal that saw Andrea Ranocchia join La Beneamata, reports this week from a number of outlets are that the Milan outfit have identified the 23-year-old as another possible target this summer.

Known and confirmed by their President Erick Thohir to hold hope of signing one from Edin Dzeko, Fernando Torres and Alvaro Morata this summer, Tuttosport and Calciomercato.com lead the way in assessing that Destro has emerged as a fourth option.

It is believed that Inter see the striker as having the potential to link well with Rodrigo Palacio and Mauro Icardi, whilst like Morata he is also one who would aid in the club’s focus to reduce the playing staff’s average age.

However, Roma are seen as unwilling to part with Destro and hold him to a valuation of €25m. The capital club paid a total of €16m to sign him in 2012.
