Roma striker Mattia Destro has revealed that he is happy to have been linked with a switch to north London side Arsenal in the near future, as reported by Tuttosport.
The striker has been linked with making a transfer to the Premier League side recently, and it now seems as though he is keen to make the move.
Destro has impressed since moving to Roma after an initially tricky period at the start of his time with the capital city club, scoring 22 goals in only 49 appearances, but the player believes he has not played the level of football that his displays merit.
The Italian striker admitted that he could yet stay with Roma, and also praised the club’s manager Rudi Garcia, who has led them to sit three points away from league leaders Juventus.
This means that a switch might not be entirely simple, but Arsenal have undoubtedly been handed a considerable boost.
He said: “Arsenal for me? The rumours are good, I’m happy for them. This is the proof that I’m doing my work well.
“There are so many things that I can improve on. I must never stop and continue to learn new things.
“The coach encourages me a lot, he is teaching me some things, and I try to show my skills on the pitch, as well as the confidence he has in me.”
