Out of favour at AS Roma and a loan spell at AC Milan over, 24 year old striker Mattia Destro is on the hunt for a new club. The super rich principality side AS Monaco are favourites to land the player, but with the deal seemingly stalling, Fiorentina have continued to wait in the wings.
ViolaNews have reported that Fiorentina may offer the player; who may prefer to remain in Italy, an initial loan spell, with an option to pay the giallorossi an €11 million fee to secure his services permanently next summer. With the reported interest from Monaco in Mario Gomez, there is still hope that a deal that is beneficial to all concerned could be reached.
Destro has shown flashes of brilliance and bags of potential in his career so far, but is yet to find his rhythm at a club that is the right fit for him. Could he find his feet at Fiorentina? If the Monaco deal falls through, we may be about to find out.
