Blues move for Mattia Destro.
Read more Chelsea transfer rumours.
Chelsea have entered talks to sign £20 million rated striker Mattia Destro from AS Roma, report the Metro, as Jose Mourinho looks to add more firepower to his squad despite the impressive start of Spanish international Diego Costa.
The move for the Italian international could spell the end at Stamford Bridge for misfiring striker Fernando Torres, who has found himself stuck behind Costa and returning legend Didier Drogba in the pecking order thus far this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan have both also been linked with Destro, who has an impressive goalscoring record for Roma but is not always first choice, due to manager Rudi Garcia’s propensity for playing Francesco Totti in a false nine role – meaning that a bid of around £20m is likely to be accepted by the Serie A runners-up.
