Blues ready to make offer for Mattia Destro.
Read more Chelsea transfer rumours.
Chelsea are set to make an offer of £20 million for Italian international striker Mattia Destro from AS Roma, report the Daily Star, with flop forward Fernando Torres seemingly heading to AC Milan.
Prolific striker Destro has attracted interest from across Europe, having scored a number of goals for Rudi Garcia at the Stadio Olimpico despite not being an automatic start for the Serie A runners-up.
Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Destro, however – with an injury to new signing Diego Costa, who has scored in both of his games for the Blues, making the situation even more urgent.
Roma are unlikely to sell one of the stars of the team that has brought them back to the UEFA Champions League, where they have been drawn against Manchester City and Bayern Munich, particularly after allowing defender Mehdi Benatia to join the Bundesliga champions.
