Gunners working on deal to land Italian ace.
Arsenal have reportedly opened talks with AS Roma over the £20m transfer to sign Italian international striker Mattia Destro, according to the Daily Star.
The Gunners are in need of strengthening upfront this January, with summer signing Danny Welbeck not looking convincing in front of goal so far, and Olivier Giroud still out injured.
Destro has been in fine form in Serie A, attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, but is ready to leave the club in the near future.
The 23-year-old is unhappy at not always being a starter for his club despite his fine scoring record, and this has alerted Arsenal to his potential availability.
