Arsenal open talks over £19m Serie A striker
Arsenal have made a formal approach to AS Roma over the possible signing of young Italian striker Mattia Destro, according to Calciomercato.it.
The Gunners are keen to sign a new striker after learning that Olivier Giroud could be out of action through injury until January, and Destro has emerged as a top target for Arsene Wenger.
The 23-year-old scored 13 goals in just 20 games for Roma last season, and his fine form has also seen him linked with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
