Roma striker keen on Arsenal links

Although Arsenal bought Danny Welbeck on the last day of the summer transfer window, there are many Arsenal fans that still think the Gunners are in need of a top top striker to take us to the next level, especially with the ridiculous amount of injuries sustained by the Arsenal squad.

We have been linked with a move for the young Roma striker Mattia Destro recently amid reports that he is not happy with being left on the bench too often at the Italian club.

He has a pretty good record of 22 goals in 49 appearances for Roma, but he has made it clear that he will be more than happy to listen to offers in the summer.

“Arsenal for me? The rumours are good, I’m happy for them.” Destro said in the Evening Standard. “This is the proof that I’m doing my work well,”

“There are so many things that I can improve on. I must never stop and continue to learn new things.

“The coach encourages me a lot, he is teaching me some things, and I try to show my skills on the pitch, as well as the confidence he has in me.”

But despite the good words about the Roma coach he has already indicated that there may be some decisions to be made in July. “It’s right that the coach makes his decisions,” Destro said last month. “At the end of the season, I’ll make mine.”

So how many Arsenal fans think that Destro would be an improvement on Dann Welbeck and Olivier Giroud?

      I have to say I think Wenger is a self-centred arrogant lousy Manager. He has Campbell won’t play him but could have sold him for a lot of money. Podolski a proven player he won’t play. It seems to me that he is now buying expensive players playing them in the wrong position and as a result they will lose the value they were bought for.

      I am a firm believer that if there was one person who does not fit in the Arsenal Line up It is Wenger. He is like an old general with no ideas.

        Whilst spending roughly 75-85m

  3. davidnz says:

    Nobody can beat Giroud or Wellbeck.
    Their by far the greatest strikers
    the world has ever seen…

  4. Greg says:

    Hey! Wouldnt mind destro coming to us , and giving us 35 – 40 goals! Coyg!

  5. Greg says:

    Its sad though that we are not getting to see, the full potential of what joel campbell can really do to the opposition in an arsenal shirt!

  6. Greg says:

    Apart from thomas rosicky and joel campbell being unhappy on the bench, “prince podolski” who is also not pleased with limited game time is now strongly remoured to leave us in january! Oh wenger! What are you doing to our beloved arsenal fc?

  7. Enygma says:

    Any player who is not happy at Arsenal can leave with the exception of Sanchez,Koschienly and may be Gibbs.That way Arsenal will reduce on a bunch of average players.
    U ramble here everyday on how we are a top team and how we should be winning trophies.
    Which top team in the league is winning trophies with the likes of Campbell,Podolski,Rocisky,Giroud and the like?

  8. ruelando says:

    DESTRO, really, he simple said he is happy that several clubs are interested in him and suddenly we are been linked to him.
    Not even taking in account that we have players here not even making the bench and perhaps even more talented and he is going to want come to arsenal and then the idiots here that believe such crap.

    Admin please look for possible DMs and CBs that are available and could be realistically approach by arsenal and please no drivel on no expensive dm or cb which arsenal will not buy

    How saNoGoals is ahead of podolski and campbell in the pecking order truly is a mystery
