Inter striker Diego Milito has expressed his admiration for Roma counterpart Mattia Destro’s abilities.
Milito’s side are currently without a back-up target man and Inter’s top scorer last season appears to have reached his own conclusions about who to sign, hailing Destro as an up-and-coming striker to look out for.
“I really like Mattia Destro,” Milito told Inter Channel.
“I watched him play three years ago before he left us. He’s young, he has plenty of time to grow and has his whole career in front of him.”
The two strikers were together at Inter in 2010 and Milito saw first-hand the potential of the youngster before he left the San Siro club’s youth set up for Genoa.
Destro, 22, currently on loan at the capital club, is fast becoming one of Italy’s brightest attacking prospects, having scored four goals in 10 appearances this season.
But while Milito praised the Italian, he added that the lack of attacking options is not affecting his side.
“The sub striker issue has turned into a drama,” he said. “There is talent all around us.”
