Franceso Totti hopes Roma will be able to seal the signing of promising Genoa striker Mattia Destro.

Destro, 20, was selected as part of Italy’s preliminary squad for Euro 2012 having caught the eye with his performances last season for Siena, who co-own the player.

He has since been widely linked with a move to one of Serie A’s top clubs.

Although his transfer to Roma looked to be a done deal, Genoa chief executive Pietro Lo Monaco claimed Juventus had turned the player’s head with a lucrative offer.

However, veteran Roma captain Totti is still hoping the Italy Under-21 international will soon arrive at the Stadio Olimpico.

“I hope we can get Destro,” he said.

“We’re talking about a very promising young man here.

“The atmosphere at Siena is very different to that of Roma, but I think that within a couple of years, he could become a top player.”

Totti said he ready to fit in with the plans of new coach Zdenek Zeman, who has linked up with the forward again 13 years after his previous spell in charge.

“The coach told me that I’m in better shape now than I was 13 years ago, but I think he was joking,” he said.

“My role? I’ll play where the coach tells me to. I have always adapted, and will do so again.”
