Juventus have opened talks with Siena and Genoa with a view to signing Mattia Destro, Goal.com can reveal.

The 21-year-old striker has been strongly linked with a new challenge after impressing on loan at Siena, with 12 goals in Serie A in 2011-12.

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has also met with Siena director Giorgio Perinetti because the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit are obliged to purchase 50 per cent of the striker's economic rights as part of the loan deal.

The Serie A champions have also met with Genoa to discuss the possibility of Ciro Immobile moving to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the summer.

Immobile, who spent the season on loan at Pescara, was the top scorer in Serie B with 28 goals, and could be included in a deal for Destro.

It is understood that the Old Lady have already reached an agreement with Destro's agent, but a potential stumbling block could be the first option that Inter have on the striker, if Genoa decide to sell.

Destro, who spent his youth career at San Siro, is part of Italy's provisional squad for Euro 2012.
