thumbnail Hello,

The in-demand forward has admitted that he would love to play with the veteran Germany international, whilst claiming he came close to joining the Biancocelesti in the past

Siena striker Mattia Destro has claimed it would be an honour to play alongside Miroslav Klose at Lazio amidst rumours the Roman club are interested in acquiring his services at the end of the season.

The Italy Under-21 international is currently co-owned by Genoa and has scored 11 Serie A goals this term for Giuseppe Sannino's side.

With Inter, Juventus and Roma all linked with Destro, the player himself seems to favour a move to Edy Reja's side, and admitted he came close to joining the Biancocelesti in the past.

“It’s true that I was close to Lazio in the past, but then nothing came of it. Me and Klose in attack? He’s a great champion and it would be an honour to play alongside him," the 21-year-old told La Lazio Siamo Noi.

However, the in-form frontman has stated he wishes to put any thoughts of a possible summer move on ice in order to concentrate on having a good end to the current campaign.

“I want to end this season in the best possible manner. After that I’ll think about everything else. Once the campaign has come to an end then I will evaluate what options are available to me.”

Destro and his Siena team-mates are in Serie A action on Sunday when they entertain Parma.
