Mattia Destro flattered by Juventus link

The former Inter starlet has recently been linked with a move to the Old Lady and is honoured that a club of the Bianconeri's stature are keeping tabs on him
Siena attacker Mattia Destro has expressed his joy with Juventus' alleged interest in him and has made it clear that he has long been a fan of the Turin outfit.

A number of recent reports suggested that the Old Lady are considering making a move for the Italy Under-21 star this summer and Destro is pleased to have caught Juve's attention, although he wants to focus on his current club for now.

"It is very pleasing to hear that Juve are interested in signing me. I have been a fan ever since I was a kid," Destro was quoted as saying by Il Corriere dello Sport.

"However, I just want to focus on Siena for now."

The 20-year-old then went on to say that AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juventus forward Marco Borriello are his role models.

"Ibrahimovic is one of my role models, while I like Borriello a lot."

Destro came through the ranks of the Inter youth academy, but left the Nerazzurri for Genoa before breaking into the first team.

He was farmed out on loan to Siena at the start of the 2011-12 campaign and has since impressed with a string of fine displays.
