The center forward has agreed to leave AS Roma to move to AC Milan, Football Italia reports.

Destro, who will turn 24 in March, plays very much like his coach, Filippo Inzaghi, did. Therefore, it isn't a surprise that Inzaghi was eager to bring him to Milan.

Mattia Destro: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Destro sports four goals through 13 appearances (seven starts) in Serie A this season.

Destro's record of 23 goals in 33 league starts since joining Roma in 2012 is very good, but with more proven senior strikers in the squad, the 23-year-old finds consistent playing time hard to come by.

Destro scored a fourth-minute header in Roma's win over Chievo on Saturday.

Destro has been stellar to begin this season, as the 23-year-old striker now boasts three goals in four appearances (two starts) thus far. With five shot attempts (four on goal), Destro led Roma in the category, which should inspire manager Rudi Garcia to start him on a more regular basis moving forward.

Destro scored from nearly the middle of the pitch when he found Verona goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini off his line in Roma's 2-0 win Saturday.

It was definitely a goal to remember, and Destro now has two goals in his last two starts for Roma, who face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday and then Juventus in Serie A play on Sunday.

Destro was an unused substitute for Roma's 5-1 drubbing of CSKA Moscow in their opening Champions League group stage match on Wednesday.

Gerinho and Juan Iturbe started up front, with the two players combining for three of Roma's five goals. Destro has started one of Roma's two Serie A matches and he is a fairly unreliable fantasy option given his inconsistent starts.

An appeal by Destro for a reduction in his three-match ban for punching Cagliari's Davide Astori has been denied, Football Italia reports.

Hopefully Destro learns from this mistake.

Destro has been suspended for three matches for punching Cagliari defender Davide Astori over the weekend in a match he scored three goals in, Football Italia reports.

This is not good timing for Destro if he wishes to make a late push for a spot on Italy's World Cup team.

The striker scored twice in Roma's 3-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday.

This is a good sign for the player who has spent lots of time out injured.
