The highly-rated young Italian international is expected to be on the move this winter after falling out of favour with Roma manager Rudi Garcia at times this season, and he has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old first caught the eye last season with an impressive record of 13 goals, but has only managed four Serie A goals this term after being in and out of the starting lineup at the Stadio Olimpico, with Milan now hoping to pounce.

With Fernando Torres leaving the club to join Atletico Madrid, manager Filippo Inzaghi needs reinforcements upfront, with another big name in Mario Balotelli also leaving the club for Liverpool during the summer.

Destro could be the answer upfront, with Arsenal perhaps looking to prioritise other areas of their squad for the time being.
