Reports in Italy claim that the Rossoneri are ready to launch a loan bid for the out-of-favour Roma attacker.

AC Milan are ready to make a move to sign Roma’s Mattia Destro, according to calciomercato.com.

The Italy international has found himself down Rudi Garcia’s pecking order this season and has only started seven Serie A games this season, scoring four goals.

However, with the likes of Francesco Totti and Gervinho starting ahead of Destro, transfer rumours are rife that his future could be away from the Stadio Olimpico.

Milan have parted company with Fernando Torres, who is off to Atletico Madrid on loan, and as such are believed to want a striker this January.

The report claims that the San Siro outfit will look to take Destro on loan initially, with an option to buy in the summer.

For Tottenham and Arsenal, who have both been heavily linked with the Italian marksman in the past, surely now is the time to take action.

Spurs are over-reliant on Harry Kane for goals, with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor not offering adequate support for the home-grown star.

The Gunners meanwhile have parted company with Lukas Podolski on loan and as such could well have an attacking void in Arsene Wenger’s squad.
