AC Milan to move for Destro and Ogbonna during January

AC Milan look set to bolster their squad in January and have set Angelo Ogbonna of Torino and Mattia Destro of Roma as possible transfer targets.

Following the €15 million sale of Alexander Pato to Corinthians, the Rossoneri are on the look out for an attacker, a void which they believe Destro could fill.

The young Roma striker has been inconsistant for Roma this season, scoring 5 goals in 15 appearances, and is often kept out of the starting line up, by the more impressive Pablo Osvaldo.

It would not be the first time, in recent times, that the Rossoneri took a young striker off of Roma’s hands following Bojan Krkic’s similar move last summer.

The transfer of Ogbonna would be a great coup for the Rossoneri considering the interest being shown in the 24-year-old. Both Inter and Juventus, among others, have shown interest in the Torino youth graduate.

Both men have also been given their senior Italy debuts over the past year, with Ogbonna going on the play five games for the Azzurri, and Destro making four appearances while also contributing one goal.
