Giorgio Perinetti warns against Mattia Destro, Fabio Quagliarella swap

Former Siena sporting director Giorgio Perinetti says that Mattia Destro is Italy's "striker of the future".

Former Siena sporting director Giorgio Perinetti has advised Roma to keep hold of striker Mattia Destro.

The 21-year-old has not scored since joining the Galiarossi from Siena in the summer and there is speculation that Juventus could propose a swap with Fabio Qualiarella.

However, Perinetti believes that Zdenek Zeman should keep faith with the Italian international.

"I wouldn't do the swap if I was Roma," Perinetti told the Gazzetta Giallorossa. "That's not because Quagliarella is not a good player, but because the potential of Destro is massive.

"To give him to Juventus would mean handing over Italy's striker of the future. Roma went for him and I think they'll keep a tight grip on him."

Destro scored 13 goals for Siena last season.
