Transfer report

Bologna ace has been a bit-part player this season but has scored 25 goals across the last three years

Newcastle United are looking to land Italy international Mattia Destro as Rafael Benitez attempts to add more goals to his side.

The Magpies have only scored seven times this campaign and need more firepower if they are to survive the threat of relegation to the Championship.

Mattia Destro in action for Bologna.

And now it has been reported that the Magpies want to strengthen their forward line in time for the second half of the campaign by landing Destro.

The 27-year-old has struggled for form at Bologna this term and has so far failed to score in six Serie A outings.

Now a fresh start looks on the cards and Calciomercato have claimed that Newcastle are currently alongside Sampdoria in a two-horse race for the striker’s signature.


The Ascoli-born man, who has played for both Roma and AC Milan during his career, has managed 25 goals in 89 Serie A appearances for Bologna.
