Destro's agent confirms Chelsea interest

There will be no swap deal involving Fernando Torres and Mattia Destro, according to the Italian player's agent, who admits the Blues are interested in the Roma striker.

Reports had suggested that Roma were keen to lure the Spaniard to Serie A and both clubs were open to an exchange involving their strikers.

"It's true that Chelsea are interested in Mattia," Destro's agent told Press Association Sport on Thursday. "But the reports regarding a swap deal have no foundation, it's all speculation.

"Roma don't want to sell Mattia and Mattia prefers to remain at Roma."

The 23-year-old Destro was Roma's top scorer last season with 13 league goals to help the Eternal City outfit finish runners-up to Juventus in Serie A.

Destro moved to Roma in the summer of 2012 from Genoa and is under contract with the Giallorossi for another three seasons.
