Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to make Mattia Destro his first signing at the club and is set to make an £14million offer to Roma for his services.

Pochettino, who was confirmed as Spurs’ new manager this week, has been promised some funds to re-shape the team but younger players are his clear target.

Destro, 23, scored 13 goals in 20 matches last season for Roma and earned himself a place in Italy’s World Cup squad.
