Watford, Newcastle and Depor chasing Bologna striker Mattia Destro

Bologna striker Mattia Destro is on the radar of Watford and Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old is going through a tricky time in Italy with coach Roberto Donadoni dropping the forward having questioned his attitude this season.

Destro has netted five times in 20 appearances this season for La Rossa.

Il Resto del Carino report that Rafael Benitez is keen to bring the former Roman man to the Magpies but could face competition from Watford and Deportivo la Coruna.

The forward moved to Bologna for £7.65m from Roma.
