Giannini believes Jackson Martinez is a good fit

Former Roma midfielder Giuseppe Giannini spoke today about the summer mercato and how Roma should approach the window:

A simple question: do you think Jackson Martinez is the right player for Roma next season?
“Surely the next Roma striker will be at the highest level. The Colombian would definitely be a great investment, but the final word will be given by Garcia, he’s the only one able to understand the technical requirements of the players.”

The explosion of Destro could slow the need for a striker?
“He’s doing very well, his scoring average is frightening. If they actually do get a striker, the first thing they must figure out is – can the striker play with Destro, Totti and Gervinho.”
