The Bari midfielder has taken Serie B by storm with a series of brilliant displays.
Roma and Juventus are the two clubs that have been most heavily linked - with the former already part owners, relinquishing half of his contract to Bari as part of the deal that saw Antonio Cassano go the other way.
D'Agostino scored in the Italian youth side's impressive 4-1 win over Yugoslavia, and is aware that he is being watched by the big clubs.
"I'm happy that Juventus have shown an interest in me because it means I'm on the right road," D'Agostino admitted.
"But my heart has remained in the capital. Roma allowed me to grow as a man and a player. They gave me the chance to become an important figure."
