Parma on the offensive

Parma chief Tommaso Ghirardi has been questioned on Sergio Floccari, Sebastian Giovinco and Amauri.

Kicking things off with Lazio striker Floccari, the Tardini chief hinted that a bid could be made for the forward.

"Floccari is of interest to us and is certainly a player worthy of our shirt," Ghirardi stated outside the Lega Calcio offices in Milan today.

Parma survived the drop this season with the help of Giovinco and Amauri, two players who joined them on loan from Juventus.

"Giovinco will stay here," the official said whose club do have the option to buy a 50 per cent stake in the attacker for €3.5m.

"As for Amauri, we'll have to discuss the issue with Juventus."

The Brazilian-born Italian international joined the outfit on a simple loan deal in January and will return to Turin.

With just a year left on his Juve contract, he is expected to then be sold and Parma are one club interested.
