Parma talks for Swiss international

Out-of-contract left-back Loris Benito has arrived in Italy to listen to a contract proposal from Parma, as he is set to leave BSC Young Boys at the end of the month.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, the Switzerland international available on a free transfer will meet with representatives of the Ducali today.

He will reportedly have to decide between joining the Gialloblu or heading to Ligue 1, as Girondins des Bordeaux have also put an offer on the table.

The 27-year-old joined the Berne-based club from Benfica in 2015 for €3m and played 42 times in all competitions this season, including a famous 2-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League.

Benito can also fill in at centre-back and played in that role in the victory over the Bianconeri, but was on the bench as his country lost the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff to England on penalties.
