Pezzella set for Parma

Udinese left-back Giuseppe Pezzella is set to join Parma on loan with obligation to buy.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports the deal is close to going through, with Pezzella having put in a request to make the move.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Genoa, but he played just five Serie A games and they subsequently passed up their €7m option to buy.

He recently represented Italy at the European Under-21 Championship and knows Parma sporting director Daniele Faggiano well from their time together at Palermo.

The Ducali need a new left-back after Massimo Gobbi retired.
