'Parma will sign a midfielder'

Tommaso Ghirardi has assured Parma fans that a ‘quality midfielder’ will join the club this summer.

The Crociati sold Marco Parolo to Lazio earlier in the window, but the President has insisted that he will dip into his pockets to find a replacement.

“We have a great team,” he told RTL 102.5. “We showed that last season by finishing sixth.

“We reluctantly sold Parolo, but we’re proud of him for representing us at the World Cup.

“I think we’ll bring in a midfielder. We have a gap there, and we’re considering the signing of a quality midfielder.”
