Cagliari to make Parolo bid

Cagliari are reportedly ready to offer €6.5m to Cesena for key midfielder Marco Parolo.

The 26-year-old has been on the Sardinian club's radar all summer and a bid is understood to be on its way.

Although Parolo recently signed a contract extension with the Seahorses, the Stadio Manuzzi outfit will consider any interesting offers for him.

It remains to be seen whether Cesena will be tempted to sell, but there is a possibility that Cagliari's Davide Biondini could be involved in the deal too.

Parolo was a revelation in Serie A last season, his first in the top flight, where he also won his maiden Azzurri cap.

Lazio are also interested in the 26-year-old amidst rumours that they are ready to offer €4m and Pasquale Foggia in exchange for the player.

Palermo and Fiorentina are monitoring the situation too.
