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.

Fiorentina: Chiesa in, Veretout out

Federico Chiesa is in Fiorentina’s squad for the International Champions Cup, but Jordan Veretout has been left out.

Fiorentina are adamant Chiesa will not leave the club this summer, and the forward has been called up for the friendly tournament.

However, Veretout is omitted as Roma and Milan battle it out for the midfielder’s signature.

German Pezzella is also nowhere to be seen, although the defender’s exclusion is due to his recent participation at Copa America with Argentina.

Milan in Pezzella talks?

Milan have reportedly held talks over a possible deal for Fiorentina defender German Pezzella.

According to Milan News, agent Martin Guastadisegno discussed Pezzella during a meeting with Rossoneri officials on Wednesday.

However, the website warns Fiorentina value the Argentina international at €20m.

The 27-year-old has been a regular for the Viola since arriving for Real Betis in 2017.

Milan are looking for defensive reinforcements after missing out on Ozan Kabak and being seemingly priced out of Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren.

Napoli check out Pezzella?

Napoli have reportedly checked out Fiorentina defender German Pezzella as an alternative to Roma’s Kostas Manolas.

Manolas has seemingly given the green light to joining Napoli, but they have yet to negotiate a fee lower than his €36m release clause with Roma.

With that in mind, Calciomercato.it claims the Partenopei are looking at Pezzella.

The 27-year-old has been a regular for Fiorentina since arriving for Real Betis in 2017, but the website claims he could be signed for ‘much less’ than the Greek.
