Parma have confirmed that Alberto Gilardino can leave if they get the right price for the striker.

Inter have joined Chelsea and Milan in ther race to sign the most prolific scorer in Italy gfor the past two seasons, and Parma’s sporting director Oreste Cinquini admitted that Parma would not stand in Gilardino’s way.

“I think should a big offer arrive from a big club, Gilardino would take it into consideration,” said Cinquini. “It’s an open situation.

“Parma’s position? Should an important owner arrive, it’s possible he would decide to keep Gilardino, although at the moment Parma’s officials are trying to give a future to the club, passing from the player’s sale.”

Cinquini also confirmed Inter’s interest in Gilardino, but he expects Chelsea to be the favourites to capture the Italian.

“I’ve heard from Moratti on more than one occasion,” revealed Cinquini.

“I think Milan are always interested but there might be a blitz from another side, not necessarily an Italian one.

“Chelsea, for example, seem to be not satisfied with Drogba’s season. Chelsea need a goalscorer.”
