Inter have three keen suitors for defender Lorenzo Pirola, according to a report in the Italian media tonight. said Parma, Cagliari and Monza were all interested in taking the centre-back on loan for the 2021-22 season.

Inter could keep Pirola in their first-team squad next season as a replacement for Aleksandar Kolarov, with Simone Inzaghi set to assess the 19-year-old in pre-season.

They have ruled out a permanent sale, unless they received an incredible offer, but they are prepared to loan Pirola out if another club offers a convincing plan for him.

Parma called Inter at their club offices today to make an offer for Pirola, with the Ducali looking to make an immediate return to Serie A after last season’s dismal relegation.

Cagliari have also made a request for the 19-year-old, as part of their talks with Inter for Nahitan Nandez (a possible replacement for Achraf Hakimi).

Monza had Pirola on loan last season and would be willing to have him back as they make another bid for promotion to Serie A.

Atalanta have also registered an interest for Pirola, but the Bergamaschi have yet to make any further steps and are therefore considered a less likely destination.
