Monza have asked Inter for a discount on their purchase option to sign Lorenzo Pirola on a permanent basis now that they have been promoted to Serie A.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the newly-promoted team are hoping to pay an amount closer to €4 million than the €7.5 million option that they have in the 20-year-old’s loan deal.

Pirola has spent the past two seasons on loan with Monza, helping the Lombard to promotion to the top flight via the playoff final against Pisa over the weekend.

The Lombards have a purchase option in Pirola’s deal which would allow them to make his deal a permanent one for a fee of around €7.5 million, while the Nerazzurri have a counter-option to buy him back for around €1 million more than that.

However, Monza are hoping that Inter will allow him to leave for less than that and will offer around €4 million in talks scheduled for the coming days.
