Serie A duo Salernitana and Hellas Verona are keen on Inter defender Lorenzo Pirola once the purchase option of Monza for the 20-year-old expires.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri defender has several suitors if he does not join newly-promoted Monza on a permanent basis.

Pirola spent the past two seasons on loan with Monza, helping the Lombard team to promotion from Serie B during the season just gone, but they do not look keen to exercise the €8 million purchase option for him.

The newly-promoted side offered Inter €4.5 million for the defender, but the Nerazzurri rejected this offer, and he could end up at another club rather than joining Monza permanently.

Salernitana are looking to focus on young Italian players under new Sporting Director Morgan De Sanctis, whilst Verona would see him as a replacement for Nicolo Casale who is a target for Lazio and Roma.
