Salernitana are very interested in signing Inter defender Lorenzo Pirola this summer, and the Nerazzurri have made their asking price of €8 million clear.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are holding out for their valuation of the 21-year-old, whilst the Campanian club are stepping up their interest.

Pirola had spent the past two seasons on loan with Monza, helping the Lombard team to promotion from Serie B, but they did not exercise their purchase option on the young defender, as they were wary of paying the €8 million fee involved.

The Nerazzurri did not wish to give Monza a discount on a permanent sale of the 21-year-old as they are holding out for the full amount in line with their valuation of the defender.

Salernitana look to be the club to have stepped up the most among those interested in Pirola, and they would be ready to make a deal at around Inter’s asking price.
