Bojinov set for Serie A

Parma have confirmed they are in talks to sign the striker.

Seen as surplus to requirements now at Manchester City, Valeri Bojinov could well be on his way to Parma.

Of course we need to replace [Cristiano] Lucarelli after his Livorno move and we are looking at what is on the market,” said Parma President Tommaso Ghirardi.

“Champions like Bojinov earn exorbitant wages and have been paid a great deal, even if this player has the added bonus of being very young, as he was born in 1986.

“We’re trying to set up talks for Bojinov, but it is premature to talk about this now.

“We are happy with our transfer policy so far and I think we can make the most of many youngsters who want to prove themselves.”
