The attacker is currently co-owned by Juventus and Parma, but could be on his way to the Nerazzurri in the summer transfer window if the Bianconeri lose 50 per cent of his rights

Italy international Sebastian Giovinco is open to a move to Inter ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, Goal.com has learned.
Goal.com revealed in May that the Nerazzurri were considering a surprise move for the diminutive attacker, and sporting director Piero Ausilio confirmed on Monday that Inter are indeed interested in bringing Giovinco to the Giuseppe Meazza.
The 25-year-old forward is widely expected to leave Parma in the summer, but much will depend on which team acquire the player's full economic rights.
Juventus retained 50 per cent ownership of Giovinco when he moved to the Ennio Tardini, and they have until June 22 to reach an agreement with Parma, or the full rights for the player will have to be decided through a blind auction, where the highest bidder between the two will be awarded the remaining 50%.
The Bianconeri are unlikely to sell the attacker to one of their biggest rivals, but a summer move to Inter is much more likely if Parma win the blind auction.
The Gialloblu have an excellent relationship with Inter, and are willing to let go of Giovinco for the right price.
The forward initially had doubts about a transfer to the Nerazzurri due to his strong ties with Juventus, but is now ready to make the move as he is desperate to prove his worth at a top club.
Giovinco is currently with the Italy national team at Euro 2012.
