Having been left out of the Italy squad for Euro 2012 after a Serie A campaign which yielded just five goals, the 27-year-old striker is mulling over whether to remain at San SiroGiampaolo Pazzini's agent has claimed that while his client remains highly regarded at Inter, the forward is carefully considering his future with the club.
The Italy international enjoyed a scintillating start to life at San Siro following his arrival from Sampdoria in January 2011 but he notched just five goals in Serie A last season after falling behind Diego Milito in the striking pecking order.
According to the player's representative, David Torchia, Pazzini is not panicked by his current predicament and will take his time before deciding whether he wants to continue with the Nerazzurri.
“He’s highly regarded by Inter, even if anything can happen in football,” the agent told Sky Sport Italia.
“We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but it is not as if he would be an understudy to Milito forever. Things can change.
“Pazzini knows that he is a strong player and, with serenity, he will decide the best solution for himself.”
The 27-year-old forward was not included in Cesare Prandelli's preliminary panel for Euro 2012.
