thumbnail Hello,

The owner of the Stadio Ennio Tardini outfit said that the club are calm over the player's future and was quick to point out that they will profit from a potential sale

Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi is not afraid of losing Sebastian Giovinco in the summer.

The 25-year-old attacker, who is co-owned by Parma and Juventus, has been strongly linked with a return to Turin after impressing at the Stadio Ennio Tardini since his arrival in 2010.

Earlier in the month, Giovinco cast further doubt over his long-term future at Parma by saying that he was open to all possibilities.

Ghirardi has indicated that even if Parma lose their star player, the transfer will allow them to strengthen their squad in the summer.

"We do not fear losing Giovinco," Ghirardi told Tuttusport. "We are proud to have him with us, but losing him would allow a boost to the club's coffers."

The Italy international has scored 10 goals in 26 league appearances in 2011-12 for Parma, who are 17th in the Serie A table.
