Inter are considering making a swoop for Parma striker Sebastian Giovinco, can reveal.

The Nerazzurri have yet to approach the forward's current club or his agent, but they are closely monitoring the Italy international's situation.

Giovinco is currently co-owned by Parma and Juventus, and a decision on his future will be made this summer.

Juventus intend to re-acquire the remaining 50 per cent of the player's rights, before cashing in on the 25-year-old by either off-loading him permanently, or including him in a deal that would see Napoli striker Edinson Cavani move to Juventus.

However, there's also a chance that Parma will win the bid for Giovinco's full economic rights, thus giving the Ennio Tardini side the freedom to negotiate with any interested clubs.

Inter sporting director Marco Branca is a keen admirer of Giovinco, but realises there is little chance Juventus will sell the attacker to one of their arch rivals.

The Giuseppe Meazza side appear to be ready to including youngsters such as Luc Castaignos, Coutinho and Marco Faraoni in a potential deal if Parma manage to acquire Giovinco's rights.

The Gialloblu and Inter enjoy a good relationship following the transfers of players such as McDonald Mariga, Jonathan Biabiany and Jonathan in recent years.
