Cristiano Lucarelli is ready to stay with Parma.

"I had a chat regarding my future just yesterday," revealed Lucarelli.

"Sporting director Pietro Leonardi called me and he said that the club wants me to stay. So I believe that I will be staying at 99.9 per cent.

"Our President, Tommaso Ghirardi, is ambitious and will strengthen the squad in every position.

"I hope he will be able to build a competitive side. Our main target will be to avoid any risks and earn survival as early as we can."
