Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi hopes to close negotiations for the loan signing of Inter Milan striker Adriano.

Inter supremo Massimo Moratti is keen to send Adriano back to his former club and Ghirardi says: "It's very simple. We are looking at some market solutions for the attack. To meet with Inter is always very interesting.

"Sure we will speak about Adriano, he is a champion.

"Adriano is an operation that is feasible if we decide to make one big signing to finish the market off this week."
