Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi has confirmed their bid for Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov.

“Of course we need to replace [Cristiano] Lucarelli after his Livorno move and we are looking at what is on the market,” said Ghirardi.

“Champions like Bojinov earn exorbitant wages and have been paid a great deal, even if this player has the added bonus of being very young, as he was born in 1986.

“We’re trying to set up talks for Bojinov, but it is premature to talk about this now.

“We are happy with our transfer policy so far and I think we can make the most of many youngsters who want to prove themselves.”
