Egypt winger Mahmoud Trezeguet is set to join Inter Milan in the summer but will spend next season on loan at Parma, according to Italian reports.
"I will pro2bably arrive in Milan and then go to Parma, it will be a loan for a season," Calcio Mercato quoted Trezeguet as telling Italian paper Per Gazzetta dello Sport.
The 23-year-old spent last term on loan at Turkey's Kasimpasa from Belgian giants Anderlecht, impressing in his debut season with 16 goals in all competitions.
He is a key player for the Egyptian national team, having featured in all of the team's three Group A games at the World Cup in Russia.
However, he made little impact as the Pharaohs had a nightmarish campaign after failing to bag a single point.
They conceded a last-gasp goal to lose 1-0 to Uruguay, slumped to a 3-1 defeat by hosts Russia before shipping another late goal in a disappointing 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia.
Trezeguet, 23, made 29 appearances with Egypt, scoring twice and providing four assists.
Should he complete his move to Inter Milan, he will be the sixth player to play in the Serie A after Hazem Emam (Udinese), Hani Said (Fiorentina and Bari), Mido (AS Roma), Ahmed Hegazi (Fiorentina) and Mohamed Salah (Fiorentina and AS Roma).
