The attacking midfielder scored 15 goals in the Serie A helping Parma consolidate an eighth-placed finish this year. He is a product of the Juve youth system but he has played for Parma for the past two seasons after initially joining the club on loan in 2010.
He has attracted the interest of Inter Milan and many other leading clubs in recent weeks and with cash-strapped Parma keen to obtain funds to strengthen their squad, it is quite likely that he will be allowed to leave.
But the player is said to be a loyal individual and Ghirardi admitted that he could very well choose to turn down the opportunity to play for the unbeaten Serie A champions. Juve currently co-own the player and have the first option of purchasing the player outright and are rumoured to be ready to make a bid for the Italy international.
"A lot of sides have asked us about Giovinco, but there are no real offers on the table," Ghirardi told Sky Sport Italia.
"We firstly need to speak with Juventus. That will happen soon so that we can sort out his co-ownership status. There will be plenty of time for other scenarios."
"I think that he'll either stay here with us of re-join Juventus. They are the most likely outcomes.
"But then if a club wants to offer a lot of money then anything can happen, but these are difficult financial times.
"I've spoken to Sebastian and he told me that he wants to stay here or go to Juventus."
An important consideration for the 25-year-old will be whether he will get regular first team football at the Bianconeri. Manager Antonio Conte has often rotated his squad allowing most of his players regular playing time but he has yet to find a leading frontman to deliver the goals. Juve are currently on the hunt for a marquee signing in attack which could further increase the competition for Giovinco if he joins the club.
"We don't have the need to generate money and a lot will depend on what Juventus want to do," confessed Ghirardi.
"He is good enough to get into the first team at a side like Juve, but we have to see if the Bianconeri are convinced of his ability."
Juve have already made overtures to Gonzalo Higuain and Paul Pogba as they seek to build on their first title triumph in ten years.
